1. Beth Roberts, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I know very little about my past before the age of four. I have hazy memories that are starting to return, but I’m not yet sure what they mean, or why I was abandoned as a child.

2. What do you do for fun?

I love to sketch and draw scenery, people, buildings, and more. Sometimes I draw things that I see in my dreams or memories that I don’t understand. Art brings me a peace and calm that I don’t find many other places.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?

Going where there are crowds of people. I have some scars that worry me, and I’m never sure if I’ll be accepted or not. I truly prefer being with people I know, or being alone.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Learning the truth about my parents. Why was I found alone along the Oregon Trail as a toddler? At times I desperately want to know, and at others, I hope I never find out.

5. What do you want out of life?

To be loved and accepted for who I am in spite of my flaws, my scars, and my uncertain past. I hope that someday I’ll find a man who will love me just the way I am.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Family. I love my Aunt Wilma who took me when I was found years ago. Someday I hope to discover who my family was and where they might be now—to reconnect and learn what happened.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?

I’m passionate about reading! I recently finished Ivanhoe, Sense and Sensibility, and Robinson Crusoe.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I’m actually not a shy person, but I come across that way sometimes because I’m afraid to let people get too close. I’d like to let go of some of my insecurities and let my true personality shine.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

No, before my aunt and I moved to Baker City, Oregon, I was in boarding school, then home for a year. I didn’t have time for a pet

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I’d travel back to the day I was found beside the Oregon Trail and find out what happened. That day haunts me, as I still carry the scars from injuries I sustained. Someday I hope to understand what happened and why.
