Ten Things: People Past and Present I’d Love to Meet

28 Mar

Tanya HarrisYears ago in grade school, my teacher gave us an assignment: write an essay about someone you would love to meet and why?  Of course, I selected someone  famous because who wouldn’t want to meet someone who’s famous right?  Then in high school, the very same question was posed again.  However, this time we were to develop a list of interview questions and this “person” about the impact he or she has made on society.  For me, this would be more than a famous person but a person whose existence clearly impacted the world or just me on multiple levels in a positive or negative way.  Most recently, I posed this question to one of my classes, and it made me start thinking again about who I’d love to meet.  Of course, there are more than ten people, but these are some people I’d love to meet for both selfless and selfish reasons listed in alphabetical order.

  1. Common (Lonnie Rasheid Lynn)
  2. God*
  3. Langston Hughes
  4. Martin Luther King Jr.
  5. Maxwell
  6. Michael Jackson
  7. My Great Great Grandmother
  8. Oprah Winfrey
  9. President Barack Obama
  10. The Childhood Version of Myself

*Of course, God is not a person, but who wouldn’t want to meet God and have a relationship with him prior to actually dying?

Who we want to meet and why we want to meet them says a lot about ourselves.  Please stay tuned for detailed reasons behind my selections, and feel free to share your thoughts and selections with me as well.

All the best,

Anonomz aka Tanya
