Gianny, Program Assistant and the best drummer in class (also good at math).

We’ve been busy at the Moffet Arab Arts After-School Program. The students are rehearsing to perform at an awards show at Temple University, hosted by Interfaith Center, and getting their artwork ready for their exhibition at Circle of Hope in May!

I finally got a second to talk with Gianny, one of Al-Bustan’s program assistants at Moffet. Gianny is responsible, smart, and ready to call you out! These qualities make her the perfect program assistant. Find out more about her below:

What are you best at during the after-school program? 
I am the best drummer.

What do you do when you’re drumming? 
I help the class. Whenever we take a break, I help get the kids ready with the hand positions. Some kids don’t know part of the song. I help them like… know it. We go slowly.

What do you like best about this program?
I get to drum and do everything with my friends.

Do you like being a leader?
Yeah.

What do you like about being a leader? 

You get to teach people how to do new things.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
MATH TEACHER!

Great! What grade? 
Wait. NO. DON’T SAY THAT. I DON’T WANT TO BE A MATH TEACHER.

Yes, you do…you like math. What grade? 
FINE, HIGH SCHOOL! I ALREADY SAID!

Okay, thank you!
LET ME SEE THE INTERVIEW.

Join us next time for more insightful interviews with Moffet’s multi-talented students!
