“I just simply think I’m not made for the school system. At school you do things because the teacher tells you so. When I have a certain freedom I end up being way more productive. Take my act for example. I started about a month ago and whenever I feel like it I perform on the street. It is something I love to do and that is why sometimes I can practise for hours. I’m starting to get the hang of it. I have been going to school for the past 13 years of my life so when I’ll finish high school I don’t think I’’ll go to University.”“So what is it you wanna do when you finish?”“Work on my new act, be free and learn how to survive.”
