Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I was raised in a mixed household (Filipino and white), and my parents got a divorce when 12 due to my father’s drug problem. I have had along A’s throughout my school years. Ever since t-ball I played softball, as did my dad. When I was in middle school, I began to lose passion for the sport due to it’s correlation with my dad.
What are the bad things you see on social media?
It’s not uncommon to see people be praised for doing things meant to be funny. Or doing illegal things for a joke and ending up in jail. But that’s not even on the surface of body shaming, talking behind someone’s back, and shade thrown at old friends or ex’s.
What are the hardships you go through?
I’ve always had problems facing the expense of college, my strained relationship with my father, and keeping a passion for softball. I worry about climate change and politics constantly. The constant fear that goes through my mind when I hear about how badly humans have damaged our planet, is anxiety inducing. I am bisexual. I have known since middle school, and my family isn’t always accepting. My mother continuously said it was a phase, that I’d changed. By the time I was in my senior year of high school, I told my dad. He lost his shit.
What are your goals in life?
Ever since I was 10 years old and my family took me to a UCLA softball game, I wanted to go to UCLA and play for them. It began to fade into more of, I want to go there so I can succeed in the world. I’ve always wanted to help make a difference in the world, whether it be in possibly working for an organization that helps our planet, or starting my own. As previously mentioned, with being bisexual I want more LGBTQ+ recognition. I’m extremely interested in doing something about how terrible it is if you’re gay in the sports world. If given the chance, I’d love to change it.
What would you do if you could change the world?
I’d love to say simply fix climate change, honestly. It’s what everyone worries about. But to be honest, the only way to genuinely fix our problems is to be more awake. To see what is happening in all places of the world, and genuinely do something about it. To make everyone that much more understanding.
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
Somewhat. I don’t think I could ever be truly happy with everything I’ve accomplished. There will always be times when I regret how I reacted to someone’s harsh words, or how much others affected me when I was younger.
What questions would you like me to make next for the new interviees coming to the website?
Can’t think of anything.
