Final Project Source Notes (30)

Posted by mattieliz on March 16, 2009

Source Notes (30): Interview- Citizen (stakeholder)

Interviewee’s name: Shawn Souza

Summary: Shawn is a 21 year old student at the university of Oregon. When he was twelve years old, he got shingles, causing his immune system to weaken, even to this day, which then leads to him being sick very often. His sickness can get so bad, he needs a doctor’s attention, but there’s just one problem… he can’t afford health insurance.

Me: “What do you think about Obama’s universal health care plan? Do you agree or disagree? ”

Shawn: “I consider myself a conservative and normally disagree with issues that the democrats think are right. However, I believe universal health care is something this country needs desperately.”

Me: “Do you think you would change your mind about this topic if you didn’t have this condition?”

Shawn: “Honestly, no. There are so many people out there who have it way worse than me. Yeah, some people just don’t take care of themselves but for others like me who can’t help their condition and can’t afford the Dr. bills, it would be a nice thing to not have to worry about.”

Me: “So how soon would you like to see this take effect?”

Shawn: “I know it’s most likely not going to happen for a while (if it even does happen), but the sooner the better.”
