Brandon - Faces of Somerset

Brandon - 23
Lab Technician at Geochemical Testing

"I have many happy memories. If I had to choose, I would say that some of the happiest were any of the times I spent with my late brother, Jason Schmalz.

I've grown up in Somerset since I was 5. I like that it's a quiet, small town and an all-around pleasant place to live. If I ever want a change of scenery, there are other places to visit within reasonable driving distance at any time.

I feel that the key to happiness is to understand and accept that only you control your happiness. You can't rely on someone or something to make you happy. It all has to start with you. Admittedly, I struggled with this for a long time and only recently came to accept this as the key to happiness."
