For this week’s interview, I chatted with an Audubon alumni who graduated in 2016, who is in her third year of college, and who moved all the way down the East Coast after graduation. This person is none other than Serena Manzi, a future Marine Biologist from Audubon, New Jersey. Serena is my go-to person when I need some hand-me-downs and a good laugh, and she is one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. Our interview was more of a casual conversation, and here’s how it went:

 

Sandy: Hi Serena, I have some cheesy and casual questions for The Parrot if you don’t mind me asking you them.

Serena: Yes of course, I’d love to!

Sandy: Awesome. Let me start by asking you where you live now?

Serena: I live in Lakeland, Florida.

Sandy: Wow, I’m jealous. I know you’re in college, so which college are you attending and what major?

Serena: I’m going to Florida Southern College and my major is Marine Biology with a minor in Environmental Science.

Sandy: Ooo fancy, that’s impressive. What year did you graduate from AHS? And how would you say your life has changed since you graduated?

Serena: I graduated in 2016, and I’m going to graduate college in Spring 2020. I’ve become a lot more independent and I”ve been able to find what I really want to do. I’ve been able to connect with people from all around the world and make a bunch of new friends that are going to last a lifetime. I’ve also realized what I’m going to do after graduation and I’m so excited to be able to bring all that I’ve learned out to the world!

Sandy: That’s so cool, I can’t wait to have that feeling, too. Speaking of your friends, do you have the same friends that you had in high school?

Serena: Yes, actually. We’ve kept in touch and we still have the same groupchat from high school! We still do Pollyanna every Christmas and hang out whenever we have breaks at the same time.

Sandy: Oh that’s awesome, I love seeing pictures of your group together. Time for the last question: what advice do you have for current seniors at AHS?

Serena: Enjoy every moment! The last marking period of senior year was the best part of high school. Just really enjoy all the time you have with your friends and worry about the real world later. You have all of college to do that, trust me!

Sandy: Thank you so much, Serena. I really appreciate this, and I look forward to seeing you soon (and your hand-me-downs).

Serena: Of course! I’ll see you soon.
