Great Answer.

Posted on Tuesday, October 8th, 2013.

What are you most proud of? How would you like to be remembered? What does your future hold?

Ashwinis2StoryCorps interviews are the perfect time to ask the questions you have always wanted to ask. We call them “Great Questions.” You learn so much about a person by just asking “What was your happiest moment?” or “Who has been the most important person in your life?”

So we thought, why not ask some folks on staff to answer some of these? You might not know this, but we currently have 103 people who work in our Brooklyn headquarters and 140 total. Each month, you will get to know a bit more about our awesome team.

First up: Ashwini Shridhar. Ashwini works in our Participant Relations department. If you have a question about anything related to your interview or StoryCorps in general, Ashwini is the woman to help you out!
We asked her:


“I was a really good student. I was voted ‘Most Likely to Succeed’ my senior year in high school. I think everyone, including me, thought that I was going to have everything completely figured out. However, my life has been much more winding and adventurous than I thought it would be. And I’m happy being on this adventure.”

What is your answer? Tell us in the comment section below!

  • I moved to NYC 16 years ago and thought it would be for just a couple of years. But something keeps me here – job, school, and most importantly, wonderful friends. It’s been completely different than I planned, but as Ashwini says, I’m happy being on this adventure.
