EP 50 – You Can Only Grow Through The Hard Times – Officer Amber

This was a fun interview! After speaking with Officer Amber I understand why she's in the position that she's in, as a school resource officer.

She speaks about how much she enjoys working with kids, and you can hear that in her voice, as she describes her interactions with the children in the school.

She even go a little emotional as I mentioned a photo of her and a little boy from the school. You have to hear the story of why the mentioning of this little boy, is so emotional for her.
