1. What is your name? My name is Phung Luu. 2. Where are you...
A moment with… Jennifer Roberts
- What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
Definitely getting to know the students. Whenever I get tired or stressed, I think how lucky I am to meet such amazing people.
- What did you do before working at CELOP?
I worked for a number of other small ESL programs before coming to CELOP. Obviously, CELOP is better J
- Where are you from?
I grew up in Chicago, but I have two different traditions in my family. My dad is from St Croix, a small island in the Caribbean. My mom and her family is from Mississippi.
- Favorite thing to do in Boston?
My answer to this question changes constantly. I love the Charles River and being near the harbor. I also like walking and exploring Boston’s many green spaces.
- If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Something Korean. I love Korean food the most.
- What’s your favorite TV Show?
My favorite TV show is a tie between The West Wing and Avatar the Last Airbender. Both shows are excellent and if I’m looking to spend a few free moments watching tv, these are top of my list. I’m also constantly changing which characters I identify with the most.
- What is the best destination you’ve travelled to?
My dad’s hometown in the Virgin Islands is basically a paradise. But I’ve only visited, never lived there.
- Favorite restaurant in Boston?
Hmmm. This is another tough question. I would like to say something that’s really fine dining. Instead I’ll say KFC biscuits are my jam.
- What are your hobbies?
Sleeping, eating, playing games, reading… Are these considered hobbies? Or just life?
- What is your hidden talent?
Dance is my job when I’m not at CELOP. I don’t think it’s such a hidden talent. Dance is how most people know me, and the thing I love most in the world.
- What would people never guess you do in your role?
I actually have to be pretty strict in my job, and I know students would never guess that. Lol. But if you can imagine taking a group of 35 people on a tour in the South End and not losing anyone, then you understand how strong my crowd control skills are.
