RMNAAFA Member Spotlight: Michael Cryer

Mike turns 31 this month (April 2002) (HAPPY BIRTHDAY BY THE WAY!!) and lives in Aurora. He has two older sisters who are 42 and 43. His parents have been married for 45 years. He is a Denver native and enjoys the mountains our great state has to offer. His other interest include listening to blues and jazz music, walking, reading, traveling, and playing one of his musical instruments.  He enjoys playing the trombone, the trumpet and the harmonica and plays semiprofessionally when he gets a call. He considers himself to be a very good listener and communicator. We can certainly use more of those in this world!

Previously Mike did computer work for Pacific Care Insurance Company. Currently Mike is a part time business owner in the computer field. His work involves doing computer repairs and building computers for those whom can't afford the cost of pre packages computers. This new venture is keeping him very busy but for those of you that need his services and don't mind waiting you can get a hold of Mike at 720-436-8309.

Late last summer Mike Cryer came to one of our pool parties as a guest of one of our Rocky Mountain NAAFA member and became a member that same day. Mike says that he is glad his friend turned him on to NAAFA and feels any form of discrimination is unnecessary and is glad to see there is a place to fight size discrimination. Mike feels we are just all people under our outward physical body and what that body looks like should not make a difference. How true, no matter what size, shape, color or physical ability we have we are all human. Strip away all that is visible and the essence of our humanity is how we should be appraised. Mike reminds us that everybody's weight will likely fluctuate in life anyway so there is no need to discriminate because of size. He elaborates further that there is already too much division in this world and there is no need to add to it.

Again our membership grows as word is spread from friend to friend. We are glad to have you as a member Michael. Your story of how you found Rocky Mountain NAAFA reminds us that by sharing our experience of Rocky Mountain NAAFA we can enrich others lives as well as enriching our chapter membership.
