Well this weeks blog challenge we had to interview one of the graduate students . Which was pretty fun because I've gotten to interview two people . One who was my mentor and the other was an international student . It was so fun/funny because Abigail , my mentor , she was so blunt with her answers and she's just the funniest person ever .
Abigail Cohen is that person I interviewed and she is 26 years old . She has a certification in nano fabrication . She also said , " I like bugs , too . " She has a black belt Ta Kwan Do . Also loves nature . She does a little with photography , she takes pictures of bugs and comes one with nature . Also attended and graduated from Susquenita High School on the day of 06-06-06. Lastly , she is somewhat named after grandfather and also has two younger siblings.
