My name is Samantha Hendrick, I am 25 years old,
And I work in Teva Pharmaceuticals, Ireland.
In our place in Waterford we make inhalers, To help people with asthma.
I have worked here for over three years now, It's a great place to work.

I have asthma from as long as I can remember, I've always had it.
My asthma has varied greatly throughout my life so far
My name is Cróna Tansey,
I am 30 years old,
I live in Ireland with my fiancé and our golden Labrador retriever Ted.
I am a primary school teacher,
And this year I am teaching in special ed.
As part of my work in school, I set up an asthma group for the children.
And one of the main motivations for me to do that, was so that I could teach the children that asthma doesn't have to hold you back, or stop you from doing the things that you enjoy.
With the right asthma plan, you can do everything that you want to do.
She is really active.
I just want to say a huge thank you to you,
For everything you do for us,
And I'm so glad that I have this opportunity to share the difference that this makes in my life and a huge impact that you've made in my life
It is such a hugely important and special job that you do,
And thank you so much

You know, you kind of forget, when you come in to the QC lab every day,
You're just testing away, and
You know, you forget that the products that we are making and testing every day,
are going out to customers,
So it's just, it's nice to see someone talking about it,
And bringing it home.
I come to work every day, and I'm really proud of what I do,
And I am reminded of all that now,
That I've seen the video
and doing this today, like, it's made me even prouder.
You know, seeing someone in real life,
that uses our products,
Especially even in Ireland, where we are from,
it's just, it's beautiful to see.
I do have a message for Cróna.
I just want to say thank you for making the video,
And thank you for trusting us,
with our high-quality products
Hopefully you live a long, long life full of excitement and joy
