What inspires you everyday
what inspires me everyday. I would have to say life itself inspires me.
What is something you would change about people in the world
something I would change about people in the world. I feel like I wouldn’t change anything in a person because who they are and the way they think and the things they say is what builds up the world and keeps us going. Yes people being racist is one thing I would wanna change because everybody is equal no matter what skin color we have. Rude people I would also wanna change that, cause nobody knows what another person is going through everybody deserves to be given a smile.
What is your view on society today
Society today, I would have to say that we have shown how we’re all one. We’ve came together to show that we support and are for many things but some things we just won’t accept/stand for. our society today has to understand that we can fight and our voices can be heard in many ways and that nobody can ever take away what we wanna say. Society today has proven to me how we won’t stay quite when something bad/wrong is being done.
What is something you’ve struggled with
I’ve struggled with many things at this age. But one thing I have struggled with is my emotions, I’ve depressed myself and it sucks. It’s really hard to bounce back from. cause once your in it it’s like you entered a black hole and you just can’t see anything. You just can’t find your way out and you start getting frustrated, you start to get stressed, and you think your gonna be ok but you’re really not. But I have to thank my friend for helping me get through it.
What is a positive message you would give others
A positive message I would send others is “BE YOURSELF , BE ORIGINAL , CREATE YOUR OWN STORY , LIVE YOUR LIFE , EVERYBODY HAS POTENTIAL. ALWAYS HAVE A SMILE, ALWAYS GIVE TO OTHERS WHEN YOU CAN, NEVER BE RUDE, LISTEN & UNDERSTAND. YOU LEARN FROM OTHERS, YOU LEARN FROM NATURE & YOU LEARN WAY MUCH MORE FROM YOURSELF. STAY POSITIVE EVEN WHEN PUT IN A NEGATIVE SITUATION.”
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
I would like to achieve many things in the future. But one thing I would love to achieve in the future is to keep myself standing high even when the world is coming to me low.
