An Interview with Ramona Singer
Your twenties are a time of eraser marks and revisions, a time to figure out what direction you want your life, and how you’re going to get there. If you could have a face to face conversation with yourself at 21, what questions would you ask? We sat down with The Real Housewives star Ramona Singer to ask her some questions we had about her time as a 21 year old.
- How much time did you spend investing in your relationships?
Ramona: It would have depended on the relationship. I also never believed at such a young age to be in a one person relationship
- Did you know exactly what you wanted to do post graduation at 21? Or still unsure about the route you wanted to go with your professional career?
Ramona: I always knew that I wanted to be a buyer for Macy’s! I was working there at the time and it was the number 1 training program I was always happy with the road I took. I learned a lot about numbers, how to plan a business. When you are a buyer you are actually running your own business within the stores business. I found that being in that atmosphere really contributed to where I am today.
- Did you find you were constantly worried about your future?
Ramona: I am just a worry wart and very ambitious and always wanted to be successfully monetarily.
- Did you feel a strong sense of self confidence at 21?
Ramona: I did when it came to business .I always self doubted myself as far as my physical attributes.
- Do you still keep in contact with the friends you had when you were 21?
Ramona: Yes! My college roommate and I actually have worked together on and off for the past 20 years.
- Do you think you always gave 100% in college? Or wish you would’ve tried harder?
Ramona: I made dean’s list once but realized it really wasn’t worth it because I preferred working in the real world and of course dating, so no I don’t regret it.
- What was the most important thing in your life when you were 21?
Ramona: Getting the right opportunities and making my mark in my work path.
Your twenties are a time to be cherished, so invest in your relationships and keep your focus on building and maintaining them. Keep in touch with college friends, as they will continue to enrich your life years beyond your time at school. Try not to stress too much about your future, instead focus on all of the wonderful talents you have to offer, and decide what truly makes you happy. Keep your head and confidence high, despite any setbacks you may endure. And finally, live in the moment, this time in your life only happens once, and it should not be taken for granted!
