Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is Kohri Cowan and I’m from Los Angeles, California (The Crenshaw District to be exact). I’m 26 years of age with a goal to chase and that is to leave my mark on this world in a positive way. I’m a product of my environment and I believe I’m a positive representation of where I come from. Im a man of honor and dignity and will always carry myself in the highest form I can. I’m a black artist who loves to create. Whether it be photography, vlogging, or writing.
What Inspires You Every day? : It’s not a matter of what, it’s a matter of who and that individual is Nipsey Hussle. Nipsey also came out of The Crenshaw District and made the section proud. His music and interviews had so many gems in it and his work and impact on this world will forever be timeless. If it wasn’t for his Marathon mixtape, I probably would be dead or in jail. His music taught me to stay ten toes down and work hard at any thing I do.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: If you don’t know your full-throttle history, the whole story of how you come too where you are, it’s kind of hard to put things together.
On a mission, your worst enemy is idle time.
Most people want to skip the process, not knowing that when you skip steps, you miss lessons. If you start small and build on what you have, you can continue to multiply that into something greater, while picking up all of the valuable lessons along the way.
The most important thing is to get rid of doubt. If you got doubt in what you’re doing, it’s not gonna work.
You will never be criticized by someone who is doing more than you. You will only be criticized by someone who is doing less than you. Remember that.
We’re not the cause. We’re the effect.
If you look at the people in your circle and you don’t get inspired, you don’t have circle you have a cage.
Find your purpose or you wastin’ air.
Be truthful with yourself and other people, and try your best to make decisions outside of your ego.
Luck is the product of hard work.
These are all words by the late great Nipsey Hussle.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to simply travel all around the world and to give back to my community. I want to be a reason of the change in my community that I wish I had seen growing up.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I’ve been good during this pandemic. It has its highs and it’s lows. It only affected my mental health part because I’ve never been through this before so this was all new. Not being able to do the things I was doing before COVID and then just having to stay in the house all of a sudden was a big reality check for me.
What is a message you would like to give others? : One message I would like to give to others is to be good to people. Positive karma is real and it will come back to you in tenfold.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I just would like to say that I have came a long way with still much more room to grow. I’m a work in progress and I look forward to the future. To whomever I may come across, I hope I leave a positive impression on you. May God be with you all.
