Tenisha Dotstry

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
Serve. As a Navy veteran, I look back on the time that I served my country with pride and humility. As a Navy Spouse, I am happy to support those who serve our country and their families in a volunteer capacity whenever I can.

2.How would you describe your husband?
I love Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations on the Travel Channel. I am a great lover of travel and exotic cuisines, so it's great to watch a show that introduces me to different cultures and flavors of the world without the hassle of jet lag.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
As much as I love cooking, I don't like the dirty dishes that result from my efforts. I will wait until the sink is completely full before I even consider washing them. It's definitely my worst habit, and one that I battle with every day.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
My favorite saying is by Mahatma Ghandi, "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." In serving others, you are giving of yourself unconditionally without judgement. In my mind, that is when you are your truest self.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
My favorite day of the week is any day that my husband is home. He has a hectic schedule being stationed on a submarine, so whenever he is not deployed and gets to come home at the end of the day is my favorite day, hands down!
