My name is Brandyn Phelps I went to Southwestern high school where I graduated with only forty-two kids in my grade. I was a 3 sport athlete in school playing soccer, basketball, and baseball. Friends, family, sports, music, and God are my main priorities in life. My first year in college I attended Vincennes University then transferred to IUPUC. Here at IUPUC I play on the basketball team where I have already met new friends and became very close with them. Values in life for me describe who you are as a person.

I listen to all sorts on genre on music mostly hip-hop which most people see as derogatory, but kids from my generation see it as art where other hip-hop artists are out there talking about their lives only in the music form. The reason why my generation relates so well to this type of music is because the people making art are relating it to their everyday lives where we as the listeners can also relate that to our everyday life. I don’t know why I developed such a love to music, but I have and it is a big part of me as who I am as a person. Playing three sports in high school sure did take a toll on my body but that is also encouragement to keep doing what I do best and that’s staying active. My junior year in basketball my team won a sectional title against the number two team in the state Edinburgh. That is probably the most memorable moment in high school where we as a team, family, and
