A: I just hope to keep making my engagement go higher. I am putting out my own merchandise too. After that, I don’t know yet.

Q: Tell us how you got involved with Team10 and what that means to you.

A: To me, I have extra help to do my social media work with. Everyone has a lot of followers and we all help each other. My dad is friends with Jake Paul from Team10, so that is how I met him.

Q: You’re about to launch a YouTube channel… What kind of content will be on your channel?

A: The videos will be about Team10, Minecraft, my vlog, and I will also do some pranks and experiments.  

Q: Who are some of your heroes?

A: I don’t really know if I have a hero. I like to treat all people nicely and show them respect. So basically, I like doing things that other people can look up to.
