    “My older brother and I, we’re super close. He looks intimidating, but he’s a teddy bear – super charismatic, very outgoing, and the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. One of my favorite memories with him is when we were kids and opened a pizza stand – like a lemonade stand but a pizza stand. We discovered the toaster oven, and we were so fascinated with it. We were making pita pizzas for ourselves all the time, and we were like, ‘Oh my gosh, we need to make a million of these.’ So he made a logo, and we would just sit out there with our little makeshift cash register out of a plastic crayon box. People would come from the neighborhood – kids and parents with their kids – they’d place orders, and one of us would run inside and make the pizza and come back out. We did it for like a month out of the summer – it was the best.

    When you’re a teenager and the smallest things feel like the biggest things, I would go to him with those, and he wouldn’t invalidate me. He would just talk to me about them. Now, he chills me out and calms me down. I would be a super high-strung person if he did not exist in this world. I can always go to him with the most irrational thoughts, and he’s always like, ‘Amy, it’s ok.’ He helps me realize that in the bigger scheme of things, those things don’t matter.”
