Looking Towards the Future with our Man of the Month

D.O.L.L.S: What dream are you currently pursuing?

D.O.L.L.S: What are the first steps you took to follow your dreams?
Angelo: In order to pursue my music and poetry dreams I have released a mixtape entitled “Eye Declare War” and participated in regional and national poetry competitions. To pursue my career in higher education I currently work at a junior college as an Academic Specialist and plan on starting my Masters program in Higher Education in 2012.

D.O.L.L.S: What are some roadblocks that you have come across?
Angelo: I’ve had people offer false promises and attempt to discourage me but I just use that as fuel
 to keep pushing.

D.O.L.L.S: Who are some individuals in your field you admire and would like to work with in the future?
Angelo: In the realm of music I admire Phonte, Musiq and J Cole. They are all inspirations to me. In the spoken word field I greatly admire CP Maze and Black Ice, both of whom I’m good friends with. And lastly, in higher education I look up to Boyd Jones, the Director of Campus Programming at Winthrop University.

D.O.L.L.S: Is there anything that you’d like our readers to learn from you?
Angelo: I’d want them to know that the only limits to what we can do are the ones we put on ourselves.

D.O.L.L.S: What advice do you have for young men your age?
Angelo: My advice is to realize that we’re the next generation of great male role models and live life like the world is watching.

D.O.L.L.S: At this point in your life, what makes you happiest?
Angelo: Being able to wake up every morning and to have loving friends and family around me.

D.O.L.L.S: How do you stay motivated to accomplish your goals?
Angelo: I stay motivated by being around others who are also motivated and concentrated on their goals.

D.O.L.L.S: What can we look forward to from you in the future?
Angelo: This year I plan to release a poetry cd and 2 music projects and am co-founding a mentoring program entitled Project D.R.E.A.M. with my good friend Doug Pearson. Every day I post life snacks on twitter which are affirmations and inspirational quotes I come up with.  My Eye Declare War mixtape is available for FREE download at melodikrukus.bandcamp.com.
