Face Time with John Ladeur

St. Charles resident John Ladeur, 22, was at the Batavia Public Library when he answered 10 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.

Where did you grow up? Wheaton

Pets? I share a standard poodle named Tess with my brother.

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Woody Harrelson because I think I’m going to look like him in 15 years.

First job? Stocking produce at the Blue Goose in St. Charles

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I believe when I was in kindergarten, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer. That has not worked out. But throughout my schooling, I wanted to work in direct care, and I am trained to be a physical therapy assistant.

A book you’d recommend? “How to See Yourself As You Really Are” by Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th dalai lama

Favorite charity? Save the Children

Hobbies? Exercise, meditate and read. I sing. My brother plays guitar, and we both sing, sometimes a duet.

Favorite local restaurant? El Molcajete in Geneva

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I am a fraternal twin, born a minute after my brother. I ran the 2010 Chicago Marathon in four and a half hours and vowed never to do it again. It was really hot... I felt lucky I was able to finish.
