Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I’m a Texas born, Atlanta raised soon to be legend. I’ve grew up in Atlanta most my lived in Atlanta Most of my life & love every moment of calling this beautiful city home. The nightlife, amazing nature trails, lakes, & humble southern hospitality. I attended Georgia Perimeter & Georgia State studying Marketing. I’ve worked for Beverage companies, bars & a few restaurants before studying more & trying to figure out my own business ventures.
What Inspires You Every day? : Hmm, simple the sun shining through the blinds to ensure I’ve lived another day. My friends and family keep a smile on my face & welcome me with positive words each day.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: “Make tomorrow better than yesterday. The next day shall always be brighter than the previous one” I live by these words because even if something bad happen, you could try to be positive afterwards. And if you achieved a goal, you should stay focused & motivated to stay in that path.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : A travel series documenting every small town America has to offer. Informing others of small businesses, scenery, history & the culture of places that don’t receive the tourism they deserve. Showing people you can travel & have a great time on budget even if you don’t have much time. I also have a tea company in the works. And one day I’d love to create a bourborn & other spirits and become a household name. If anyone would like information on the travel vlog or donating feel free to message me via Twitter or Instagram.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I’ve been home & learning more knowledge on everything. It’s the perfect time to study & research. It’s a affected me in many ways but we shall surpass. I’ve been social distancing & quarantining so I’m pretty cautious but my relationships with friends have grown stronger.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Keep your thoughts bright so your mood won’t be dark.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: After this pandemic I’ve realized I need to focus more & try each day harder to accomplish my goals.
