This week I interviewed Chelien, a freshman in the pre-nursing program. She’s about 3/4 of the way through her first semester at CSULB and she says it’s kind of like high school so far. Her reasons for choosing nursing are that she can contribute something to society and help others. She also mentioned that it’s a career path that will support her financially and is supported by her parents.
Then I asked what she likes to do outside of school. In her free time she likes to watch the news or read blogs to keep herself updated with the world around her. She also likes to draw and hang out with her family. From talking to her, I gathered that family was very important to her.
We eventually started talking about art and the class. While I told her I was enjoying the class, she mentioned that she wasn’t crazy about it. It apparently wasn’t the art class she was expecting and would have preferred the traditional style of art class. Also she said she also wasn’t a fan of doing the writings when she wasn’t necessarily interested in all the subject matter. I don’t think that topics were all that uninteresting so we agreed to disagree.
