Humans of SLA Beeber: Andrea


If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

“I would love to travel to Italy because I’m Italian and I have never been to Italy before, and I would love to see the country.”

Tell me a story about your name.

“My, ooh, that’s a long story, actually my name was chosen out of a hat. So, there was four names chosen for me, if I was, um, because back then when I was born, because I’m really old, um, they didn’t know if if I was gonna be a boy or a girl. So, it was your Memom’s birthday, so everyone said ‘What are you going to name the baby, if it’s a boy or a girl?’ and they had no idea, and my mom and dad didn’t know. So everyone in our family chose a name, and my two brothers, your two uncles, Memom, and your grandpop, and they all chose a name, and it would have either of been Melony, Adrian, Andrea, or Susan. So Andrea was picked out of a hat on a little piece of paper three times. That’s how I was named.”

What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
