(Update: I’m pretty sure I found an interviewee, thanks!)
Looking for 85 year-old interviewee
I am looking to interview a person that is at least 85 years old and in well health for one of my Occupational Therapy Master’s program classes at San Jose State University. Do you know someone I might speak to?
The interview will take an hour or two and focus on the breadth of the interviewee’s life thus far. When I say “well health”, I generally mean that they are not having a current serious medical complication.
I believe the interview and the followup could be valuable and enjoyable for both interviewee and interviewer. The interview I did last semester for another project was very enjoyable for all!
All discussions will be held with strict confidentiality. You can contact me at Lee@Lee.org or by phone at 415-306-2151
My resolve to complete my OT Master’s degree has been reinforced. This week I received a grant from the Viola Palmer Memorial Scholarship.
Here is an edited snippet from my Thank you letter:
Grad school takes a lot of focus and I’ve got a lot of things going on in my life: a beautiful 8 month old baby, a new wife, some medical conditions that go along with aging, and a 5 hr daily commute.
The money is important for paying bills but the idea that a stranger would help me get through grad school is revitalizing. It speaks to your confidence in this path and faith in my success. There are times when I am low on confidence and faith; you restore me. Thank you.
