His name is Hubert and he is Polish. Blonde haired and blue eyed, he sits behind me in English class; and although at first glance he seems a very quiet individual, he’s anything but that. He’s been at UCC for about 3 years, on and off as he’s taken a break in between semesters. The reason being that he works both part-time and full-time, one of the biggest obstacles he’s had to face. A feat even I’m astonished with because my mother is now also going to school. When I asked why he’s going to UCC to he said he wanted become an accountant because “…it makes money and you get weekends off.” In five years he sees himself doing just that, “making lots of money”. I asked, who helped you the most, “My girlfriend,” he adds with a slight smile. When he described how she helped him get back on track with school I can tell there was a deep bond, and one he would always be grateful for. And although she was always there for him, there isn’t really anyone he admires. He claims that it doesn’t matter how much you admire someone you can never really be them. You always have to be yourself even in your darkest moments. Hubert, is a prime example of the statement “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” Before I got to interview he was just another quiet classmate, and now he’s a growing acquaintance and someone I’ll be sure to get know even better.
