Jordyn Toscano: maintain a unique perspective when looking at life.
Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I grew up in Northern California with my parents and two younger siblings. I was very involved in the community and sports, and had many huge dreams that I still carry with me today.
What do you value most from your country?
In the United States, where there are many controversial issues and problems, I most value the opportunities available to those who look for them.
Who influences you to go after your goals?
Growing up, I always looked up to my Great Aunt Shari Caudron as the epidemic of who I wanted to become when I grew up. She is a very strong individual, whom has had a myriad of unique experiences in her life. From traveling the world, to becoming a published author, she is my greatest role model.
What advice can you give a teen about going through hardships?
Everyone goes through hard times, especially in their teen years. My advice to you is that you maintain a unique perspective when looking at life. The hardships that you’re going through now, you won’t be going through in the future. The time is going to pass anyways, so why not look at those hardships and find the light in them now.
If you and only three wish to change your family or the world’s life what would they be?
1. I wish that everyone embraces equality, regarding race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender, income, and so much more. 2. I wish that we resolve the issues the world is currently facing in regards to climate change and our impact as humans on the environment. 3. I wish that we prioritize education in our society and decrease the pricing of school, rather than lift up those who are wealthy by giving them the best education.
Was there a time u helped others out?
I try to help others on a daily basis in a myriad of different ways, so yes I have helped others out before many times.
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
Definitely, I’ve been very happy and successful recently.
