What was the last thing you ate?

It was good. I had one of those veggie wraps from the City Café, yeah.

What’s your favorite song right now?

“College Drop” by Sage the Gemini.

What do you think is the ugliest fashion choice one could ever make?

Socks and sandals. I hate socks and sandals.

What’s your favorite quote either philosophical or inspirational or whatever?

“Never give up it is often the last key on the ring that opens the door.”

What’s the best advice you could give to anyone about their life?

Just focus on being you. Don’t let other people determine how your life is gonna go, just focus on your happiness and not try to make other people’s happiness what you make your happiness depend on, because you’ll end up being hurt in the end.

What’s been your favorite class at City College?

That’s a hard one. My astronomy class is on point my nutrition and psychology gives me happy feels and philosophy just blows my mind everytime I step into it, even though I’m failing it right now I’m probably gonna say philosophy.
