Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello! I’m Ezra, and I am 23 years young. I’m a born and raised Memphian since April 12th, 1998. Im a twin and the 3rd child of my mom. I like all types of sports, technology, and art. I’m a model, a pilot, a basketball player, and many other things, but the one thing i am the most is a positive influence and change for my community.
What Inspires You Every day? : The possibility to see and experience something new is what inspires me the most. I enjoy asking myself the question, “what can I experience/ do differently today?” It’s allowed me to change my mindset on things and open up the shell I was once in when I was younger. It’s allowed me to meet new people, go after new goals and open my mind to a diverse group of things.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Two things come to mind. 1. Treat others how you would want to be treated. And, 2. Think about how this will effect you in the long term. The first one is is a common piece of wisdom that many people overlook, especially these days. For the 2nd piece of wisdom, nothing last forever, but a kind deed or word does so think how someone can change off of that and still appreciate it years later.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to be at peace. Mentally, emotionally, financially, and physically. It takes hard work in the beginning but it can be achieved. It’s even more possible when you have someone you can be at peace with.
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : My advice is simple. Do You. For some it brings happiness and a source of achievement. For others it brings stress and heartache. If you’re in it for the right thing it can be beneficial, but it can be stressful if you can’t handle it. Know when to take a break for yourself.
How would you help people around the world who are going through mental health problems? : I would help with a conversation. A lot of problems are easily passable if you just talk about it to someone you trust. Its up to them if they listen.
How would you describe a better world for us all? : Everything free. Free travel, free education, free heatlhcare. The world could achieve so much if money wasn’t holding many people back.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I may be a black man, but I am not to be generalized. Do not fear me, just get to know me and understand me. This is for all races to be honest. Stay peaceful, stay progressive, stay beautiful and I’ll see you around!
