Hornet: Who is Christian Chapman?

Christian: Mister Junior, from The Bronx, New York

Hornet: What made you want to become Mister Junior?

Christian: I always wanted to be the face of something. I always felt like my career would involve me being me and having to be the face of my own enterprise, so I know in order to do that I had to be the face of something that wasn’t myself, so I decided to be the face of the junior class.

Hornet: Growing up what were your career aspirations?

Christian: It was a whole bunch of them, right now I wanna be a sports analyst and I also wanna be an actor. Whichever one comes first I wont mind. 

Hornet: What else did you want to be?

Christian: That’s it .. a basketball player but then I realized I wasn’t gonna grow so I got over it.

Hornet: Is this where you thought you would be five years ago?

Christian: Honestly, I wasn’t sure where exactly I would be, I just knew that I would be in College.

Hornet: What are your plans for the future?

Christian: I really want to be a sports analyst and an actor really bad. So right now I’m trying to get as much exposure as I can and work on getting myself to where I wanna be.

Hornet: What do you like to do in your free time?

Christian: Play 2K, listen to music, relax and chill with my friends. 

Hornet: What are some daily inspirations that you have?

Christian: The little notes that my mom leaves all across my clothes and everywhere in my room. Sometimes I’ll find them, other days I won’t so these are good ones.

Hornet: Would you care to read one?

Christian: Yeah sure I’ll read the one I have 

Hornet: Where did you find that one?

Christian: This one was in my jeans pocket today and it says “You’re doing great”

Hornet: Aww that is so sweet. Who’s your biggest inspiration in life?

Christian: Myself 

Hornet: Why?

Christian: Because There’s only one Christian Chapman so I have to be the best Christian Chapman that I could be.

Hornet: If you could go anywhere in life where would you go?

Christian: To my bed, I’m tired. Nah If I could go anywhere, I would probably go to any Spanish speaking country I just always liked Spanish culture. 

Hornet: What’s your favorite food to eat?

Christian: All of them, but I’m kinda picky 

Hornet: What’s your favorite quote to live by? 

Christian: Umm, oh I have it tattooed on my arm I had to think about it. “I am my number one fan, I am my number one critic, & I am my only competition.” 

HornetWhat kind of advice would you offer a student, who is undecided on his or her career path?

Christian: I would say to research different fields. Try to get a feel for something you won’t mind possibly waking up everyday of your life doing. You don’t want to get 3/4 of the way through college and realize you completely hate your major. At that point you’ll begin to feel  lost, desperate, & sad. 

Hornet: Have you ever travelled outside of the United States? Where, and how does life outside compare to that in the US?

Christian: I been to the Bahamas & the water was so clean. It was the first time I went to the beach and saw my feet in the water.

Hornet: Are you interested in politics? If no, why not? What is your take on the state of politics and the future of the American democracy?

Christian: No. I have no reason, to be honest. I don’t pay attention to politics until they concern me because most laws aren’t beneficial to me.

Hornet: Let us end this interview with a memorable quote from you. How would you describe yourself to the world?

Complete the sentence: I am…

Christian: I am Christian Chapman the one and only.
