Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi my name is Ezra. I’m currently 17 years old and honestly just trying to navigate my life. I take up quite a few hobbies, such as art and poetry. Though I take music a bit more seriously. I plan to attend Full Sail University to pursue a career in music production. Though on a more relatable note, I love horror movies and being around my friends.
What Inspires You Every day? : The musicians I listen to. Seeing them being so passionate about their music and giving up their whole life for music; it makes me want to do the same.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: In the end, we’re going to all end up the same, so we might as well live life how we want without a second thought for as long as we respect one another.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : To be happy. Of course I have career goals, and relationship goals, but ultimately what I want is nothing short of pure happiness.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I’ve been stuck with a family that’s not been the best. I’ve lost many friends and my contact with them, mainly because there’s been nothing to talk about with them. However, it’s given me so much time to reflect on myself and how I am towards other; a whole year and a half of time to be more precise.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Life is hard. You’ll learn that within the first 12 years of your life or so. Don’t let the bad days define your whole life. Recognize that sadness should not be the only emotion you’re allowed to have. And most important, be yourself. Cliché, I know. But it’s true. When you’re yourself, you don’t have to apologize for how you are. You don’t have to worry about all the lies you tell, and you don’t have to hold up the facade you front. You can just live your life worry free.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: Coming from the poorer family, I’ve never had things other kids had. I always had to worry about if I wore an outfit 2 days in a row. I had to make sure no friends came over. I couldn’t let them see how I truly lived. And for a long time this affected my life. And if I’m being honest, it still does in ways. But quite quickly I’m learning that both that and other struggles don’t have to be my weaknesses. And acceptance doesn’t mean I have to like it. But things like that, it’s who I am. And ultimately, I’m proud of that.
