This season, Tomorrow’s World Today is excited to welcome Darieth Chisolm as our newest field reporter. We played 20 Questions with Darieth so our viewers could get to know the newest addition to the team.

1. Tell us about your hometown. 

I grew up in Detroit, Mi. We moved 15 times before I was 14 years old. Seems almost impossible right? Nope, true story. The strange thing is, nothing about that seemed estranged or different. My mother took exceptional care of me and my siblings. Back in those days, we had vibrant neighborhoods, the swim mobile on our city blocks was the highlight of summer and the fall would bring the bookmobile and a chance to pick out a favorite book. I miss “the D”, so much so…I’m heading back home. And this time, I hope it’s my final move. 

2. Describe yourself in five words.

Resilient, courageous, warm, talented, easy-going.

3. What five words would your closest friends use to describe you?

They say I’m direct, fearless, a dreamer, supportive and loving. 

4. What do you think about when you’re alone in your car? 

I love long road trips, with no music playing in the background; I do my best brainstorming then. I think about my son and how proud I am of him, try to solve the world’s problems and then I think, ”Nope, that’s too much to think about,” and I instead dream about ways to better serve my coaching clients.

5. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? 

An owl because owls are wise, majestic and calm.
