This is our last interview for 2017-18! I hope you enjoyed the weird journey that is the after-school program. I finally had a few seconds to touch base with Ghadeer, a second-grader who likes to pretend she is evil but is actually very sweet, especially with her little brother. She’s incredibly smart and funny, check out our conversation:
Today is the last day of the program. How do you feel?
I mean I like the program but I get out at 5 and I can’t go to the mall!
You don’t feel sad at all?
… I will miss y’all.
What did you think you did best in the program?
Drumming. I beat everyone.
There are no winners in drumming! What do you mean?
I won. I won the whole semester. And the year.
Okay… Are you excited for the summer?
BECAUSE IT’S SUMMER DA-DA, DA-DA DA-DA.
Anything cool you’re doing?
I’m going to Paris, London, Florida and South Carolina!
What are your dreams?
To help animals. First, I was gonna be a model. Then, a doctor. THEN, I was going to be an astronaut but you can die from that so I’m good.
Right. Any last words you want to say to me?
Um. Have a good summer.
This concludes my speed interviews with the students of the Moffet Arab Arts After-School Program 2017-18! I hope you enjoyed reading these as much as I loved writing them. These students were so fun to work with.
Have a great summer! See you back in the fall for a whole new round of student leader interviews.
