Devin Schwener: it gets dark and really lonely but no matter how dark it gets there’s always a moon brightening the sky in other worlds there’s always something to smile for, and you’re never alone.

1. Introduce yourself(tell about yourself & who you are)

My name is Devin Schwener, I grew up in the Bay Area of California. I play football and music is a good therapeutic thing for me. Also, I’m a beginning photographer.

2. What are your passions in life that you are working towards?

Moving to New York, NYC and making it to my dream college NYU is what I’m working towards. I always loved the big city, it was always so fascinating to me. I want to major in photography and get a bachelors degree in photography. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get where I want.

3. What are some goals in life you’d like to complete?

I’d like to give a good amount of money to my parents to pay them back for everything they do/did for me. No amount of money could ever fully pay them back, but I’ll give what I can. Another goal I want to complete is being able to look in a mirror and look at myself and say, “I made my dreams come true”. Im working towards that every day.

4. What is a life message you would like to share with people around the world? 

A life message that I’d like to give out to the world is that life is like the night it gets dark and really lonely but no matter how dark it gets there’s always a moon brightening the sky in other worlds there’s always something to smile for and you’re never alone.

5. What are some traits or qualities that describe the person you are?

Traits and qualities I would say describe are funny, outgoing, kind, thoughtful, understanding and skeptical. These are all traits others have told me I was, and I don’t disagree with them. I always try to keep a bright mood for me and others around. I always try to be understanding of people’s thoughts and feelings, seeing both sides of a story is key. I love to help others young, mature or old, just all around helping others makes me happy. A smile on someone else’s face puts one on my face.

6. What are some struggles you’ve faced in life and how did you overcome them? 

I’ve faced a good few struggles and it what really affected me the most was when quarantine started, and I think a lot of people can level with me on that. I lost lots of confidence, and it’s like I forgot how to socialize with others. I suffered from anxiety and depression. I was a really social guy, but quarantine really killed that all. Anxiety and depression is no joke and I wish I took it seriously at the time, but as I learned and accepted, I found ways to help. I communicated with others, my loved ones and my close friends. Breathing techniques were also very helpful to my anxiety whenever I felt very anxious, it calmed me a lot. Trying my best to keep a good mindset and waking up every day and telling myself today will be a good day and everything will be okay, also helped me a bunch.

7. What are some questions you would like to ask other people around the world?–

I have one question for others in the world that I want multiple perspectives on and the question is,” Do you love and value yourself, why/why not”.
