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

A quote I go by is “There's beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success” by J Cole the artist.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I pray to see myself playing college baseball with my degrees.

If you could change anything, what would it be and why?

I would change poverty, it hurts to see people living on the streets and suffering no matter what the circumstance is people deserve second chances.

Editor's Note: Teen of the Week is nominated by Alice ISD faculty and is selected by an Alice ISD faculty review committee. In the years past this recognition meant a chance to receive a scholarship from the Alice Echo - News Journal. However, due to the coronavirus and changes made to the Alice Echo - News Journal the scholarship is unavailable this year.
