What makes you different?

What makes me different as a person is just me being me in my own natural way I don’t worry about or feed into what I know can be a distraction, or anything to stop me from achieving my goal. What sets me apart from my peers would be the message behind the things I do , what differences I want to make in my city and other cities as well.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I see myself running multiple business dealing with music & clothing I also want to become great a marketing

What legacy do you want to leave behind?

The legacy I want to leave behind will be life changing in my life for as long as I’m living I plan to put on for the struggle the less fortunate , I want to be like a “Nipsey Hussle” for my city and other cities as well I plan to start funding multiple systems far as things for health care , school programs , helping feed the ones who aren’t able to afford a meal things of that nature I want to have a VALID voice when I speak I want the entire room or whatever crowd I’m talking to , to feel me and take what I say or show as motivation to help increase the changes parts that I come from and others as well desperately need.
