About the Contributor
Zachary Kamba, Staff Writer
Zachary, also known as Zach, says that his favorite season is one that is coming up, fall. His favorite season has two things appreciated by Zach. Those two are his birthday which happens this month and the ending of the summer, a season he says just gets too hot. Zach enjoys a lot of things but some that stand out would be his enjoyment of movies and legos. When asked what was the best gift he had received, he responded, “The best gift I got was a set of legos that made a car for my sixth birthday. I loved legos then and still do.” And his favorite movie is a childhood classic, The Polar Express. Traveling is very important to Zach. Europe is his favorite place to vacation because of how much family he has there and the time they get to spend together. A place in Europe he has not been to but would like to visit is the Netherlands. He says that the last time he was in Europe he missed out on a chance to visit, so he is very eager to go when he gets the chance. Music is a big part of Zach’s life and a song that gets him going is “Hellcat SRTs,” which he says he likes “because it's lively.” His favorite solo artist is Corinne Bailey because of the R&B music she makes. As for what title he would give a song that represented his life, he says, “It would be ‘Nothing Crazy’ because nothing crazy happens to me.” Two artists he would love to eat lunch or dinner with would be Jay Z or Childish Gambino.
