Sydney Bus Driver Takes ‘em There with a Smile
Even the busiest rides are pleasant on Kerrin Munn’s bus. His profile is one of 200 “Meet a Scientologist” videos on the Scientology website at www.scientology.org.
“I approach life with open eyes and open arms,” says Scientologist Kerrin Munn, bus driver on one of the most hectic routes in Sydney, Australia.
In a video featured on the new Scientology Video Channel at www.scientology.org, Munn’s warmth and friendliness shine through.
Driving a bus through the morning and evening rush hours—from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.—Munn isn’t satisfied with simply getting his passengers there on time. He greets them with a grin and a kind word no matter how crowded the ride.
“I don’t like to see ‘em unhappy,” says Munn. “So I make ‘em smile before they get off my bus.”
First introduced to Scientology by his father when Munn was a child, in his teens he took a Scientology Communication Course which he says helped him get along better with others. Then he hit a point in his life where things were not going well, and he turned to Scientology to set them right.
“I went through a bad stage there,” says the 30-year-old. “I ran into a few problems at work and it made life pretty unhappy for a while.”
Munn addressed the underlying causes of the stress in his life with Scientology spiritual counseling.
“Everything got a lot brighter,” he says. “Like someone turned a light on. It changed my life—it really did.”
Munn loves motorbikes and trail bikes and hanging out with his girlfriend. And he knows what’s important to him—he lights up when he talks about it.
“It makes your day a lot better, knowing you’ve helped someone,” he says. “Makes it easier to live. Makes every day easier to live.”
