At a recent party, I had the pleasure of speaking with a person named Sarah. The party was a friend’s birthday celebration, held at their home on a Saturday evening. Sarah was a friend of a friend and I had never met her before.
We started talking about our shared interest in hiking and outdoor activities. Sarah was full of stories about her adventures and it was clear she was very passionate about the subject. She had recently gone on a trip to a national park and showed me pictures of her journey. She was knowledgeable, humorous and very friendly.
Our conversation eventually turned to work and I was surprised to learn that Sarah was a software engineer. It was fascinating to hear about her experience in the tech industry and her thoughts on the current advancements in artificial intelligence.
I enjoyed talking to Sarah at the party because she was a great conversationalist, and she made me feel comfortable and at ease. I found her to be intelligent, interesting, and humble. She had a positive outlook on life and was always eager to share her experiences and opinions.
Overall, talking to Sarah at the party was a wonderful experience, and I hope to have the chance to talk to her again in the future.
