Corey St. John
A man of few words, but a lot he has seen in his life. He has seen heart break, had plenty of sleepless nights, and trials and tribulations in his life. That’s what makes him great! My father, Lyndon St. John.
Life is all what you make it and the company you keep. Some principles you should have are to be hard working, relentless, and hunger to have more than what you already have.
–Lyndon St. John
Q: Who is the man behind the face? Where were you born and what was your upbringing like?
A: I was born in St. Georges Grenada in a small 4 – room house with seven siblings. We made the best out of our living circumstances and had a lot of fun.
Q: Who has been the greatest influence in your life that has impacted the man you are today?
A: My father
Q: What about your family?
A: My family was good, and everyone was always positive.
Q: Can you tell us of your education history and what your goals or life ambition was when you were a student?
A: I was in high school but did not finish because it wasn’t for me. I knew how to fix cars, so I knew that was a trade that could make me have money in life, so I worked hard to open up a business and that’s what I did.
Q: What was the most memorable point at that job?
A: The most memorable part was having the opportunity to help people be happy, by making their car work better than before they gave them to me.
Q: Is this where you thought you’d be five or so years ago?
A: No, how I’m living now is better than what I thought would’ve happened.
Q: What informed your decision on doing what you’re doing now?
A: This style of living is very steady and is a great source of income to support my family.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: My plans for the future are still unknown. I’m living in the moment as of right now. I have some stuff in the works right now, but we will never know what will happen until it does.
Q: What kind of advice would you offer a student, who is undecided on his or her career path?
A: I would suggest kids to not look at their peers and where they are at in life. Everyone’s path is very different and just because it looks like someone’s doing good in their life doesn’t mean they are.
Q: How would you describe the state of higher education in America today?
A: Education in America is bad compared to other countries. America floods its students with tests that won’t help them in the real world, while other countries have kids at an early age learn a trade.
Q: Have you ever travelled outside of the United States? Where, and how does life outside compare to that in the US?
A: I have traveled to a couple places like: Jamaica, Mexico and Grenada. Life outside of America is very poor in most places and the way of living is hard.
Q: What does the future hold for America?
A: I do not know, only America and the younger generation will know that.
Q: 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?
A: I am very up to date and interested in politics. It is good to know what is going on around the world. Politics is a very touchy subject and hard to pin point its path whether it’ll be positive or negative.
Q: How are you responding to the outbreak of the Convid-19 virus?
A: It is very sad and I am being very precautious of the company I keep.
Q: How are you handling this stay-at-home order?
A: Florida has not had a stay at home order, but I’m sure it’ll be hard.
Q: What keeps you going during these trying times?
A: Family is what keeps me going in hard circumstances.
Q: How can the government better handle the situation?
A: The government should’ve had everything shut down at the earliest stages of the virus being recorded in America.
Q: What are your hobbies or extracurricular activities?
A: My hobbies are staying in the house and resting on the weekends and, maybe catch a game or so on tv.
Q: How would you describe your philosophy of life? That is, how do you see this life and what principles get you grounded and moving forward?
A: Life is all what you make it and the company you keep. Some principles you should have are to be hard working, relentless, and hunger to have more than what you already have.
Q: Let us end this interview with a memorable quote from you. How would you describe yourself to the world?
A: I am…me!
