Ares Amani

My name is Ares Amani. I am a 13-year-old honor student with a 4.0-grade point average. My chosen sport is Soccer. I worked hard and earned my position on the top teams. I am not afraid to aspire for my dreams and pay the price it takes to perform and achieve. I learn from my losses and win with grace. The Journey requires sacrifice, perseverance, discipline, and faith. My daily schedule is always challenging and I am no stranger to pressure.

With a little help from my dad, I created the “Embrace The Journey” NFT collection. I am excited about the power of web 3.0 technology and the potential it has to empower people to potentially fund their dreams. It seems apparent that as we post our lives to social media that those platforms use our precious moments to profit while so many of us need to fund our ambitions. I prefer to share my moments as NFTs, allow others to enjoy them as part of their collections, fund my dreams, help others who strive for their best (Achievers), and learn about entrepreneurship.

This is one of my favorite videos. My dad put this together for me. He films my games and we review what I did well and what I can do better. I was really surprised by how he edited this with music and replays. He gets up at 4 am to do these kinds of things for me. I am grateful. To be honest, at first I was really shy about having my videos out there for the world to see.

Violin practice

Dad snuck up on me practicing and insisted on filming. I am afraid that every time he does, it will end up on Youtube. It did.

I like this piece. It is challenging and sounds so nice when you play it correctly. Mom wants me to play for the youth symphony. I am not sure when I would have time.

Gymnastic highlights

Okay so, dad was up at 4 am again apparently. He said that he made this video as means of motivating me. This year was tough due to conflicts with my soccer, school, and I had to be quarantined due to COVID-19 exposure. I missed so much practice and that frustrated me. Dad said that I am learning something about how to deal with unfair situations.
