Fun Facts About Lindsay Hill
- What is your favorite quote?
“May today there be peace within… May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us." Teresa of Ávila
- Before working at MSU, what was the most unusual or interesting job you had?
After college, I moved to Trinidad and Tobago with my soon-to-be husband and worked with many children with disabilities both in private schools and homes. I connected with both the Autism Society of TnT and the Cerebral Palsy Association and provided basic speech Language pathology services.
- What is your favorite movie and why?
I am one of those people that loves to rewatch movies over and over; movies like A League of their Own, Dirty Dancing, and Harry Potter. In the days of cable it was fun to watch them whenever they came on TV and while I have embraced the on-demand, Netflix culture, there is nothing quite as satisfying as flipping through channels and finding one of your favorites playing once again.
- What is the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
One of my favorites from a former teacher: "A building is created brick by brick and while you may not be able to build the the whole thing yourself, you can figure out which bricks you can contribute. Without your bricks, the building would be incomplete."
