We talk by phone Friday morning.
Here’s a transcript of the parts of the interview I find most interesting:
Luke: “Do you have heroes?”
Jan, without any hesitation: “Yeah. My parents.”
“While they grew up in a segregated country, they were still optimistic and patriotic. They pursued the American dream with great vigor.”
Luke: “Why did you choose to major in journalism?”
Jan: “I like writing, I like reading, and I like getting at the truth… I like considering not only my beliefs, but I like to analyze the beliefs of others.”
