February 27, 2010
By Mathan_Ratinam

My ride-along was on Friday 19th Feb, from 6am-2pm.

My Discovery with Red Cross

Past I was going through some old files on my hard disk, when I came across my first professional resume. I created this in 2003.

Scott really wasn’t kidding when he said that the demographic ranged from all ages to all races to all classes. The people I talked to were were genuine New Yorkers, a few however had...
