Suzi’s Cover Letter:
This opportunity is sooo me. When my gramps used to babysit me, we used to watch that old show The Love Boat. I always wanted to be Julie the Cruise Director. So cute and fun! That’s me!
I’m great at planning activities and parties. How about these ideas?
Adult ring toss: after hours, using a man’s “rod” as the rod…

I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
