This interview took place downstairs in the lobby of P.U.L.S.E. High School in front of the security desk on the 1st floor. It was just her and me.  The person I Interviewed was Ms.Garcia who is a security guard at P.U.L.S.E. High School. One of thing she talked about was education.

“I didn’t have no father no mother. My grandmother was there for me.”

Hearing this quote made me realize that I myself didn’t have my parents to be there for me. They always looked down on me, always said that I would be a failure. When you don’t have your parents to motivate you, it’s hard to focus. That’s why you find someone who would be there for you. Ms. Garcia’s grandmother was there for her just like how my boyfriend is there for me. She didn’t let her parents not being there interfere with her education.

Another quote that stuck out to me from interviewing Ms. Garcia at P.U.L.S.E. High School was how Ms. Garcia on May 1st, 2017 said:

“It gives you an advance. It makes you fulfill your goals. When you study hard, you achieve everything you’re looking for.”

Seeing this quote again, I see how what are people’s opinions on education and how it was like for them back then compared to now. It opens my eyes because this quote is saying that education means taking whatever knowledge you learn and take advantage of it. If there are other open opportunities, take them because as you grow older, you see everything you study for pays off. When you achieve your goal, your hard work pays off. Education is the key to your future. You have to be educated to get through this life. Now keeping in mind that I did agree with Ms. Garcia when she explained what education meant to her.
