Derick and I couldn't meet with our assumptive personas in person, so interviewed them via email. After our critique last class, we were suggested to change our audience to wealthy business people instead of 20-30 year olds because they hold the most power and can fuel change. However, we still feel as though power is actually in the hands of the general public, who consume and work for these companies. As a result, we're still conflicted about who our persona will be, so we interviewed people from both sects.

- I am very involved with social media – I have a facebook, Instagram, twitter account, linkedin, and also a blog. I need to check all these outlets every day, especially because I know that it is one of the main ways of communication these days. I use Instagram the most, and Twitter the least.
- What are your current thoughts on climate change? What do you think people can do to improve your opinion of climate change
- I definitely think it is a problem, although I do not know in detail on the subject. I have heard and learned briefly about how environmentalists have predicted that global warming will pose a huge problem in the decades to come. The melting of the polar continents could cause flooding and climate change. I definitely think people can try to recycle all their waste, and be conscious of their consumption.
