What I hope to accomplish in my roadtrip nation project is to get a better understanding of whom I am as a person and what career will better fit me. I am looking for someone to inspire me to reach my dreams just as they did. I am hoping for someone to tell me the pros and cons of their job and how would the career benefit me. By the end of my project, I would like to be able to be confident in the career/major that I choose. I am hoping that the people I interview give me a lifelong lesson...

Phone Calls Yikes
I was terrified when I had to call people and ask them for an interview. My mind was racing and I was extemely nervous. Some how I finally got the courage to pick up the phone and make my first call. I was so nervous that my voice was shaking and I stumble over a couple of words. After I finally got my purpose out for calling them and asking for a interview I finally calm down. Thankfully they said yes. I ask the second person that I'm going to interview in person. I still was exreamely nervous, but I think that it went better the second time because It was my teacher and also because I was more prepared on what to say. My advice would be think of the them like you think of yourself "human". The worst thing they can say is no. So make the call its worth it!
