I met with Warren today to go over the story. I was really nervous. I was worried that he would be offended if I got a fact wrong or misinterpreted something he said. I met him in the Veteran’s Resource Center, which was cool because he was a big advocate of the VRC in our interviews. We went into a small room and I handed him the paper. The room got quiet as he took the paper clip off the story and began to read. I tried not to stare too hard as I attempted to read his expressions to see if he was pleased or upset. I had gotten a few details wrong, but they were easily fixed. He told me he liked it. I was so relieved. I worked hard on his story, but I was happy that Warren saw it in the paper. 

This class was a lot of hard work, but I’m glad I took it. I’m walking away with valuable skills that I might not have gotten anywhere else. I learned to keep asking questions; I wouldn’t have learned some of the things that I put into the final story if I had just accepted Warren’s first answer and not followed up. That’s how I got the first anecdote that begins the story. I asked him to tell me about something he told me in our first interview, but he ended up telling me this really great story. The skills I learned in recording and creating podcasts really intrigued me and I hope I get the chance to use them in my future.
