Introduce yourself?: Hello. I am Preston. I am a senior at Castro valley high school. I am hoping to become an aerospace engineer.

What inspires you everyday?: Something that inspires me everyday is people’s kindness. It’s all the little acts of kindness that I am inspired by like holding the door open for someone behind you. Or lifting someone up when they have fallen skiing. Or even just talking to someone for a little bit and wishing them a good day.

What is something you would change about people in the world?: I would change their selfishness. A lot of people are just focused on their own image or facade and it doesn’t help ANYONE but them. Not even themselves sometimes.

How do you feel about the people in the world?: I feel that people in the world are naturally good, but with all the hate in the world it is hard to jump off that bandwagon and be good.

What is something you’ve struggled with in life?: Goodness. Something that I have struggled in life was dealing with mean people. I have Tourette’s and some people don’t understand it and don’t understand that I can’t control some noises, so they make fun of me or laugh at me. I have learned to make a tight group of friends and just treat everyone with kindness to make it easier for people to love me instead of poking fun. I have also learned that those things the bullies say is not worth listening to and just move on with my happy life.

What is a positive message you would give others?: I would say to keep living and try to take in every day because no day is like the other. Have fun and enjoy yourself.

what is some things you wanna tell people in the world and be honest? : Stop worrying about things you cannot control and move on with your life! Do something that can make a difference instead of complaining about it.
