Name: Irene Soares

Occupation: cook/truck driver

Age: 50-plus

Hometown: Victoria, moved to Duncan in 1995

If you get a chance go see: Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Right now I am reading: Stephen King’s The Dark Half

I’m listening to: classic rock

At least once everyone should: sit beside the Koksilah River underneath the Kinsol Trestle and look up

Most people don’t know I: was born at home and delivered by my dad

Proudest or happiest moment: when I broke my horse to saddle

Biggest fear: heights

If I was appointed queen of the valley I would: make sure all pets were properly secured in trucks and cars

Before I die: I want to visit the Yukon and go dogsledding

Words I live by: it may take a while, but karma will get you, good or bad
