On September of 2016, I did an oral interview with Vanna Moore about her military past and Vanna’s ties to Texas. Over the whole interview, I asked her questions about her experience in Afghanistan and how it shaped her views of her state of Texas. Through her interview, Vanna touched on her feelings about Texas, the military, American culture, and life after military. At times, she seemed comfortable and at ease sharing her thoughts, and other moments seemed more difficult to get through. This interview helped me to understand that military service can really shape a person’s world view, both abroad and at home. Additionally, after this oral interview experience I feel like I know how to effectively use oral histories in my future classrooms.

Holly has lived in Ohio but is mostly in Bowling Green, she has moved to Sandusky once then moved back to Bowling Green. A school Holly attended was Crim Elementary School.

On April 9th, 2018, I interviewed Yolanda Miller, a friend of my aunt’s. Yolanda is originally from Colombia and now resides in Lake Zurich. One reading that can used to help discuss Yolanda’s experience as a Latinx person is The US Census Bureau and the Making of Hispanic Data. Another aspect I plan to talk about is the populations of the city of Chicago and its suburbs, using Magical Urbanism. Finally, I will compare the experiences of her daughters schooling to the experiences discussed in Education in the New Latino Diaspora. Living in a suburb differs from living in a designated ethnic area due to differences in demographics.
NO the question you should be asking yourself is why the hell have you done nothing to fix this issue, the things that have been happening to others because of many people discriminating them for how they look, for how they talk, for who they choose to be in life. In the 1960s this woman called Katherine Johnson was one of the first African American woman to work for Nasa, she worked as a Mathematician calculating the trajectories for many NASA missions and working with many people in this project which in many cases was hard for her 1. Her being a woman and 2. Her being African American, now these shouldn't be any reasons for her to fail or not be able to do it (right), well in her case it wasn't, it was the fact that many people doubted her, made fun fun of her skin color, and most of all her being equal to a man really made her get laughed at because everyone thought that she can’t do it, how can a woman be with such a high authority and equal with a man working for NASA, although many people did not agree with what she did however, with her working there for 33 years taking all the discrimination words she heard, brought eather to her face or in secret she toughened up and realized no matter how many things they say about me I will keep on going, she later on started proving everyone that she can do it she started solving various complex equations and multiple plans on what types of angles the ships should be held from, what speed to blast
My story isn't quite special really, although I have lived under some unique circumstances. My mother was a single parent raising my little sister and I until she married my Stepdad in 2007. I was five at the time and had no father figure until then. From that time on he became my dad. Our new family moved twice before living in a small city where we stayed for 6 years. This is where I made close friends, achieved academic excellence, went to church regularly, life was great or so I thought. What seemed to be our perfect life was turned upside down as hard times fell upon us. I was now the oldest of five younger siblings, my mom wasn't healthy, and my dad had to struggle to keep things going.
After high school, she left her hometown of Durango, a place she called “a wonderful place to grow up,” in order to fuel that spark. She earned her undergraduate degree in Biology and Athletic Training from Adams State College before continuing on to Physical Therapy school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver.
On September of 2016, I did an oral interview with Vanna Moore about her military past and Vanna’s ties to Texas. Over the whole interview I asked her questions about her experience in Afghanistan and along the way I asked her questions about Texas. To the best of my knowledge Vanna answered “who are these people, these Texans”, what do Texans tell us about America, and what she thought of Texas. We talked about how her military experience shaped her conceptions of Texas. In a setting such as this one and her experiences combined she had moments where she seemed more comfortable and opened, and other moments that were difficult to get through. After this oral interview experience I feel as though I know how I could use oral histories in my classroom.

Like many people I went through high school with the same group of friends from middle school. We were all extremely close and acted like family. Upon graduating, we all realized that we wouldn’t see each other as much, especially the people that went to LSU, ULL and Emory and even LA Tech. We had lost those close-knits relationships we formed for over 7 years. Many people would be upset over this but it showed me who my real friends were and they are my new-found sisters in the sorority I joined and my best friend from sixth grade.
