My name is Chris Manni. I’m 20 years old living out in Arizona. I was born in Detroit Michigan, and lived in Troy for 8 years.
What inspires you everyday
My mother. My family. My dads not around, and he never was so I gotta be the man. Also God, i feel like God put me here for a reason so while I’m on earth I need to utilize the talent he’s given me
What is something you would change about people in the world
Nothing. I wouldn’t change a thing man. That’s up to us as human beings. We have to change ourselves for the better, and by example, the others will follow in bettering themselves
How do you feel about people in the world
I feel like people in the world should realize that they’re gifted. Where I’m from, what I see is that a lot of people seem trapped. Living in Arizona, they feel that it’s necessary to settle down, have kids, and work a regular 9-5. You don’t see many people chase their dreams. I’m 20 years old, and I see a lot of people my age stuck in this mentality of partying and drugs. That shouldn’t be your main priority. Work on yourself and build the courage to chase your dreams.
Don’t follow the ones around you, cause they may not be the ones you should be surrounding yourself with. Follow your heart and do you what you know is right regardless of what your “friends” think
What is something you’ve struggled with in life
Something I’ve struggled with earlier in my life is accepting myself for who I am. So many times I found myself trying to find someone who could show me the way. I’ve found that through speaking with God during prayer, I should accept myself for who I am and change myself in ways that are good. Good enough so that I can show people that they too can accept themselves for who they are. And motivate them to change for the better. I am working on myself everyday. So that will always be a struggle
To be perfect, because being perfect is unattainable
What is a positive message you would give others
The message I would give to people is: Chase your dreams. I’ve been in a position where one of my dreams died. I’ve been in a position where I almost accepted a 9-5 for the rest of my life. You will never be happy unless you follow your heart and do what you love doing. If you do that you’ll never work a day in your life.
Last question if you could make a difference in the world how would you do that
If I could change the world I would go straight to the younger generation. Every generation’s youth is where the change lies. We change the youth, they get older and they teach their kids. It’s a chain reaction.
