Can you tell me about yourself?
Hi, my name is Oceana Gracie. I am 25 years old. I am a skilled professional doctor and a very unique and talented fashion designer. I am currently pregnant with my first child. In the upcoming election, Climate change & Economy matters to me the most. My state usually votes for a democrat. I would of still voted for Joe Biden even if I was a republican because of how Donald Trump behaves.
How do you feel about tomorrow's election?
It is my first time voting but I think and hope people will make the right choice. I'm really excited to find out who the president will be but I hope the country is in good hands.
Can you explain why people might not vote?
I dont really know but some people might feel like their vote is not worth much. Another reason they might not vote is because of the fake news going around. They really don't know what to believe. Some people don't vote, only because they don't like either of the candidates.
How powerful do you think your vote is?
I feel like my vote is very powerful since I live in Carlifornia but we need more than one vote to win an election. So I think my vote is powerful and might make a difference.
Why should people vote tomorrow?
People should vote tomorrow so that they can get their say in the election. It doesn't matter how they do it but I hope they are getting involved in their country's future and letting their voice be heard.
How do you feel about the voting system in America?
I feel like it is really unfair and think that it should be the popular vote that counts because we can then know the majority of people who wants this candidate as the president.
What about the presidency? Would you every run for president? Why?
I think running for president is a HUGE responsibility but I think I can do it, when I am at the right age of course. At the same time, I don't want to let go of my huge career as a fashion designer and my important role as a doctor. So it is a maybe. I might want to have a prospect as the first female president of the United States because I want to help the world's problems and save it from all the crisis going on, but I might not. Let's see what happens.
Thank you for listening to my interview!
