Steven Hinds and his daughter Sophia Robins of Montpelier brought laughter to the StoryCorps mobile booth as they shared a wide ranging conversation about what's most important to them.
Sophia was adopted from China and had multiple surgeries to correct a hearing disability. She said she is proudest of learning to speak English, and she says her friends "help me know who I am from the inside - I'm funny, I'm caring and I'm thoughtful."
Their conversation was one of dozens recorded during August while the StoryCorps mobile booth was at the Echo Center in Burlington. StoryCorps is a national initiative to record and collect stories of everyday people. Excerpts were selected and produced by VPR.
