Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hey everyone, my name is Joseph, and I’m a 16 year old Filipino-American from Las Vegas. I’ve been keeping super busy with both school, and working a full-time job. However, whenever I have free time, I try my best to stream on Twitch or upload YouTube videos. Feel free to check them out! My Twitch is EagleFire702 and my YouTube is EagleFire.
What Inspires You Every day? : The thought of my future inspires me every day. Everybody comes from different places and some of us have to grind a lot harder than others. My determination to work hard stems from my desire to have a happy and successful adult life.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: I once heard the words “Do not start a battle with someone else, if you can’t even win the battle with yourself”. I have lived by these words because they guide me away from judging other people. We all have our flaws, but it takes a stronger sense of self-awareness to identify what they are, and to hone them until they become your strengths.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My primary objective in life is to be happy. This can mean a variety of things depending upon who you ask, but my definition of happiness is being successful in something that I thoroughly enjoy. More than anything, I have a strong desire to turn my content creation hobby into a well-paying career.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : While the COVID pandemic is by no means a positive thing, being in lockdown has allowed for extra time for personal commitments. For example, my online high school classes end two hours earlier than they would in person. That extra time can be dedicated to my school work and/or job.
What is a positive message you would like to give others? : Don’t rush your progress. Though today’s tasks may seem difficult and unbearable, they will set the foundation for your dreams in the long run.
What questions would you like to ask others?: Stop worrying about what everyone else portrays as an ideal future. What do you want to do? And who do you want to be?
