If you could write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?
Anthony: If I had to name a book about my life, I would call it Recipes for Overcoming Obstacles. For every obstacle I have come across, I always research ways to find a solution and overcome them. It would be very similar to a cookbook with different life lessons and how to go about it.
What advice would you give to your teenage self?
Anthony: As you get older you realize anything you want to accomplish you have to work hard for it. Nothing will come to you easily. You may feel alone at times, but you are never alone, and it is ok to ask to help from your friends when you need it.
What’s a trip that changed you, and why?

What’s one thing you’re really bad at? And one thing you’re really good at?
Anthony: It is really difficult for me to learn languages, so I focus on learning people’s cultures like their history and food, in order to connect with people.
You’re a cook! What’s your favorite meal to make and why?
Anthony: My favorite meal to make is pizza from scratch! I started making it by hand when I was 13, and I have not stopped since. I love to cook for others, and everybody loves pizza. There are so many different toppings that everyone can enjoy their own style.
Is cereal soup? Why or why not?
Anthony: Cereal is cereal, I define soup as ingredients being boiled until their flavor is released. Cereal can have a soupy appearance but is still not categorized as soup.
What would the world be like if it was filled with male and female copies of you?
