On Thursday’s E-Hoop group, the members of South Belfast, get to experience 15 minutes with Ryan. Now you’re probably confused. I’m apart of E-Hoops on Monday and Wednesday nights. Since I’m injured, I can’t participate in practice. I went to the toilet during one of our practices and walked by the E-Hoops and introduced myself. I made up this whole story on how it was amazing to stop by and see them and it just so happened to be PIZZA TIME. I asked questions that challenged them in multiple ways and we all enjoyed our food together.


The next week my class went late and I missed the final 15 minutes with the group. The next day the SCL staff and Victory Scholars were telling me how everyone was asking about where I was and wanted to know what questions I was going to ask. I didn’t realize the impact I had made and from there on out made an effort to make it ever since! I was excited to get back the next week and meet all the new faces.


Some questions we’ve discussed:


-If you were stuck on an island for 3 months and could only take 1 thing, what would it be?

-Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?


If you find yourself at UUJ on Thursdays stop by for “15 minutes of Ryan!”
