Lanier L Chapman
Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I’m African American, Caucasian & Native American. My mother is white & Black & Native. My father is black, and native. Growing up it was a little challenging because I wasn’t sure where I fit in. But as I got older I became more confident in who I was & realized it was okay to not have to fit in with a particular side.
What are the bad things you see on social media?
Everything !!!!! On social media the bad outweighs the good . It’s like the news, the main focus of it is to show you the bad content in the world or for you to feel shitty about yourself. All I see on socials are people selling a dream that they aren’t even living or people dying. Sometimes as I’m scrolling I get off because my timeline is full of tragedy or a bunch of shit that’s fake. But once in a while you’ll see the cute stories about someone overcoming something tragic in their life so that’s cool to see .
What are the hardships you go through?
I’ve been through some shit in life. But if we’re talking about hardships at the moment I’m not having any.
What are your goals in life?
To have my own business , to be able to create wealth for myself and for my children. I want to start a foundation that helps men/women who have spent time in prison to change their lives once released. I also want to write children books. Another goal of mines is to have a beautiful /healthy family. I want babies with someone who will be a phenomenal father to my kids.
What would you do if you could change the world?
This is a hard question because there’s so many things wrong with the world that needs to be changed. I honestly don’t know where to start or what I would do. There’s so much to do. The world needs change bad and I don’t know where to start.
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
I’m happy with the person that I am yes. But the position no. I had a vision for myself by the time I turned 25 that I haven’t achieved yet. But I’ve learned to not put a time stamp on my dreams so I’m just continuing to work hard until my dreams come to me.
What questions would you like me to make next for the new interviees coming to the website?
