Class Topic: StoryCorps interview
This holiday season is the first I’ve had without my grandma and she’s the only grandparent I’ve ever really known. So when we had this project to interview and older generation in our family, I was kind of bummed. I interviewed my favorite uncle instead and found out all about his rebellious teenage years. It was fun listening to the interview but the best part was after I finished, my dad and aunt started telling stories about their past and then all my other relatives. Indirectly, this project brought us closer because these are stories and events that shaped my relatives’ lives (and I love listening to them). Even though I wish I could’ve done this with my grandma, her absence just reminds me to be grateful for the people in my life.
