Feats and Major Accomplishments

I have conducted interviews with the wives of former Presidents Ulysses S. Grant, James Garfield, James K. Polk, and Buffalo Bill himself. I exposed the terrible conditions of the Black Wald Insane Asylum.

Black Wald Insane Asylum

As I mentioned befor,e I exposed the terrible conditions of the asylum. I acted out as an insane person. The asylum had force-fed us rancid butter, the staff physically and mentally abused us, the asylum staff were feeding the inmates vermin-infested food.

Civil Involvements and Other Contributions

I contributed and associated myself as a social activist. I devoted my time to helping the poor, and organized homes for abandoned children to live in.

People of Interest

Many of my former bosses and people that I interviewed had evaluated my skills thoroughly. Both of my former bosses, Joseph Pulitzer and George Madden, had encouraged me to find better jobs. Buffalo Bill and the wife of Ulysses S. Grant benefitted first-hand from my interview skills.
