1. Were you nervous before your interview? If so, tell us how you overcame your fears. If not, tell us the source of your confidence.

I was not nervous before the interview because i am familiar with my choice of woman. I actually made a list of women to be interview but finally chose her because i could easily access her. Also, I have been opportune to have an in-depth interview and focus group discussion in my field of work. These experience has increased my self confidence in carrying out my interview.

2. What did you do really well during your interview?

I used my phone to record my interview and at the same was writing. I tried to have an eye to eye contact with her as i write and not bury my head down on my paper. I also take her by her words and ask for much clarification.

3. What do you want to work on improving for next time?

I would still want to work the style of asking my questions to really get a clear answer to question so as to make composition of the piece much easily.

Hi Vivian,

Yes you really did telephone recording like me too but it wasn't clear for me. Thanks for sharing your idea! It helped me much:)
