Interview Time

At the moment, every one is getting closer and closer to deciding who they are going to be interviewing. As of now, I’m stuck between two possibilities and it’s been really hard to try to figure out just who I want to interview and write about. My first candidate is a 19-year-old girl named Kiersten who is an advanced intern at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. She spends all of her time at the aquarium behind the scenes taking care of all the marine animals and cleaning their tanks. The thing that really intrigues me about being able to interview Kiersten is her experience and one on one time with Winter the dolphin. I have a couple of questions that I think would be good to be able to ask her and learn some more on what she does. I would ask how she got the chance to take an internship as big as this, and also what her daily duties and responsibilities are. By asking her questions like this, it can help me to put the reader right in her shoes and show them just how cool it can be to take care of the animals at the marine aquarium.

My other candidate is one that I never would have thought to interview, she is none other than what they call a “pirate queen”. If you’re like me, you probably have never even heard of something like this. I got to ask her a couple questions already so that I could better understand what exactly it meant to be a pirate queen. While she sounds like royalty, she actually is part of “Krewe” that does volunteer work throughout central Florida throughout the year. They also take part in Gasparilla and do events and things in Tampa Bay. Every year they elect a pirate king and queen based on how much charity work and money that person has earned for the Krewe’s scholarship program. Based on that, she was elected. I would ask her questions regarding how she got into doing this and what makes her want to continue taking part in this every year.

I believe both of these girls would be good candidates to write a story on. They both do incredible things, and I absolutely cannot wait to see what I learn from them in the near future! I hope you guys can help me choose as well, in the comments, let me know which you’d rather hear about!

  1. Hey Haley!! I love the people you want to interview. I have never heard about a “pirate queen.” So it would be super nice to read your interview and learn more about it. Also, I love animals so if you get the chance to interview the intern at the aquarium that would be super interesting to read as well! Good luck!


  2. I think both candidates have qualities that would be interesting to read, however if you are still stuck on who to decide, try to interview the “Pirate Queen” if possible. With Gasparilla around the corner, you can gain insight on her participation in the event as well as settle any inquiries you may have for her. If not, then interview Keirsten. If you’re feeling up to it, do both lol! I honestly would love to read both stories because on one hand, Gaspy’s huge, and on the other hand, I love reading about animals and how they’re taken care of, especially in aquariums!
