For this project, I took the time to interview my Nana. I chose her because she is my role model. My Nana is like my best friend. She is always here for me which means I can count on her for anything. It is a privilege to be able to sit and talk with her. I asked her ten questions and the interview lasted about eight minutes. What questions were I most excited to ask? I was eager to ask questions about her husband and life advice. Over the years I have heard little stories here and there about her husband, Freeman.

There is no reason to be sad because we still have the memories and we believe that we will all be together again one day. If I had to do the interview again would I? What would I do differently? What worked well? To answer the first question, yes I would do the interview again. If I did it differently, I would probably ask different questions and talk a little more.
