In their own words…
Since we can’t play every clip from every interview, we want to give you a chance to get to know our guests a little more. Here’s a little introduction in their own words!
My name is Madeleine Garn. I live in Tucson, AZ and attend Borton magnet school. I love cats, and spend my spare time reading about them.
I have been inspired to learn when my math teacher taught my class about the fibonacci sequence. It fascinated me, and later on I watched a documentary on it.
I think one of the biggest problems in schools today is the kids getting what they need from lessons. Some kids might be falling behind, or maybe some might be ahead of what is being taught. This could make some students bored and some students unable to complete work.
I’m Izzy Hernandez, and I’m a senior at Cholla High. I love to try new recipes because I love being able to cook for friends and family. I play chess in my free time, because I love how competitive and fun chess is. I like to be involved in my community so I volunteer regularly. In the fall I’ll be attending college in Missouri to study science and math.
Before, I didn’t have a need, and it was an easy A. From this, I learned new studying skills and how to not only retain the information but use it to deconstruct a problem or construct one and solve it. It really opened my eyes and showed me how little regular classes offer students. It inspired me to want to use what I only just learned in the classroom.
I’m a junior at Tucson High. I’m constantly searching for ways to update the nonprofit donation channel and how to best utilize new technology to bring down administration costs to make nonprofits more effective. Right now I’m in the process of launching a business with this goal, and with that of helping nonprofits have better control of their online presence. I’m also talking to for-profit businesses and helping them integrate products with donations to nonprofits without losing profits.
We hope you have as much fun listening as we do creating The Adobe Sessions!
