What was an experience that made you a stronger person?
Joining a sport for the high school made me respect things more and become a better person. It was a great experience while it lasted.
Tell us about the friends you’ve made thought your school years.
I made a lot of great friends over the years. They been great to me and help me with tons of things I’ve needed. They’ve been there for ups and downs and they’re really supportive. They genuinely made my years throughout high school.
Where do you work and what have you learned there?
I work on the beach for a service company called Suncoast Beach Service. I’m having a great experience there, and I’m learning a lot about business and how to sell things and make money. I meet a lot of people out there. I get a lot of advice from older people that tell me what I should do with my life and how I should make the right decisions.
What’s your favorite outdoor/indoor activity and why?
Going down to the beach and enjoying a nice breeze is the best, you know, just feeling the ocean water and the sand in-between my toes. I love going out there and surfing and skimming.
What is your favorite time of the day/week/or month and why?
My time of the year is most likely December, and during the week my favorite day is Friday. Fridays are great because it’s the start of the weekend and a new week is soon beginning. December is my favorite time of the year because it’s time for Christmas.
If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
I would like to witness the future, so I can see where my life is headed. At that point, I could come back to the present and fix anything I need to remedy to make my future better.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
If I could lean to do anything I wanted, I would like to learn how to save my money, conserve it well, and become a businessman. I would like to learn how to sell things and make a lot of money while doing it. That’s really what I would like to learn the most – how to make a lot of money.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is help my parents with all their bills. I’d like to get them something new, like a car or a truck. I believe they deserve something like that for raising me the way I am now and being able to put it up with me for this many years.
