This interview with Chloe Rudinoff, FASPS educational assistant, was recorded on October 23, 2019.
How did you come to work at FASPS, Chloe?
Chloe: I had a dance rehearsal in West Seattle a few months back, and the rehearsal got cancelled, so I went to Lincoln Park while I was in the area. FASPS was having their open house picnic for new parents, and I remember walking by and thinking, “Hey, that’s pretty cool. I wonder if they have adult classes.” I’d been dabbling in French for a few years. I asked, and they said, “Well, it’s a school for kids,” and out of nowhere I asked if they were hiring because it seemed like a really friendly environment.
I then went through the interview process, and, at first, when they offered me the job, I said no because I was afraid of a big full-time job in my life. I’m still pretty young, and I just moved to Seattle, so I didn’t know if I was ready for a nine-to-five with a big morning commute through a huge city twice a day; I have never lived in a city before!
