Once I had yoked in my excitement and calmed myself down, it was time for my interview with Education Pioneers! My conversation with representative Dawn Gehrung consisted of eleven very interesting (and sometimes challenging!) questions. These included one about career goals (the hardest for me to narrow down), one about my favorite and least favorite coursework responsibilities (also tough because all my classes are my favorite), and one about what "proactive initiative" means to me. The organization will contact me within a week letting me know if I make the "first cut," at which time I would be invited in for a face-to-face interview. My plan is to work with Sasha Bruce Youthwork until I hear from Education Pioneers, at which point I may decide to work (part-time) for both, if the latter offers me a position.
Feeling a bit weak, I settled on the couch to watch Snow White on TV. Suddenly, my piano caught my eye! I spent the better part of an hour playing around (trying to arrange a sophisticated piece to a level appropriate for my piano skill or lack thereof), and came up with the following result -- I hope you like it!
Exhausted after this recording session, I hopped in bed for a quick nap, after which I again talked with Henry, this time reading a draft of his college essay and making some recommendations to him. I wish him all the best, and hope we get to go to school together next year!
A trip to Target with Mama and the evening came to a satisfying close. I eagerly await my first day at Sasha Bruce tomorrow!
