Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello my name is Brian rodriguez. I’m a 23 year old here from New York City. I come from Honduran and Italian descent. I love eating food, I can literally eat every minute of the day, I love sports with all my heart. Im a die hard lakers and dodgers fan for life. I’m a pretty unproblematic and dope vibe I’m just chill, I like to meet new people and digest different cultures. Im an aspiring actor/ film director, it has been my life long dream to pursue it. I will change the world for the people around me, my only goal in life is to inspire people.
What Inspires You Every day? : That’s a tough question because a lot of things inspire me. My friends and family are definitely my true inspiration. We all grew up in the hood, out of poverty. I seen all of them struggle, I seen days where my mom would come home crying because she’s late on rent. Days when my friends couldn’t come out because they didn’t even have $5 on them. I’ve seen them all struggle and fight so hard and I feel like my purpose in this world is to help them. I’m going to take them out of this environment and give them the life they deserve. I want to change people lives, and being successful and getting money will give me the opportunity to help my loved ones and any one in need.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to make an impact. Not just on my loved ones but on society. I feel like that is my purpose. I change people, I open up their minds so they can escape these generational and traditional barriers set on them growing up. I want ego inspire people to be free. To do what makes you happy, not what society tells you to do. People are forced into situations that change their mental health. The way parents raise kids really effects us as we grow. I wished I grew up feeling loved, but I grew up on survival. No kid should grow up like that. People need love, freedom, support, creativity. I want to change the world.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I’ve been trying to figure myself out during this pandemic. Been on a journey of self discovery. Pandemic has affected my in a weird way. I can’t explain it but it was a turning point in my life. I studied so much about life. I just had so much questions for life. Like what is life? What is our reasons for being here. Thoughts like that popped up. I feel like this pandemic opened my mind.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Do what makes you happy. Removes those shackles that’s holding you back from your true potential.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I love peanut butter and my KDR in warzone is 1.84 🙂
