Claire is at the top of her class grade wise and is probably one of the most unworldly girls I’ve gotten to know. I started off my interview asking Claire to define herself. According to Claire, “ I’m smart, thoughtful, not mean to others, very shy until I get to know you, athletic, short, blonde hair, blue eyes, hard headed, and I don’t always do what my parents tell me to do the first time.” It didn’t take long for her to describe herself, and I noticed that throughout this area of the interview she made eye contact and was very confident in her answers.
