Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hey, I’m 19 from Houston, Tx. Currently attending Lamar University in Beaumont, Tx. I majored in MIS and just finished my sophomore year. I work two jobs to pay for my car bills and other Miscellaneous things. I really been trying to put myself in a position to gain passive income and try to grow as a person.
What Inspires You Every day? : Everyday I’m inspired by knowing that I don’t want to be mediocre and proving to people who doubt me that I’m better than the eye can see. I do want everyone to be successful though. I also get inspired by seeing family issues that I want to change. Also music is a big part of my life and I listen to it everyday to inspire me to go harder than before.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: I live by a couple, like knowledge is power, scared money dont make money. Also, Don’t ever get to comfortable because you won’t find your purpose that way. You will also be the biggest obstacle to overcome(we hold ourselves back the most). Those are just a couple things on my mind.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to have freedom, the ability to move without any worries and gain enough success just to help others and share my happiness throughout.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : It has only had a direct impact on school and the way things move involving that. It has affected friends and family more, maybe because I have decided to ignore it and look pass it. I try to see the good in every situation.
What is a message you would like to give others? : I would like to say that I truly believe that anything is possible and you have to get your mind right before anything to succeed. I myself deal with depression from time to time but I have to realize it’s in my head and I know what I’m capable of. You can also do whatever anyone else can do just try your hardest and what is meant to be, it will be.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I sometimes feel like I’m going insane because of the goals I have yet to reach and minor setbacks. I also go in and out depression but then I realize who I am. Also I listen to a lot of music which is my biggest Therapeutic clutch. I listen to music and keep it pushing.
