Sunset Boulevard Fairfax Avenue

I Was the Most Popular Person on the Bus That Day

Stephanie Beuschell

I’m half-blind. I failed the driving test three times, so I had to find the joy in taking the bus. It’s fun. I talk to people. I give them free counseling and I try to help them. My dad and my grandpa were both in the Navy. They raised me to help others, to always volunteer, no matter your age or your condition. I focus on making people smile on the bus, communicating, and being kind. The other day, I was wearing a Pope T-shirt. I was the most popular person on the bus that day. Everyone loves the Pope.
