Meet Altrayvia “Tray”
Why is it important to give back to your community?
I think it’s very important in life to give back. I wasn’t always raised with everything I needed or wanted, so I’m appreciative for the things that I have. I’m aware that there’s a lot of people who haven’t been as fortunate as I have. Too often people ignore the fact that there’s help needed. I’ve never been homeless or felt like I needed to break a law to get what I needed, but I can understand why some people do. That’s why it’s important to me to give back whenever I can.
What is something you do well?
I try my best to make people’s day a little better with my smile and sense of humor. I also try to be the best person I can be, day in and out. I might make mistakes or fail along the way, but I’ll never give in to defeat. I’ll always try to be better.
What do you look forward to each day, or in the future?
Everyday there is an opportunity to learn something new, and that is what I look forward to the most. There is so much information out there that is yet to be discovered and a whole world of possibilities to strive for. It makes it enticing to wake up every morning and just learn something new.
What are the three things you can’t live without?
Everyone has those simple things that make them feel complete. For me, those things are silence, freedom, and books. I enjoy the silence to be able to think to myself and just enjoy that type of freedom. Books are another necessity sincere they offer the ability to go to new worlds, and maybe even lead to new discoveries.
