Semi-Structured Interview

Ladies and Gentlemen, I want you to meet Tara Kiley:

       In my interview with Tara I learned a lot about her. I discovered about her hobbies and some of her greatest accomplishments. I learned some strange, irrelevant information about her but it shows a lot about who she is as a person and her aspirations in life.

      When I asked a leading question about her guilty pleasure song, she stated, "Boom Clap because because its a really upbeat and happy song". She enjoys eating at Wendy's because its like gourmet food and its better than some of the other fast food restaurants. Her favorite hobby is to play volleyball. She enjoys volleyball because " you have to show sportsmanship  and be a team". Dance was a major aspect of her life, " My greatest accomplishment", Tara exclaimed, " would have to be when I made it to the top level of dance before I quit last year".

     Tara said that her happy place is on the beach in New Hampshire. She later explained that the beach is Lake Ossipee in New Hampshire. She loves how there is so much to do when she is there. She plays tennis, basketball, volleyball, and mini golf. The calm atmosphere that surrounds the Lake is what she enjoys the most. It is peaceful and a great place to be. We also discussed children in her future. " I would want a boy first", Tara stated, " then a girl, so he could defend his little sister". Tara enjoys her weekends just as another person would. "On Saturdays", Tara says," I normally hang out with friends". " On Sundays, I go to Church, then I do homework. After homework, I sometimes will hang out with friends or I will relax". She had many opinions on her favorite type of car: " Trucks", she stated, " Ford Trucks or Range Rovers". " Those are my two favorites".  This is some of the information that Tara Kiley shared with during our semi-structured interview.
