Episode 8: Therese

In 1997, Social Psychology Researcher Arthur Aron conducted a study on human connection.

Almost 20 years later it became popularized as The 36 Questions That Lead To Love.

So here in Milwaukee, we chose 8 strangers from two of our longest streets to answer these questions — on camera.

It’s time to meet your neighbor, and maybe even love them too.

My perfect day would be when you wake up in the morning, and you know where your kids are.

You know everybody's safe.

Therese owns and operates a furniture import business, which requires frequent travel to China.

Her furniture warehouse is in Riverwest, coincidentally the same warehouse Yollande (Episode 4) operated out of when she started her restaurant.

Therese is working hard to maintain a positive and healthy outlook after recently being diagnosed with cancer.  She is the mother of four Milwaukee Public School graduates.

Now, get to know Therese even deeper by listening to the audio story below.

She shares her entire life story, in less than four minutes.
