The person I chose to interview was my dad. During the interview I learned some new things that I deem important. My dad talked about hard work and how someone could have so much going for them but be lazy, so in the end it means nothing. Hard work is one of the most important things and people undermine or estimate its importance. When shopping for a winter jacket or even just with friends, quality always trumps quantity, the same goes for organizations. No matter how much you have of a certain thing, it will not have any value if the quality is not the best. Even if there are sacrifices needed to get a good product, friend, or charity, it will be worth it all. Lastly, my dad talked about giving back and how important it really is to give. I have always known donating money or time was important, but even giving back to friends or peers around me is key. By the end of the interview, I had a better understanding of my father. Money has never meant anything to my dad, he holds family and friends before any materialistic object which I believe is important. I also learned that my dad gives back more than I thought. I always knew he gave back to the community but I never knew the lengths he’d gone or how many charities he’s help. I don’t really think I was changed by the interview, but I do think I learned a few things about my dad and money.
