What's the best compliment you've ever received?
"I used to work retail and when I was working at the cash register, this woman came up to me and said, 'You have really nice cheek bones.' I had never heard that before, so I thanked her. Ever since then, I've been polishing my cheekbones. True story."
Los Angeles, California
What can't you do?
"So many things... I can't finish projects. I'm really great at starting a whole lot of things, but when it comes to finishing them, I'm awful. I'm just awful."
What do you still have from your childhood?
"I still have my hometown, the city of Azusa. I grew up there and I've been living their for most of my life. I'm lucky to be able to still experience everything I've experienced since I was a child, like go to our local parks, volunteer at my elementary school, middle school, and high school and just get to live around all my neighbors. They're the people that have shared the same experiences that I have."
What has moved you recently?
"This is kind of broad, but go with me. What has moved me is the way people treat each other. Through my personal experience in all facets of my life, I've seen the negative and positive outcomes of that. Specifically, unfortunately, the negative and the reoccurring habits or themes of families or groups of friends that perpetuate that kind of negative behavior and think it's okay. It's moved me for those people that have positively impacted me because I've seen them act positively amongst groups or act that way to other people. It's moved me to double check what I say and what comes out of my mouth and how it's going to affect people. Negatively speaking, in particular, what has come up more often than not is the selfishness that goes into how we treat people and how negative that can be. It all goes back to the Golden Rule: treat others how you want to be treated. So I think for me, in particular, it's like we've lost all sense of that. You treat someone negatively, but if they do it to you, you have some sort of defense as to why you shouldn't be treated that way. So my question: Why do we continue to perpetuate that? I'm so moved by it to be very careful of the words I speak to people so I wouldn't do that, especially in my family."
What are you bored of?
"The heat. I'm bored of the heat. I don't know, Summer I guess? I don't have anything to do."
