– Some Questions For TJ –
TZelement MAG: What’s the one word you would use to define yourself?
TJ: RESILIENT! As a cancer survivor, I’ve learned that things aren’t always as final as they initially appear. No matter what I’m faced with in the future, I may bend a little bit, but I won’t break.
TZelement MAG: With regards to your creative talents, where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
TJ: Five years from now, I see myself living in Los Angeles – continually learning and expanding my vision for network television, motion pictures and publishing. For me, believing is the first step toward any goal; if I believe it, I trust I can have it.
TZelement MAG: If you had the authority, what 3 things would you change in the world?
TJ: 1. I would implement a diversity-rich curriculum in every school, with conferment requirements that include community service, role-playing, and mastery of diversity based learning aids. Our children need to understand there’s a societal aspect to their education that’s just as important as letters and numbers.
2. I say, let’s do away with incarceration and weapons. Maybe this is just how my mind works, but I can imagine a world where the punishment for a crime – is performing random acts of kindness (until the debt to society is paid in full). A world that promotes peace through non-violent reform—yes, that’s what I would create!
3. It bothers me to see a gifted person struggling from lack of access. I would create viable opportunities for people to go after their dreams. If we do what we love, the money will come, right? There’s a quote from one of my favorite bookmarks – that speaks to the beauty of a benevolent spirit (a gift from my mother – just days before I relocated to California, author is unknown), and it reads… “The journey of life moves in one direction, any kindness I can show my fellow man, let me not defer, for I shall not pass this way again.”
