Speed Interview with Yasmin: Future Doctor and Fish Philosopher.

Yasmin is an Al-Bustan all-star who takes drumming, choir, and art. This is her second year in the program. She’s usually busy hanging out with friends or making beautiful art, but I managed to catch her for a few seconds and the conversation got pretty deep.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A doctor.

What’s your favorite class at school?

Because we actually do tests on computers and learn about websites.

Who’s your favorite teacher?
Mr. Silverman [physical education teacher].

What’s your favorite thing to do at Al-Bustan?
Drawing, because we learn about new [Arab] artists for each project.

What’s something new that you learned recently?
That fish can’t see the water.

What do you mean?
You know how we can’t see air? They can’t see the water.
