I sat down with Beth to find out more about our youngest employee.
I asked her a handful of questions and her answers revealed a very bright, albeit a little dark, personality!
I am the Project Lead and PA at Viegli, so I run day to day activities to make sure all our projects run on time. I started working here in October 2019!
What did you do before you started working at Viegli?
I was a waitress at Center Parcs and before that I was doing my A-Levels!
I feel like that answer might make some people feel old, I do and I’m not much older than you!
What would you say is your favourite thing about coming to work?
I like the relaxed atmosphere. We also have a culture of valuing productivity and quality over hours, so I feel like I get a really good work-life balance!
I’m disappointed you didn’t say it was sitting next to me, but I’ll let it slide!
Let’s move onto some more personal questions…
What is your favourite animal?
Uhh, I like llamas, dogs, and snakes. Sorry I can’t choose!
What would you say your favourite things to do at the weekend are?
I like spending time with my friends, going on walks, eating (a lot), and watching loads of tv shows!
If you could go anywhere would you go?
I would want to travel around Asia, I’d love to get really immersed in the culture. I want to see how different people live their lives and how location can really influence culture and behaviour.
When you were younger what did you want to do for work?
I think either a scientist, doctor, or a detective!
What about hobbies?
I like watching unsolved murder documentaries and a lot of true crime or medical documentaries, so I guess we have a similar interest there!
At this point I’m a bit surprised we don’t have it on in the office! I suppose it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
What is an interesting fact about you?
Can I tell you a few, I’m not sure which ones qualify as “interesting”.
Yeah go ahead, it’s always hard to know what’s interesting to others!
I know all the words to the first Shrek film.
I have a really long tongue so when I push my chin in I can lick my double chin. [sticks her tongue out to lick her double chin]
I have played the Saxophone since middle school.
Weirdly, the fictional horror movies always scare me more than the ‘true story’ ones!
Those are all pretty interesting. Although, I’d rather you hadn’t showed me your very long tongue…
I understand what you mean about horror movies, I guess I’m the same!
I feel like I can guess this one… What is your favourite movie?
No surprises there then!
If you could have any 4 people (dead, alive, real, or fictional) over for a dinner party, who would you invite and why?
That’s a hard one, there’s so many people I’d love to meet, but I’d have to go down the crime route…
Ted Kaczynski, John Wayne Gacy, Harold Shipman, and Jack the Ripper.
I would want to know why they did it and how they got away with it for so long. Also, what lengths they went to to hide their crimes, whether they enjoyed what they did. I think I would also want to know if did ever felt guilty but couldn’t stop?
You could also find out who Jack the Ripper really was! That is a really dark group, but I think it would be really interesting to find out more about their psyche!
Maybe, for the sake of the readers, we should move on to a lighter question.
What is your favourite holiday you’ve ever been on?
Volunteering in Peru for a month. It was so beautiful, fun, and so hot!
It does look amazing from all the photos you’ve sent me for this!
If you could have any superpower what would it be? And what would you do with it?
I would love to be invisible. I’d go to France and find a street mime. Then I’d help them get the best tips of their life by doing things like tripping them, pulling them, or (this is a bit of a weird one) loosely strangling them. It would look like they were the best mime ever!
That poor mime would be so confused! I suppose the tips would make up for it though!
We’re getting close to the end now, only 2 questions left!
If you were given three wishes, what would you wish for? And no you can’t wish for more wishes!
To live a long, happy and healthy life. To always be financially stable, so I never have to worry about paying the bills. My last wish would be to be able to teleport wherever I wanted whenever I wanted, no more flying, or hours in the airport!
Those are pretty good choices! Last question – it should be an easy one!
What is your favourite food?
There are way too many to choose from, but if it has pasta or chorizo in I’ll probably love it!
Thank you so much for all your answers Beth! I feel like I have learnt a lot about you!
