Almost didn’t attend college due to financial restraints but was blessed with a full-ride scholarship last minute
After switching majors 4 times, graduated college with a degree in CS
Worked at Amazon as a software engineer for a year
Quit job to become a part-time voiceover artist while focusing on entrepreneurial ventures

What I'm currently doing/hope to do
I believe life is about embracing change. After working at Amazon as an engineer for a year, I decided there was more to life than having a comfortable job. Recently, I took the leap to enter a year of entrepreneurial exploration. Currently, I have a remote job narrating children’s audiobooks while I spend the remainder of my time on startups. My current startup focuses on custom car mods.
How to maximize my time in high school?
Advice #1: Pursue what is meaningful (not what is expedient)
Advice #2: Tell the truth — or, at least, don’t lie
Advice #3: Assume that the person you are listening to might know something you don’t
Advice #4: Never drink to feel better; only drink to feel even better
