In this line of work, you get to interview a wide variety of people. You interview friends, leaders on campus and amazing peers. It isn't often that you get to interview a person that you work so closely with like an RA floor partner. What is a floor partner you may ask? Just imagine it as a partnership, much like a marriage, but add sixty some odd residents that somehow become your children. Things can get stressful and complicated, but at the end of the day, you have each other's backs. As a floor partner, it was difficult to come up with questions that I didn't know the answer to, but since we both are quickly approaching graduation I thought it was important to ask Kai to think back on all that she has received and done for Emerson.
Her Campus at Emerson: What will you miss the most about Emerson?
Kai Grayson: The immediacy of the community. To find a community of people who are like-minded in art and (mostly) liberal and progressive views is going to be very difficult out in the world. I've had the privilege of being around like-minded people since I started school. Leaving Emerson will create a change in my community. Whether it is good or bad will play out in time.
HCE: What has been the best memory you have while being an RA?
KG: Every positive RA experience has happened because of my residents. They are AWESOME! Yes at the end of the day we are here for them, but they have shown me the most respect and support I needed in order to stay happy on the job.
HCE: What are you most excited about after graduation?
KG: I really hate doing homework. It's too trivial. My essay about the moral career isn't going to reveal anything about sociology.
HCE: What is the most "Emerson" thing you've done during your four years here?
KG: Other than going to the Esplanade drunk, going to parties at the tree house, quidditch, orientation, being an OL, working for EIV, getting lost on the T and dashing across the Boylston/Tremont intersection with 2 seconds left....I'd say continuing to pursue my dream. That was so cheesy, yikes.
