I put a lot of time thinking about who I wanted to interview for this assignment. Not only did I want to network with other individuals on campus, I also wanted to learn about their everyday experiences.

I had no idea who I would interview, and I was expecting the worse from the actual interview process. I remember feeling nervous emailing my professor, and I felt a bit anxious the day before the interview was conducted. Now that I am reflecting on it, I really enjoyed it and I am even thankful for it. I know it made me more comfortable with my professor, and has made me more likely to approach any of my other professors and teacher assistants for help. From the interview, I also learned a lot about picking the right major. Professor Inda explained that for most Liberal Arts and Science majors, you need to have a strong passion. A lot of research, writing, communication, and dedication has to be put into the work you complete. He also helped me feel more reassured with my current choices of majors, he even recommended me finding out more about dual majors because he believes that Global Studies and Anthropology are closely tied. From the interview process, I learned that I could use it as a template to go to office hours more frequently. When I go, I usually don’t now how to structure my questions, and this usually discourages me from going and I end up asking friends my questions. I know that if I had interviewed a person working in my intended profession, I would’ve gotten a different experiences and I am glad I picked to interview a professor because I feel that I gained a lot more knowledge outside of just my intended

Growing up, my family attended countless historical sites and museums, which taught me to appreciate history at a young age. This appreciation and passion for history was enhanced by one of my high school history teachers, Stephanie Hornstein. She is an exuberant, intelligent and dedicated teacher whose excitement for history is contagious. In her AP United States History class, I was able to develop my critical thinking skills and my passion for being able to study history in greater depth and share that with others. I hope that studying history will provide me with a greater perspective on world and United States events and their impact today on society.
