    Student interview for Place-Based WAC/WID writing instruction in a sophomore honors seminar, clip 18 of 18
    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Harper, Rebecca ; Henry, Jim
    Brief excerpt from interview: I was specifically writing for a university setting, which I feel like is good for them to look at and be like 'oh this can improve the University of Hawaiʻi,' but it's not something that is bound to a university setting... so getting more awareness of horticulture therapy in general... it can be applied anywhere. Having more resources in America will be good anyways, so the idea of writing this is so that I will get that opportunity, so that I will be able to get this material out there.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I feel like it is difficult to switch over from scientific writing to more humanitarian type writing... I think just the language is a lot different. For scientific writing, you're writing spot on so that people don't get confused. So that they can repeat whatever you're doing exactly the way you're doing it. For humanitarian writing you use more vibrant language, you use more metaphors.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I'm a military kid... it's very difficult for me to stay in a place for too long. So I'm not too concerned about leaving Hawaiʻi. I don't think it's a thing we're gonna lose... I feel like we're at least going to be connected. I would certainly like to see something like [care farming] happen in Hawaiʻi.

    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Harper, Rebecca ; Henry, Jim
    Brief excerpt from interview: I think it's generally difficult for universities to accept change as far as improving the campus grounds with gardens and things and I feel like if it was any other location you would have the difficult with weather, which is all the more reason that this shouldn't be a challenge in Hawaiʻi. You pay so much, you should get your money's worth, I assume. I felt like this was my home and it just really hurt that we couldn't make it better.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I feel like John really introduced me into a lot of people who were possibly in a place of higher power than me. For me, though, I get the unique opportunity because... it's not like I'm working here... so in that way, I feel like I have a little bit more freedom because I can do things that other people can't.
