When one reads Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s “The Interview”, it is very clear how gender roles are predominate within the family that is portrayed. Using this family as an extension to represent all of India, Jhabvala gives us some insight into the daily lives led over there. The story is told through the eyes of an upper-class man who is completely dependent upon his family, specifically his brother and the women in the house. This essay will examine the male and female roles that are presented in this short story, how they parallel each other, and the deeper meanings hidden within the text.
Jennie Hobson is a 7-year-old European American female who attended a school for children with severe developmental disabilities. She was inexpressive within your classroom environment; furthermore, eye contact was a trait she seldom expressed. Customarily, when left alone Jennie demonstrated behavior of sticking out tongue, make strange sounds, and she would wrap her hand around her throat. Jennie has the ability to use crayon and manipulate paper which demonstrated outstanding usage fine motor skills. Jennie physical aggression exemplified her handiness; consequently, within a few seconds she could grab jewelry or eye glasses and throw them to the other side of the room (Kearney, 2012).
I had an interview with Helen Quelch in her office. She has been working as a volunteer engagement manager at National Jewish Health for more than 7 years. Before that, she also had worked at the Denver Hospice as volunteer manager as well for many years. She had a lot of managerial experiences of working in a healthcare field. That is a reason I want to interview her to explore the career in healthcare management.
It is also paramount that I have a professional, open and honest relationship with the parents/carers and it is essential that we are able to communicate with each other.

As Christians, we are to live in such a way that would lead others to Christ. Mother Goodman’s life has been most inspiring, especially to one of her long-time friends.

Stephanie Thompson is the Executive Principal of Farragut High School. When she first started at Farragut High School, she the parents and community stated that they never knew what was going on in the school. Mrs. Thompson’s first priority was to establish ways to connect with the school community. She started by welcoming staff, students and parents every morning not only at the doorway but in the parking lot as well by directing traffic. Some days Stephanie would ask the students about their family or have short conversations about their interests. Her goal was to know her community at a deeper level than what was expected of her.
The judge in this case is the Honorable Linda Storey, who is considered to be difficult and very unpredictable. Although she has been on the bench for a number of years, she has a reputation for making uninformed rulings and for being discourteous to the parties before her court. The jury pool will likely be moderate to conservative.
Barbie Harris is a 50 year old female who came into our shelter this morning looking for assistance. In our initial intake and interview this writer can see that all Barbie has with her some belongs: some clothing, blankets, hygiene products, and her prescriptions, which all fit into a suitcase and backpack. Barbie states that most nights she tries to stay at one of her 3 close friends house, however they have families so she does not stay long and interrupt their lives (Summers, 2012, p. 245). Other than those nights Barbie states she travels from shelter to shelter, at times sleeping on the cold, hard ground. In discussing Barbie’s employment history this writer learns she has been unable to work due to issues with her mental health. Up until
I had the pleasure of interviewing Sabra Springer. Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts I was only able to speak with Michael Montgomery for a short period of time. Sabra and Michael have a blended family. They have been together for a little bit over two years now. Sabra has two daughters, Kylie and Lily, from her previous marriage. In April of 2015 Sabra and Michael welcomed their child, Nate, into the world. The Springer – Montgomery family is of Caucasian decent. The family constellation consists of Michael who is twenty seven, Sabra twenty five, Kylie six, Lily four, and Nate two months. When it comes to birth order among the adults, Sabra is the youngest of three and Michael is the oldest of three. When asked how she would describe Michael she stated that he was “the most caring and ambitious man I
There was nothing that necessarily surprised me, but I will say this interview made me think about a lot of things within my own life. Specifically, the fact that Dr. Wydra did not plan on becoming a psychologist, that life just kind of took her there along with the fact that she stressed making sure that my own mental health always be taken care of and that even when you get B’s in subjects you will still be successful. Like I stated earlier within this paper, I believe people assume college graduates should have their whole lives figured out by the time they walk across the stage, and that is almost impossible. Maria’s story just shows that life can be incredibly unexpected and that regardless of what you end up in, you can be successful.
As a woman who goes to a large university with an abundance of peers who are like me and are looking to enter fields like this, the topic of discussion is heavily important to me for obvious reasons. However, it is also important for the general public to become aware of such under-represenation in such fields because everyone needs to do their fair share of preventing this issue going forward from employers to professors to parents and all the way back to students who will eventually be workers in the STEM industry. Everyone needs to recognize the importance of including more women in these fields in order to make necessary progress occur.
The person who I choose to interview for this paper is my grandmother Sharon Bryant (née Kimple), and the main reason I chose to interview her was that I really did not know much about her life story and wanted to learn more. Currently she is 72 years old, and lives in Vancouver, Washington with her husband of 52 years Allan Bryant. She has been retired for the past two years and enjoys spending her free time quilting and sewing, and does not have any major medical issues aside from a few allergies.
