Suzi’s Cover Letter:
I can speak chin. Chins are very important to the look of someone’s face. A double chin is cute on a baby, but let’s be honest. You’re kind of a fatty if you have two chins. I can help people define their chin with makeup and slim their double (or triple—thanks, COVID) chin. Scarves are good for that. Or some shading.
I’m also good with Chinese Chins, because my mom was a Chin before she married my dad—a Wang. Though I’ve heard my mom has had some wangs on her chin before, but... I’m thinking that has nothing to do with this job. But if it does, I can take one or two on the chin, too.
I’m no Chelsea, but I’m a handler!

Suzi's Cover Letter:
Dear Agents of Shield,
Who doesn’t love a mascot? Or hanging out with mascots? And even though I would be down with being one, at least I’m not the one inside sweating from places I shouldn’t. Plus, I think those costumes hide my best assets, which can be used to our advantage. Wink, wink.
I think is the perfect job for a woman since we are used to shields, like panty shields, so…
I would love to be Shieldy’s hand. It’s so Game of Thrones. Without the nakedness and murder. Which is good.
Ready to Armor,
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.
