Get to know Heidi Fehr

Meet our newest intern Heidi!!

1. Do you have allergies/asthma/eczema/immune disease?

I am allergic to Shellfish, as well as Cefzil which is an antibiotic. Growing up, my brother had severe asthma, and autoimmune diseases run in my family. This sparked interest in me to learn more about how to properly manage allergies and asthma, and to help the people around me who felt this disrupted their everyday life.

2. Why did you choose to be a part of The Itch Podcast?

People in my family suffer from asthma, and autoimmune diseases and I’ve always been interested in learning more about the problems that they deal with on a daily basis. The Itch has allowed me to learn more about asthma, allergies, and the immune system.

3. What’s your day job?

I am currently a Senior at St. John’s University and work as a waitress part time at a local restaurant.

4. You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

I would be a light shade of blue, because It has the potential to be subtle, yet vibrant. Calming, yet bold, depending on where the blue is.

5. What is something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

I love to write, and nothing beats a handwritten letter. It feels more personal than just a message through a computer or phone.

6. What do you bring with you everywhere you go?

I bring my journal everywhere, and journal every day. I love to write, and it’s a great to have all my thoughts in one place. 

7. What is your favorite karaoke song?

Picture by Kid Rock ft. Sheryl Crow, and of course I need a duet partner for it!

Anything with peanut butter! Apples and peanut butter are the best duo.
