Classmate Conversation with Inessa Lopez
This week I had the privilege to speak to fellow classmate Inessa Lopez. Inessa is a second year student majoring in physics. Inessa chose physics because this major is practical and safe for her future. As for her future career paths, Inessa keeps a few options available to her. Before she starts working, she either wants to get her masters in engineering or get her PhD in physics so she can conduct research. Although, Inessa’s dream job is to be an Imagineer for Disney. An Imagineer is someone who works in the design and development arm of The Walt Disney Company, responsible for the creation and construction of Disney theme parks worldwide.
Inessa was born and raised in Southern California. Ethnically, Inessa is mainly Hispanic but also contains some German. Inessa is a full time student who holds a part time job at Knott’s Berry Farm. Inessa was telling me that while working at Knott’s she gave VIP tours to Vanessa Hudgen’s and the band 30 Seconds to Mars. The life that Inessa leads is a very busy one. She has to balance school, work, homework, working out, spending time with her boyfriend and sleep. Her favorite thing is to sleep because with school right now she isn’t getting a lot of it.
The classmate conversation question of the week was: “After visiting the galleries and seeing different art work, how does anything you see in this work of art remind you of something else you have seen or experienced?”. Inessa’s response to this question was “At the galleries there was this one exhibit of just shirts and the artist talked about the mix of cultures from all around the world and how everything comes together to make modern cultures of “works of art”. What inspired the artist was that all the shirts came from different places and people. That reminded me of the U.S. and how giant this country really is.”
It was really nice to meet Inessa this week. She is a very nice girl and we both agreed that school is a never ending vortex of stress and sleep deprivation. If Inessa and I don’t stay in touch, I wish her the best of luck with the remainder of the semester.
