My Interview

My partner is Ngoc, who comes from Viet Nam. Her hobby is traveling all over the world. She said she and her husband want to make a lot of money to travel when they can. She also said she feels comfortable and happy when she goes to many foreign countries, because she can get more knowledge about the culture, traditions, customs, and things like that from there. Everyday, she follows the news on internet, especially the weather news, and she said she wants to make sure about the weather of the countries before she decides to go. On the other hand, she also likes the world news. She said she cannot travel if the war happens. It is difficult for her to travel to the countries where the war is happening. She usually finds some sources to get news from, or radio with AM 1290, a local Vietnamese radio station. When I asked her “who do you believe and do you think news is presented objectively especially when news from her home country is involved”, she said she just believes herself. And she only believes 50 % about the news, and she will find other sources which are related to that news. Because she said after she came to America, she has gotten a lot of differences about the political news from her country, which are not true. That is the reason why she wants to know news from her country from all different sources.
