“When people constantly interrupt you.”

Family Matters and White Collar. We’ll just do those two for now.”

“I want to go attend a World Cup. Whether that’s playing or just going to one.”

4. I’m scared of…

“Crocodiles. I’m also scared of hearing my heartbeat when I am sleeping. It’s weird. Like, you know, if I am laying down and the TV is off for too long, and I am thinking too much, I can hear my heart beating and that freaks me out.”

5. One random skill I have …

“I would say video games and ping pong.”

6. My favorite meal is …

“Mexican food or Ethiopian food. My favorite Ethiopian meal? They have a bread that they put underneath called injera. It’s, like, spongy. It’s an acquired taste. It’s a tiny bit sour. Then you put your order on top. Like, a vegetable order or yellow beans. And there is beef, chicken or you can get lamb.”

7. A little about my siblings …

“I have four siblings. I am the oldest. It’s a lot of responsibility. I was the guinea pig. They [his parents] were hardest on me. My little brother has it easier.”

8. I’m currently binge watching this …

How to Get Away with Murder.”

9. I’m proud of myself for …

“Becoming a professional soccer player. Chasing my dream and trying to work as hard as I can to get there.”

10. On the significance behind my number …

“I was drafted 31. And, all the other lower numbers were taken, so I chose that. Turns out my dad was 31 when he played basketball in high school. And that is actually my girlfriend’s favorite number, so three in one.”
