    Hello Mr. Semas and Ms. Mendes Gulley,

    I am currently doing a school assignment that requires an interview with a professional in our chosen topic for English class. I was wondering if either of you would be available for an interview via e-mail or zoom, no longer than 10 minutes. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact via my email.
