Interview Request Email, sent to Jimmy Wong!

A copy of the email I have just sent to my eminent person. I’m really nervous and excited to hear back. Wish me luck!


Mr. Wong,

My name is Lyle Hendriks. I am a Grade 9 student at Gleneagle Secondary in Coquitlam, BC. My class is doing a month-long project called the ‘Eminent Person Study’, in which we focus on one individual we deem as ’eminent’. I have chosen you, as I find your work in music, acting, and more extremely inspiring.

Part of the project is to secure an interview with an expert, either on your person, or in your eminent person’s field. However, since many select a dead eminent person, few have the chance to actually interview their person. The purpose of this email is to request an interview with you, to be scheduled for some time this week. The questions will be fairly simple, asking about your career on YouTube, your earlier life, and some opinion questions based on your online following and what that means to you.

The interview can be conducted however is most convenient for you, through phone or just email.

The earliest I will be able to do the interview will be on Monday, around 4 PM, and it shouldn’t take more than half an hour on the phone, and possibly less if exchanging emails.

Here are some links to information on the project, and TALONS (The education program I am in):

Thank you in advance for your time, and I look forward to your response,

Lyle Hendriks
