Favorite Memory from High School:

My AVID sponsor, Coach Mason, and I were talking and I said, “Coach, I need some money.” She said, “Well how much do you need, bud? I have some cash in my pocket.” “No Coach, money for school.” “Ohhhh!” In that moment, I knew that she genuinely cared about her students. She was always willing to help us out when we needed it.

Favorite Quote: “Be you. Make sure you’re saying something when you’re saying something. It’s important to sound like you, to feel like you, and to be like you. Be you.” –Erykah Badu
