Soundbites From Cameron:
“My job is to be a host and give them a place for their voices. I see myself as a host and my job is to make sure everyone feels welcome.”
“Sometimes I’ll post something and get zero responses and you just have to not worry about it. Realize that people are busy in their lives. It’s not always someone’s job to sit around and like your posts. And then, sometimes posts will get 60 likes.”
