Q: What brought you to Japan? 

A: I first came from the United States marine core. 


Q: How has living in a different country changed your life?  

A: I have a broader perspective, I see things from an outside looking in point of view in terms of things that have to do with America and with Asia and I am in a position to see from both point of views. 


Q: What advice do you have for Black youth and creatives?  

A: It will really bring the real you out, patience is rewarded. The comfort people feel prevents being productive or experiencing different cultures, the willingness to try new things, I don’t think people want to leave their comfort zone, it’s not just about the studying part, it allows you to be exposed to a different culture, it is the biggest growth you can have to ensure you are more successful as an adult. To be successful find something to fight for, find something that makes you want to get up out of the bed, finding something that really drives you to get up and go out and get it, you need something strong driving you.
