What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice?

“Always look at things from multiple points of views to understand more about the world.” My amazing mother.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see myself standing before everyone who has helped me in my life at a grand party, thanking them for what they have done for me to achieve my goals. Finished with my education I seek to help those in need through financial tutoring, while helping people gain a higher understanding of their finances and to establish a better financial foundation for their future.

If you can change anything about this world, what would it be and why?

I would change the way we receive the internet because in a world progressing faster than the speed of light, the internet is something we rely more and more on, and for it to be chained by a bill and withheld from those who cannot pay for it is like keeping education away from children. It is a necessity now in a world where classes are now done online.

If you could invite 3 people to dinner who would they be and why?

I would love to have dinner with some of what I believe to be the funniest people on the planet. Steve Harvey, Kevin Hart, and Ali Siddiq. The dinner would be interesting and the time between waiting for our meals will never have a moment of silence as these comedians would probably make me die of laughter.
