The Fun Finder
The Fun Finder

Hello, my name is Stefan Slowinski but my mom and dad call me the “fun finder.” I think they call me that because everywhere I go I find fun! I am 18 years old and work at AMC theaters three days a week as an usher. I have a lot of responsibilities at my job and I love them all. One of the best parts about working at the movies is that we get to see movies for free! My family gets to go to the movies for free too as long as they take me!

I also have my own business called “Buddy Treats.” I make dog biscuits and sell them at flea markets. I love doing this because I love dogs and I love talking to people. I also love making money!

I do three different sports in Special Olympics. I play basketball, swim and cycle. I also take Tae Qwon Do through our 4-H program. I am doing my first 5K race soon and it is for Special Olympics. I can’t wait. When I am not working or competing in a sport I like to spend time with my girlfriend, my other friends and my family doing just about anything. My life is so much fun; do you see why my family calls me the “fun finder?”
