Dorm RA Reads A Bedtime Story To A Freshman For His Birthday

It can be hard for some freshmen to adjust to life in the college dorms, because it's the first time most of them have ever lived away from home.

But after they've made friends with their roommates and other students in the dorm they usually start to feel right at home, and when all else fails the Resident Advisors are there to help.

Quamir Boddie is an RA at the University of Tennessee, and last August he asked incoming freshman Andrew Kochamba what he could do to make Andrew's year better.

Andrew replied "read me a bedtime story on my birthday" and so, six months later, Quamir paid Andrew a visit and read him Leo the Late Bloomer by Robert Kraus.

Quamir even read the book upside down so Andrew could see all the pictures, proving Q is the most amazing RA ever:

At the time, I could not have imagined how meaningful this encounter would be; I could not have fathomed the impact it would have on the two of us,” Boddie said. “Andrew was so engaged and interactive as I read to him, and that is all that really mattered to me."
