If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you choose?
Kobe Bryant is who I would want to meet. He recently died and one of the things on my bucket list was to meet him. I just want him to talk to me about his mentality he had and what it truly meant.
If you could witness any event past, present, or future, what would it be?
I would like to go to an Elvis Presley concert. Growing up, I listened to him with my dad all the time. He would always talk about how cool he was we he preformed, and that is something I would want to do with my dad.
What is your favorite time of the year and why?
My favorite time of the year is towards the end. I like November because I get to see my family and friends during Thanksgiving. I also like December, because I love the Christmas holiday and the cold weather each year.
What was the first sport you started playing and why?
The first sport I started playing was baseball. My parents wanted me to try it, since I was their oldest and I liked the sport. I stuck with it until I was 12 years old and then stopped playing it.
What are your post graduation plans?
I plan on going to Coastal Community College and getting my basics done first. Next I plan on transferring to a private college and get my bachelors in Kinesiology. After that, I plan on going into a chiropractor school for four years and get my chiropractor license.
What is your favorite outdoor/indoor activity and why?
I would say basketball. I’ve always loved basketball since middle school, and it stuck with me. It is by far my most favorite sport to play and watch.
What do you miss most about being a kid?
I liked to take naps. I liked not having to worry about paying bills. I enjoyed myself and didn’t have to worry about anything.
The best advice I would give a 10 year old me?
Be yourself regardless of how people feel about you. Don’t give up on what you love. Stay true to yourself.
What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
I would always mess with my brothers and get too rough with them. They would always start crying and go snitch on me. I also lied a lot about stuff and put it on my brothers to get my parents off my back about it. I had a hard time listening to my parents the first time too.
If I won the lottery, what would be the first thing I would do?
I would first pay off all my parent’s bills so they won’t have to worry about stuff like that anymore. Next, I would do something nice for the family like take them somewhere. I would also buy a nice house for myself after I do the first two things.
