One of my favorite apps that I like using is the Bible app (You Version), which provides different plans and daily lessons."

What else outside of school are you involved in or interested in?: "Outside of school, I'm involved in Hospitality. My parents own a few 4.0 Cuts barbershops, the Institute of Modern Barber and Beauty School, and the Aggieland Barber and Beauty Supply store. I work there mostly after school and on the weekends! I am the receptionist, so I greet people, talk to them, talk to the barbers, and help them out by cleaning up and making sure everything is running smoothly! In addition, I'm a sales associate at the Supply store."


Who do you look up to the most?: "I look up to my parents the most, and Jesus. My parents inspire me because they worked so hard to get to where they are now. If it wasn't for faith we wouldn't be blessed with any of this. My parents have taught me to be patient, work hard, and grow/ learn from my mistakes. Jesus teaches me what I can become and how I am supposed to treat others! It's about being selfless and loving. John 13:35 - "By this, everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another."


What do you want to be when you grow up?: "When I grow up, I want to be a business owner! I want to help out the barber shops and give back to the community. I want to be a barber, cosmetologist, barber and cosmetologist instructor, and business owner. Growing up in this environment has made me social, improved my communication skills, shown me all the behind-the-scenes, and taught me how to run a business properly."


What are three things you can’t live without?: Three things I can't live without are God, family, and friends!"
