Xavier Gator: Ari Alexander

By Andrew Marini ’13

Please state your name and grade for the paper.

Ari Alexander. And I am a junior this year.

Since it’s the month of giving thanks, are you doing anything fun for Thanksgiving?

Yes, I am going to California with my family.

Sounds fun. Anyways do you like to eat turkey?

Yes, I love turkey, especially on Thanksgiving.

So, what you’re saying is that you hate animals?

No, I just really like eating meat.

Are you against animal rights?

Where would you get that idea?

Are you familiar with the work of Michael Vick?

Who?  Wait, isn’t he a celebrity.

You could say that—moving on what do you want to be when you grow up?

I would like to be a dermatologist because I love skin care.

Interesting. Are you super excited for Homecoming?


Oh, well, that was simply put.

I thought so.

What are you planning on being for Halloween this year?

Either a construction worker or Spiderman, depending on whatever mood I’m in that day.

Those are very interesting choices for a female costume, but they sound original.

Thank you, I really just want to have fun, I don’t really care too much about the costume.

Which event this year are you most looking forward to?

Prom! I think it’s a great American tradition.

So you’re a hardcore American?

For sure! I love ’Merica.

What activities are you involved in?

I do crew, I’m in the French club and the fancy dinner club. I’m kind of everywhere.

That’s cool. For the record, what’s the fancy dinner club?

Well, it’s not an official club. It’s just girls going out and eating fancy dinners.

Sounds like a good time. Let’s continue on.

Let’s not!

I’m getting the feeling you are somewhat done with this interview.

Sorry, I have a date with the fancy dinner club.

It’s the middle of the afternoon. Dinner’s definitely not for a while.

Thanks for the interview, bye.
