d.RT: Who or what inspires you?
Andrew: My mom. She is the one who pushes me to keep trying and to not give up. She is always working hard to make sure I follow my dreams and affirms that I am a leader and that I can do anything as long as I work hard.
d.RT: If I could be a hoodie on any person—celebrity, influencer, athlete, whomever--who would it be and why?
