I Interview Dr. Wanda Seymour. She graduated in 1999, majoring in biological science from Clemson University. She received her master’s in chiropractic care from Sherman College in 2004. Soon after graduating she started teaching Biology, Anatomy and Physiology. Now Dr. Wanda Seymour is the head of the Biology Department at Greenville technical college. I choose to interview Dr. Wanda Seymour because her career path resembles a path I would likely take. I don't really consider this an interview but more like a conversation because it felt so natural and real. She gave me some of the best advice. She told me that hard work and consistency is the key. when She wanted to give up because school and work was stressful, she thought about her family and how she needs to be able to provide for them. this comment change the way I see my professors because I really do not think about professor having a life outside of school sadly. but being a professor is just as stressful as being a student and I do not think professors get the recognition they deserved.
