Name: Sam Bode
Where do you call home? North Branford, CT
Education: I have a bachelor of science in communications with a specialization in video production.
What is your relationship status? I am a single transgender male. I live at home with my sister, Alex and mom. We have learned how to live together as three respectful adults. A lot of people seem to think there is something wrong with living at home with my family, but our house is always fun with people around at all times of the day.
What's a typical day for you? A typical day for me would be to get up early and get ready for work. I work in my old high school as an administrative assistant. I am responsible for directing people who visit the school, as well as some security (no I don’t carry a gun, which is not advised for someone with FA:). I also mentor some of the students and help out teachers. After work every day I have someone work out with me.
How long have you known you are living with FA? I was diagnosed when I was 8 years old, on April 13, 1995.
Are there any others with FA in your family? Yes, my younger sister Alex has FA.
