Interview by Peter Leonardo
Recently, I was able to sit down and talk to Ezra, a senior at Village, about his future plans for college as well as other random topics!
I was accepted into Vassar College in Poughkeepsie in NY, SUNY Geneseo, and Binghamton University, also in NY. I would like to major in Word History and Philosophy at Vassar Collage.
What do you want your career to be?
I don’t know for sure what I want to do yet, but I’m thinking about being a professor at a college or an author.
What does Village School mean to you?
It’s a great school for kids who need to learn differently and need extra help.
Are you excited to leave or sad to go?
I know Village was a good trip for me, but I don’t know what college is going to be for me. I know college is going to have a lot more freedom, but less supervision; I know I’m going to be able to make mistakes and I’m going to have to figure out how to get through them.
What are some of your hobbies and passions?
I don’t do much outside of school, and I know my social skills are lacking outside of school, so I greatly enjoy my video games… my hobbies are basically school, video games, and eating and sleeping.
Whats the craziest thing you have done in your life so far?
I met a girl online that lives in Connecticut and I actually got my family to go there on a trip just to meet her… I kept it PG-13!
What kind of music do you like?
Post Grunge and Rock — I listen to Three Days Grace, Rise Against, Breaking Benjamin, and Billy Joel and I like some songs from Five Finger Death Punch but they’re a little too heavy for me.
Have you ever been to a concert? If so, who did you see?
I’ve seen a couple American Idols live….Against my will!! (he laughs). But for my birthday, I saw Nickleback.
Where do you go to lunch during the school week?
I bring lunch from home and usually do my work during lunch.
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Telekinesis (a type of paranormal ability that allows you move objects with your mind), so I can use my mind as a physical force.
