Dagny and I got some time to know each other the past few days by email and texting back and forth, we started talking about many themes about each other and who we were as college students. Dangy was born in New York but she grew up in Georgia. She is a senior at Milton high school furthermore in her high school she participated heavily in theatre for 2 years as well as she was in Milton’s cirque program.
When I asked what her career goal was, she said that she wanted to be a zoologist/animal behaviorist, therefore I asked what was her inspiration/influence. Her response was that professionally her biggest influence in the zoology field is Steve Irwin. But in her personal life was her grandma. She is often very busy during the majority of the days but even if she is busy she finds time to do her schoolwork. Her determination and her passion about her goal and dreams is so high that you can even imagine what she is capable of doing when she decides to pursue her goals.
When we were doing the interview I asked her what was her biggest struggle in an educational environment, she said that her struggle is that she has a hard time asking the teacher’s for help and communicating with her peers. After she told me that I asked her if she thinks this problem can affect her goals or dreams, she responded that she is trying to improve herself in school and outside of school. This shows me that even though she is having trouble, her determination is bigger than her trouble, and thanks to that she makes me realize that I am not doing my best during this past year and that I need to improve myself no matter what trouble I have in the future or now.
After learning about Dagny, I understood that determination and passion can get you to your dreams. even if you have trouble or you don’t have time, Dagny is able to see her problem and try to overcome the problem no matter what the problem is. Even though people think that young people can be impulsive or that they are reckless just because they are young and they don’t think of the consequence. I believe that Dagny has a very clear goal that she wants to accomplish no matter what her obstacles are.
