   Who would you say is your role model?
"My dad, he is a professional baseball player, he said, “confidence is the key to success, not matter what happens or what people tell you,  you got to believe that you are the best, you have to set your mind to it."

“Always follow yourself.  I went back and forth deciding to come here or stay home because I’m from Michigan. My sister told me ‘don’t stay here if you are going to ask yourself in ten years what if I went to California?’ Don’t let your thoughts hold you back. I’m glad that I followed my dreams and followed what I wanted to do instead of going to the in-state tuition but its worth it.”

 (Left) “But not as expensive as Starbucks.”

Who would you say has influenced you the most in your life?

   “Probably a late friend of mine. I don’t know, I wouldn’t have considered him the biggest influence until after he died, but at the funeral I noticed all the different people there. This kid was a social butterfly; there was every social group you can imagine there. Just seeing that changed me more than anything else in my life. The fact that he affected so many people and he is gone makes me feel like its my purpose in life to continue the legacy of his; that life is too short to stick to one crew.”

 ”We were at a local open mic place and he heard I could sing and he played some songs, I sang along to them and we hit it off. It just worked out like that.”

Is there any reason you would say that?
