I have nice memories of my uncle Colin as a child my uncle was a male figure I looked up and thought was a positive African American role model. He is very nice too. There were not a lot of African American males I knew who were also able to say they finished graduated school and I was also impressed by that. It was something I always told my uncle was really cool about him. My uncle is older. He works for Spike Lee. Spike is someone I also admire. I feel like film making is cool. For the history of cinema I saw Get Out with my friend a few years ago and it wasn’t that scary and filmmaker Jordan Peele won awards for it and I think he is very cool. I liked Laurence Fishburne. He passed away a year ago I think. I like Lee Daneils too. I feel like film and cinema in America is something very cool that these African American men that have made a name for themselves as filmmakers is something cool that can never be touched. I feel American because I was born in this country. I don’t really feel like I would want to live anywhere else other than maybe somewhere in the Caribbean.
