An Interview with Nick Davies
(A Student at Green Acres who is involved in Community Outreach)
Matthew Grant and Berkcan Hikmet, Ms. Hudson class, Grade: 8
Matthew: What form of activism are you going to do?
Nick: We have these shoeboxes; we put toys and home essentials, in it. No foods or drinks since they would probably expire before it got to them.
Berkcan: When are you going to do this activism?
Nick: I am not exactly sure when we are going to do this. I suspect it is going to be around Christmas time.
Matthew: Why are you going to do this activism?
Nick: I believe that kids all around the world deserve a good Christmas.
Berkcan: Be specific, what type of stuff are you putting in the shoeboxes to perform the activism?
Nick: We are putting in toy cars, Barbie dolls (for girls). We would not put in toy guns/ slingshots because it would teach the kids receiving them, bad behaviour.
Matthew: Where are you going to do this activism?
Nick: I believe that we are going to do this in our school with Aimee Heffmann in my class.
Berkcan: Where are you delivering these packages?
Nick: Homeless people will probably come to our school (Green Acres), to pick up whatever happens to be in the box.
Matthew: What do you call this whole thing?
Nick: To be honest, I do not know if there is a name for it but what we are doing is giving back to other people. We care about other people and in our Early Act Leadership Group; we are doing a variety of activities that will put others ahead of ourselves.
Matthew/Berkcan: Thank you for this interview.
Nick: You are welcome.
