M Y A LT E R E G O I usuall y feel like t wo dif fer ent people fr om wor k to home. T his is how mos t people feel w hen they ar e wor k ing. A n alter-ego is a second self, a second per sonalit y or per sona w ithin a per son. My name is Stephanie Demarest. I work at Big Rapids City Hall when I’m not in classes. Though my past three years I have had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of people. They have grown to become a part of my family. From time to time my group of coworkers get together outside work. It is then I have really got to see what each of their personalities are when they are not in work. In some more then others I realized they almost posses an alter ego. This spread is a collective gathering of some of the faces I work with and who their alter egos are. They explain what it is like having these two different personalities and how they conflict and compliment each other and other things,
