Adam Mapoy Interview Question

Tell me about an important friend that you no longer have contact with.

My name is Adam Mapoy and I am a first-year student at Baruch College majoring in finance. I will be talking about a close friend of mine who played a big part in my childhood who moved away a couple years ago.

When I was in 2nd grade, I met a kid who had the same exact interests as me. Growing up, we played basketball at recess every day, stayed up all night playing video games, shared a love for sneakers, and we even had dreams of one day playing in the NBA together. He was my closest friend growing up. There was only one problem. My friend didn’t have the best family life back at home, and so there was always something going on behind the scenes that I was blind to. As time went on, the weight of his problems got heavier, and eventually the weight was too heavy to carry. He was getting in trouble at school a whole lot and slipped into a depression. I always wondered why the world had to give such problems to that happy little kid that I was best friends with at 7 years old. He eventually got the help he needed, and moved away to Florida to live with his cousins. This was about 3 years ago. He decided to cut off all contact and focus on himself and what he wants for his future. Every now and then, he’ll give me a call and catch up on everything, and from what I’ve been hearing, he has been doing pretty well. This serves as a reminder that not everyone has a perfect life, and we should never judge based off of how a person acts because you never truly know what someone is going through.

In our last class, I spoke to Joe Bello. I didn’t ask him any of the interview questions, but I did ask him a few personal question to get to know him. We talked about how he played baseball, and how it has always been a big part of his life. Through this I found out that we are similar, as basketball used to be a big part of my life, although I stopped playing once I got to college. I found it interesting how we were able to connect easily through our love of the sport we played for the majority of our lives.

    I definitely agree Adam, coming to Baruch I never been around so many people with different backgrounds which definitely makes me realize that we are not all the same as we think we are, so we should never judge.

  2. FAKHAR IMAM says:

    Do you intend to visit your friend in Florida and catch up someday?
