Meet veteran Future Stars Diving camper, Noam.

Farah:  Hi Noam, it’s nice to meet you.  So, how long have you been attending Future Stars camps?

Noam:  Well, for a long time I went to the Tennis summer camp at St. Joseph’s Long Island and then I started diving and I thought maybe I should do the diving camp here!

Farah: Do you have siblings? Do they also go to Future Stars camps?

Noam:  Yes, I have a younger sister and an older brother. My sister doesn’t but my older brother attends the Long Island Tennis camp.

Farah: What camp are you in this week?

Noam:  I’m in Diving camp. This is my 3rd week.

Farah: I heard you say that you did tennis camp out on long island. Did you try any other programs?

Noam:  No I did not, just the diving and tennis.

Farah: ​What have you been working on this week in diving?

Noam:  Well, I did my double front. Last week, I was working on my inward double but I just got here this week, so I really didn’t have time to work on it. I have to take time to warm up for a day or so before I can do my hard dives.

Farah: What is your favorite part of this week so far?

Noam:  I like how there are so many kids, I make a lot of friends here and I see a lot of people that I already know. It’s really fun. When you dive during the year it’s all about diving but here it’s about  learning and having fun, and I like that!

Farah:  What are you most looking forward to this week?

Noam:  I heard there is a carnival on Thursday – I’m really looking forward to that!

Farah:  Do you have a favorite counselor?

Noam:  I do not because all of the counselors are just so good.

 

Farah:  Is there someone that you look up to or admire?

Noam:  Tom Daley, he’s a diver and Greg Louganis.

Farah:  Why do you admire them?

Noam:  Because they are very good athletes, and they persevered and achieved.

Farah:  What are some of your hobbies?

Noam:  I like to read, I like to do stuff. I dive during the year and I do it a lot so I usually don’t have that much time to do other stuff. 

Farah:  What is the best part of being a kid?

Noam:  You don’t have to worry about stuff and you can just have fun.

Farah:  What grade are you going into?

Noam:  I’m going into 5th.

Farah:  What do you most enjoy about school?

Noam:  I love learning about new things.

Farah:  What do you want to be when you grow up?

Noam:  I would like to be a doctor, specifically a geneticist. And I may want to be a diver as well.

Farah:  How did you figure out that you wanted to be a geneticist specifically?

Noam:  My mom is doctor and I was thinking about what I want to be and how interesting it would be. 

Farah:  Is your mom a geneticist?

Noam:  No, she’s a doctor, she does some genetics but is not a geneticist, but I thought it was super interesting!

Farah:  That is super interesting! For my last question – What is your favorite memory from camp?

Noam:  It would have to be when I was outside on the trampoline with all of my friends jumping! It was super fun!

Farah:  Nice to meet you Noam, and hope to see you next year creating more fun Future Stars memories!
