I like a challenge
I think high school will be a little challenging, but I’m ready for it. I like a challenge. I’m wanting to join the academy at Salem. I want to take art classes.
When I’m not at school I listen to music, play football and play basketball. I’m part of the offensive line for the school team. Sometimes, I like to draw and sing at the same time. I just lock myself in my room and paint or draw pictures. Hours at a time. I usually sing songs by Beyoncé, or those songs that just get stuck in your head.
Is art something you see yourself doing as a career?
When I grow up I plan on being either a doctor or a lawyer. I’m really inspired by Ben Carson. Ben Carson is an African-American doctor who rose above what others said he could and couldn’t do. People were telling him that he couldn’t be a doctor because of his skin color, but he took it to the next level and became one of the best doctors.
