Reading Activist's interview with author Kia Garriques

"My name is Nathan Aisthorpe and I interviewed Kia Garriques. I enjoyed it thoroughly although I was petrified at the start due to the fact that I had never interviewed anyone before. During the interview, Kia made me feel comfortable and she’s very easy to talk to. In some ways it didn’t even feel like an interview, it just felt like a friendly conversation.

This interview really helped with my confidence in public speaking and I’m now thinking of searching for a profession in interview techniques. This interview has also inspired me to read the book Innovera Yakov."
