Introductory Profile: About Ileah Kirkim Rasnick

Ileah Kirkim Rasnick is a 27 year-old woman. She is currently in college. She is a very upbeat, happy, fun-loving woman. Ever since she was a small child her mother called her the pied piper of children because she just always had such an attractive pull from all the kids she was around. She was just naturally good with children even from early beginnings.

When she was in her early twenties, she served in the National Guard. She was in the force for three years. Then got leave from the war because of an ear problem. She went through some pretty traumatic moments in that war, but due to her totally awesome go-with-the-flow personality, she is not any different than before she left, and I am thankful for that.

When in high school, she was a student aid and she was offered to help with the kids in the Special Ed. Program, and she went crazy for it. She absolutely loved it there. She helped them with their homework and with just simple education. And when these kids really learned something, they always remembered it, and to them it was like winning a gold medal in Olympics. It just brought her such great joy, and it was the most rewarding job she ever had.

These things that I have mentioned are what shaped her ways of acting with these kids.
