An Interview by Dr Kieran James

“When I was sick I was reading the paper. I saw a group of activists in Japan protecting against the fur trade. I saw the word “activist” below the picture. I thought “that’s interesting; I want to be an activist”. I told myself (I was very sick) “if I can survive this I want to do something meaningful in life”. That picture really helped. (I was nine-years-old.)”

The rest of the interview can be found here, and yes, you will realise that I ramble a lot and am unable to stay on the topic at times… :p well that’s because whenever I am speaking to a person, I am also having a conversation with my brain – one of my greatest flaw ever.

Note: Here is another interview of me done by Kieran done much earlier.

Dear Rachel,

Candid, Rachel… candid. You seems to have the passion, gut and drive for basic human dignity but lacks a key focus.

Just my opinion… just my opinion.

For me, it was more of a chat than an interview and I do have a high tendency to get distracted by things going on in the surrounding environment so I sometimes lose track of my thoughts for a few seconds. This is the reason why I seemed to jump from one point to another. This is a major flaw of mine. That is why I prefer writing because it gives me time and space to focus and really think and reflect about my opinions and stuff.

We all have weaknesses. Another thing here is, I am more intrapersonal than interpersonal and am a very private person so I am not used to talking about myself much. However if the interview was solely about the death penalty and other human rights causes that I am involved in, it will sound quite different (I might perhaps become even more straightforward). This is a personal reflection, partly in response to your opinion. Your opinions are valid, if one is to come to a judgment solely from this interview. I do appreciate the feedback, thank you for sharing it with me. 🙂
