Interviews are one of the most spellbinding methods to get to know someone face-to-face. They can ultimately inspire the interviewer and others to learn more or to follow the footsteps of the interviewee. For my interview, I‘ve met a relative who has always been great to me from when I was little, and that person is my grandfather. There are three justifications on why I chose my grandfather, who is such a fascinating individual, to interview.

One reason why I’ve selected to interview my grandfather is that he was an excellent salesperson. According to my grandad himself, he told me in his interview that he was able to persuade people to trade and make profit off his stock of hardware back when he was young in Libya. His work ethics and persuasive techniques touch my heart because in the mere future, I would hope to become an entrepreneur and convince people to buy my idea and services. Being a salesperson requires someone to be fluent in language and communication skills. Two highly indispensable traits for survivability in this world.

As stated by my grandad himself, “I saw myself as a diplomat working for the Ethiopian government. In the past, and currently today, Ethiopia and Djibouti had never had good relations. So, in retaliation of one another’s hatred, both governments sent out spies to monitor each others activities such as militarily, economically or politically. I was one of the diplomats who were sent by the Ethiopian government to monitor the Djibouti government.” The art of snooping or spying on other governments interests me, due to the fact that I love watching movies that have similar genres to

    When I first heard that I had to interview someone and write a paper about how successful they are, I’ll admit, I thought we’d be interviewing a bunch of wealthy old white guys that never knew the meaning of failure. To my surprise, Josh Mitchell was neither rich nor elderly. After being thrown off I quickly jumped back in and told myself that there must have been a major factor that helped him find an easy path to success. After just a few minutes of speaking with Josh, I realized that his success was not built on money or social status, but alternatively the problems he went through in life. I used to think success was only achieved by being smart and born into a well off family, but after talking to Josh Mitchell, I now…

    I interviewed an adult woman who lives in my neighborhood. Her name is Marina and she is 66 years old always trying to be active but in fact, she has a lot of health issues. She lost her husband 12 years ago and from then on, she lives by herself. So, I decided to invite her for a breakfast on Sunday morning and spent a little bit time together and talk. She responded to my invite with a very enthusiasm and interest. I am assuming it is because in her life there is not happening a lot of interesting events. I know her almost 4 years and I thought I could have guessed somewhat correctly about her interests in music, films, and TV shows.…
