Q: Where do you hopefully see yourself in 10 years?

A: “I hope to see myself in a successful job doing what I love. I hope to have a wife or at least a girlfriend.

Q: Who is your favorite music artist and why?

A: “I don’t really have a favorite artist because I listen to a variety of music and I like a bunch of different musicians, but if I had to choose one artist to listen to for the rest of my life it would probably be Taylor Swift. I have been listening to Taylor Swift since third grade and I really like her music.”

Q: What is your favorite professional sports team?

A: “My favorite professional sports team would be the Chicago Cubs, ever since I can remember I’ve liked the cubs, and everyone in my family is also a Cubs fan, so I don’t know what my family would do to me if I wasn’t a fan.

Q: Who is your biggest role model and why?

A: “I don’t have a ‘biggest’ role model. I have had a lot of great people in my life who have helped me get to where I am now. I’d say two of the biggest role models in my life would be my mom and one of my former basketball coaches. He just really pushed me to be the best person I could be.”

Q: What’s your dream college?

A: “My dream college would be the University of Alabama. I’ve wanted to go to the University of Alabama for a long time. Then when my brother got the opportunity to take a tour I couldn’t miss it. Then when I got on the campus it was beautiful. Another reason I want to go to Alabama is to be closer to my family that is down south who I do not see very often.”

Q: What’s your favorite food?

A: “My favorite food would have to be Pizza. I am a very picky eater so pizza is a go-to for me. I love many different kinds of pizza, but pepperoni and bacon would have to be my number one.” 

Q: What’s your favorite holiday?

A: “My favorite Holiday is Christmas. Although I am not a huge fan of all the Christmas music being blasted all throughout November and December, I love spending the time with my family and friends.

Q: What’s one piece of advice you’d give to your 10-year-old self?

A: “One piece of advice I would give to my 10-year-old self is to be nice to everyone and treat others how you would like to be treated because you have no clue what other people are going through so what you say to them could really hurt them.

Q: What is your favorite TV show or movie?

A: “My favorite movie would have to be Superbad. I am a huge fan of comedies so when I finally watched it, it instantly became my favorite movie. The acting might not be the greatest but the plot and the actors they chose are just fantastic.” 

Q: What is one piece of advice you would give incoming freshmen?

A: “One piece of advice I would give to incoming freshmen would be to get your homework done on time and don’t wait till the night before. Get some sleep, the more sleep you get the easier it is to get through the day. And last but certainly not least; lock your gym locker.”
