ALTER EGOS I usually feel like two different people from work to home. This is how most people feel when they are working. An alter-ego is a second self, a second personality or persona within a person. 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, My name is Stephanie Demarest.
