Published on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 in , , , ,

Getting to know our Man of the Month...

D.O.L.L.S: If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?

Theo: Flying for sure! Because the sky just feels so free and without restrictions (I'd be able to travel and see the world).

D.O.L.L.S: If someone wrote a biography about you, what would you like the title to be?

TheoBe Yourself (You have more control of situations/circumstances than you think)

D.O.L.L.S: If we took a look inside your refrigerator, what would we find?

TheoPlenty of Snacks (fruit, veggies, tropical trail mix, PB&J, chips, bread, cereal), Ice Cream, Milk, and Water

D.O.L.L.S: How do you tackle stressful situations in your life?


Looking Towards the Future with our Man of the Month

D.O.L.L.S: What dream are you currently pursuing?
TheoGetting my Doctorate in Physical Therapy and practicing in physical therapy

D.O.L.L.S: What are the first steps you took to follow your dreams?

TheoThe first step I did was to apply to Physical Therapy School and Graduate from the program. Secondly, I have to pass my board exam and get liscensed.

D.O.L.L.S: What are some roadblocks that you have come across?

TheoThe roadblocks that I faced was the amount of course work I had to get done while staying active with volunteer work on campus and upholding my duties as a student leader.

D.O.L.L.S: Who are some individuals in your field you admire and would like towork with in the future?
TheoAs of right now I do not know. If I could work with another black male in the field at some point, that would suffice.

D.O.L.L.S: Is there anything that you’d like our readers to learn from you?
TheoThe greatest thing I can tell people is to always put GOD first in every goal or dream you have. The other thing I would like people to know is to always be yourself and never feel like you have to follow the norm. You are your own person and you will be surprised by how many people , like yourself, are drawn to you.

D.O.L.L.S: What advice do you have for young men your age?
TheoAlways be mindful that you are a role model to other people around you, even you dont know it. Whenever I get a chance to talk to black males, I always encourage them to strive for their dreams and let nothing stop you from doing them. We have to start changing the way people percieve us, so that the norm is not shock or amazement when one of us does well (doctor, lawyer, engineer, CEO, COO). Go out and affect a least one persons life and watch how that seed becomes a garden. 

D.O.L.L.S: At this point in your life, what makes you happiest?

TheoThe happiest point right now is how proud I made my parents with where I am now. Every time I see people come up to them and tell them something nice, I can tell that it makes them feel so good to know that this is their child. It makes me so proud and happy to know that I didnt not follow the road of another statistic.
Something that my mother said really put this into perspective. She mentioned to me one day that she thought that "she would only be a part of a hooding ceremony or medical graduation by association through one of her friends children. She never thought  that her own child would be in something like that and that she would be the mother of one of those children walking across the stage." Until she said that, I never knew how much that meant to her and my dad. That is something I will never forget!

D.O.L.L.S: What motto do you live by?
TheoGod 1st and always think/be yourself

D.O.L.L.S: How do you stay motivated to accomplish your goals?

TheoThe way I stay motivated is I know that I can always do more. No matter what your craft is, you can always use that craft to better other people and yourself.

D.O.L.L.S: What can we look forward to from you in the future?

TheoMy next goal is to eventually be able to participate in a mission trip every other year or every two years for those that need quality help and trying to provide some form of scholarship to young males trying to pursue a career in healthcare.

Special thanks to our Man of the Month Theo for being such an awesome role model and delivering an amazing interview!
