Interview with A Friend
When thinking of people I could possibly interview, and then deciding that most of them wouldn’t be very interesting, I decided to interview a friend of mine. N.H. At first glance he seems like any other 15 year old but once you get to know him, you’ll soon realize that, that isn’t the case.
Firstly he’s moved around and experienced more things then most people his age, even most people in general, and has developed a unique personality because of this. N. was born in 1985, in Finland but moved shortly afterwards to England and then again moved after only a few years to Malawi in Africa.

Seeing as both his mum and dad had to work, N. was sent to a boarding school which he despised. “It was the worst time of my life, I simply did not like it,” while shaking his head, but then he looks up and starts smiling, “I did have a few good times with some friends I had made there, like this one time we were playing softball and I whacked the ball into a window. We all blamed this one Irish guy that we all hated.” He had a smirk on his face while he said that, but it wasn’t always like that. “One thing I do regret though, was that I was a push over. Looking back, I could’ve been a lot more assertive instead of taking the piss like I usually did back then.” Fortunately, N. isn’t like that anymore. As I’m interviewing him, it’s obvious he has a strong self-confidence.
Once again, N. moved with his parents but this time it was to Denmark. He’s been living In Copenhagen for the past 5 years and says he enjoys the “freedom” he’s never had. “Growing up in places like Africa and then going to a boarding school in England, you were never allowed to just go into town when ever you wanted to.

I interview my friend, Tim F. Mr. F was born on January 08, 1976 Cleveland, Ohio to M. J. and J. F. Mr. F. prefers to be addressed as Tim. He is mixed, Tim’s mother is mixed with black and white and his father is black. His dad left them when he was twelve years old but still came around every now and again. She remarried when he was eighteen. He is an African American male at the age of twenty-eight. He came from a middle class family, but his had more money than she leaded him believe.

That was the last straw for her, Mr. F elaborate on how he tried to explained, and tell what all was said but she did not want to hear it. She gave him a serve whipping and locked him in his bedroom with only his bed to sleep in. No T.V., phone and games, nothing that he could or would enjoy for some time playing with. That is when he felt that the only person at the time he could ever trust betrayed him. That why he spoils Nicole, because he wants her to have a better life than he did. But many times Nicole will ask for something and her father knows she does not need it but he will give it to her anyway. Nicole knows that her father is a push over and personally that is why I

Mr. F likes to make up excuses on why Nicole needs unnecessary items. Once when going to the store, Nicole wanted a very large pack of gum and I looked at him as if she did not need it and he replied “it keeps her quiet at home.” Nicole has enough things at home to keep her quiet, but it is like he just can not say no to her. Nicole knows when she is with me; it is a limit on what she can get. And if and when she gets an attitude she knows I will put her back in her place quick and fast. Mr. F knows how I am about how he spoils Nicole.
