What is your motivation to succeed?

Some of the things that drive me to success are my Grandma, OGs that have passed, and all of my younger siblings. I hold the torch for carrying my family’s name successfully through the next generations.


Tell us something most people don’t know about you.

I’m a private person and my skill and time is money. The things people don’t know about me may come out in my music - content dropping soon so follow me on IG @zbossdaddy


What are your long-term goals?

Some of my long-term goals are that I aim to significantly help to unify the world with its people, animals, and land. I would like to heal first myself and then the world through a Holistic approach and lens.


What does EOP/MAP mean to you?

To me EOP/MAP means to open doors and network.


What’s your most invaluable experience at Purchase?

Some of the invaluable experiences I’ve acquired include but are not limited to going to therapy, standing up for myself and what I believe in, and being consistent with asking for help no matter the response. Also taking accountability for all the problems I face no matter who’s fault it is and despite the things I can’t control, so that I can figure out a solution.​
