"If you could give advice to a group of people, what would it be?" "Don’t let anybody control you. Control your own path, what you do." "How has that impacted you?" "Yeah, sometimes I feel like people try to sway you to do things that will help them out instead of helping yourself out and I realized that just go and do my own business instead of following other people."

"How long have you been playing the guitar?""Um, I taught myself since I was about like 14.""Is playing the guitar or music something you’d want to possibly pursue in the future?""Nope. I won’t do it for anything else but to have fun. I was in a commercial band before and it was great and everything. I miss it, but, you know, it’s more satisfying to play for yourself and for fun. No pressure." "That’s cool. If you could give advice to a large group of people, what would it be?""Positivity is everything.""How has that motto impacted your life?" "Well, I don’t get hung up on silly little problems that I have no control over. Like for instance, today my boyfriend’s car just broke down. I didn’t end up going to class ‘cause I wanted to stay with him. He’s very upset, like he’s in debt from the car and everything and I just told him, you know, just stay positive. You’ll get through it."

"What are some of your dreams and aspirations?" "I want to have a position in economy." "What are you studying?""I’m doing my masters here in Business Economics and Business and Finance.""Why did you choose to do that?""If you have the economy, you have the world."

"If you could give advice to a large group of people, what advice would you give?""There’s a quote that I really like right now and I feel like it’s very relevant to my life so I would probably say this, just at this point: ‘It will all be alright in the end, and if it’s not alright, it’s not the end.’ I feel like it applies to a lot of things.”"When has this helped you or impacted you in your life?" "Pretty much all the time. I think like a lot with school actually because I get really overwhelmed and stressed a lot and I’ve been in school for like a ridiculous amount of time, well not really, but I transferred so there were a lot of times where I was like, when is this gonna be over? But I think that everything has to run its course and it happens for a reason so I think it’s good to always keep that in mind."

"I’m applying to graduate school right now. I work at the Learning Center. Philosophy tutor. Philosophy and uh, logic.""Why are you interested in philosophy?" "It’s very long, but okay, I’ll try. I have always been interested in science and theology and that’s kind of the middle place, philosophy. The reasoning to questions that there might not be any answers to. I find that interesting."
