What they might have endured might not be something dramatic or life-threatening, but there should be elements of struggle and difficulty in their story. From that person, derive one important quality for survival. The interviewee might provide that for you, and you may or may not agree, but that is not the point. You should be able to argue that this quality is or was most significant in this person making it to the other side of her or his struggle.


Draw upon the following as you consider the questions you ask and the formation of your ideas:

What was the specific struggle?
Who was involved?
What resources did the interviewee have, need, or create for him or herself?
How was the struggle overcome?
What are the results of this struggle for this person?
