My nephew is in 10 grade and needs some homework help. For his journalism class, he need to find a person who plays an extreme sport or has a unique hobby then interview him and write a 3-page paper based on that interview (or just publish the interview).

He found an umreekan kid (a 10th grade student also 15-16 year old) and he has following three hobbies (3 in 1)!

1) Competative level stake boarding.
2) Juggling - he is very good juggler and does it on the parties and picnic etc.
3) Painter/artist - he is a competitive level painter.

He wants to design skate-boarding parks/rinks as profession.
Here is a skate boarding video - its not his;

So..... the help we need is, with the interview questions. Can you guys please come up with a some interesting questions to ask this umeerikan multi-talented kid?

Thanks a bunch.



P.S. We already have this question down:
"yeh shaouq aap ko kab say hua?" :P

Is it right for people to skateboard in multi-level parking lots, streets, stairs/railings etc? There are not many skateboarding parks around and it is a chore to get to them but to get better people do the above and it is more dangerous than parks and causes inconvenience for others

How many broken bones or worst injury?

your best stakeboarding skill?

Any plans to qualify for X-Games?

Can he juggle eggs?

When I see anyone skateboarding in Shopping Centres etc, I want them to fall off, and preferably get damaged.

Are skateboarders aware of this feeling of animosity towards them?

Funny...... he had a knee surgery to too long ago... and started to skate again.

Oxy.... what kind of "animosity" - if he asks? Well, then he must not be aware of it but just for my info.

[NB : I wouldnt laugh at a skateboarder skating in a skate-park. Then I would help him up and offer him a bite of my sandwich or sip of my Diet Sprite etc - its just the ones that skate in my 'personal space']

How many hours do you practice each hobby?

How do you make sure that your hobbies don't clash with other aspects of your life, such as family commitments and studies?

you need more ideas??? how is your nephew going to do homework? let him add his own questions as that is the real deal/paper be it asking him "what does he think about when painting? ... does he paint objects or imagination ... or ... what does he wear when skating" etc

You are making it sound like it is your homework or you want to impress niece/nephew very much. I am here to help but hten what wil happen when they ask you why they have only 2 legs

Like I have heard from a kid and it seemed like it was taught in school 'Use your imagination!"

No, its not my home work but I definitely want to impress the kid! :P
But seriously, poor kid is involved in 100 activities - like student council, jazz band, theater, science club, speech club, etc. He does not have time. I was just trying to help out to save a couple of hours - so that he can go to bed at midnight instead of 2:00 am which he does due to homework and stuff! Thats all. He'll have to do the interview himself, type up the paper/interview. Nobody can help him for that.
