Suzi's Cover Letter:
Dear Fellow Lifesavers:
This is the best job for me! I am sooooo nice. I love all people, and I want to help others. I’ve been obsessed with men in uniform, and now people can obsess over me! Plus, I love that 9-1-1 show on Fox. What a cool life!
I used to play doctor with my dolls when I was a kid. When I grew up a little, I played doctor with the boys all the time. I know the patient side, too. I’m very familiar with the human anatomy.
One on my uncles used to pass out a lot from getting crunk, and I had to carry him upstairs. I’m really strong! I’m good with mouth-to-mouth (reference: playing doctor) and I know CPR. Ah, ah, ah, ah Stayin’ Alive, Stayin’ Alive!
But what I’m really jazzed about? Driving the ambulance and playing with the lights and sirens. Yipee!
Look at my face. Don’t you see “safety” written all over it?
Stethoscopes and cotton swabs,
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.
