What’s the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome?
It might sound generic but people. I have a huge case of social phobia. I don’t like people all that much and the only people I tolerate are the ones I consider friends.
As an aspiring music teacher, what’s your biggest musical inspiration?
My stepdad had me take a lot of music lessons as a kid. I focused on string instruments and have been into music since.
What challenge as a college student do you face right now?
Learning how to balance school and work because I get out of work around midnight and attend school in the morning. I always have time to do homework so I am learning to balance the two.
What is your definition of success?
Normally people would say that having a lot of money or being famous is a clear definition of success but I can say that success to me is to be able to live comfortably and being what you consider happy. I consider myself successful in the sense that I make enough money that I can live off of and I’m happy-ish.
If you could do one thing to make the world better what would it be?
I would make education more accessible to immigrants and undocumented people who really want to attend school. I would make college cheaper so that way everyone could attend. Lower the cost of private school so that more people have access to it.
