For the first article in this semester I had the great fortune to interview Cheryl Wong, one of Concordia’s finest students. Cheryl is one of the most approachable and fun students to have a conversation with. Her ever present positive attitude rubs off on everyone that she speaks with. This interview definitely reflects the Cheryl charm she exudes!
Peter Fourlaris: “What program are you in right now?”
Cheryl Wong: “The program I am in right now is fine arts here at Concordia University College of Alberta.”
PF: “What year of your program are you in?”
CW: “I’m in year 4 and this is my final year.”
PF: “What is your favorite part of being a student at Concordia?”
CW: “Wow, There are so many favorites, well a couple of my favorite parts in Concordia is watching theatre plays one acts and to do fun charity and join praise chapel.”
PF: “What attracted you to Concordia? Has the decision to go to Concordia impacted your life in any way at all”
CW: “Well, one of the great things that had attracted me to Concordia was knowing that I could become me feeling much [more] confident and [become] a better person.”
PF: “What would you say your favorite hobby away from school is?”
CW: “I think that one of my favorite hobbies is listening to music.”
PF: “As of today, what do you think your favorite movie right now is?”
CW: “My favorite movie right now is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”
PF: “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?”
CW: “If I could [have] any super power, I guess that would be I can fly. If I could fly it would be easy to be on my way really early everywhere I go, same with super speed. But also, being super strong, cute, and sweet, and having awesome powers to fight or be invisible would be good too. This way I could be invincible and [in] a super everyday role.”
PF: “What advice do you have for students entering their first year?”
CW: “I guess I have a lot of advice for the freshman, especially two parts of advice for them: “Always smile, you never know who needs it” and “whatever follows I [will] come looking for you.”
Thank you very much Cheryl, especially for the great advice that you have for first year students. I hope you have a great final semester in your last year, and that graduation and beyond can be very rewarding for you in your life.
