(Questions and Answers with David)
Meet the 2020 Michael Lotito Fellows! This year’s class of Fellows is hard-working, creative, bold, and strong. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing their stories and dreams with you. We can’t wait for you to get to know these impressive young leaders.
How was your experience with the Institute last year?
It was an unforgettable experience. I learned so much and got to know both myself and my companions. My mind opened so much, and I was able to see beyond what was just physically in front of me. But above all, I started to want to live in a way different than society tells us.
What was your favorite week of the Institute last year and why?
The business and marketing week was my favorite because that’s what I already have chosen to study, and I really enjoy doing it, so the business training was a huge support to my studies and career. I also liked that week because people who were different in all ways lived together.
Which class or theme did you like the best?
English–I like the language. And it should be emphasized that our English teachers were different from the teachers we’re used to, and so I enjoyed these classes because I was really learning and really understanding what they were telling us.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan to get a bachelor’s degree in business administration, which is the career I’ve chosen to be the base of my life. Not only work, though. In my free time, I will continue to write songs like I do now, but in the future, I will buy my own music equipment and sing my songs in front of other people. I enjoy doing it, and I think my lyrics are motivating and inspiring. Also, I dream a lot about having a family and kids of my own, but that will happen when I am firmly established in life.
Tell us a few fun facts about yourself.
My favorite food is mole. On the weekends, I enjoy coloring, writing and taking care of my plants–I have a lot, and I loooooove them. In school, my favorite classes are biology, business administration, and English.
What app do you use the most and why?
WhatsApp because I can communicate with my loved ones and friends who are not nearby.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
It’s been my dream since I was little to go to New York. Christmas seems incredible there, and I would love to spend Christmas there.
