Fanta Dabo, Co-Editor In Chief

If people were given the opportunity to know everything there is in the world, to truly understand the very universe we live in, people would either choose to know everything or live forever.

Paint Branch senior Fanta Dabo would not take either option. Fanta remarks, “I would not take either option. Knowing too much can be bad for you, and I’m rather happy that life is temporary, allowing us to cherish more moments in life.” With such a thoughtful and reflective answer, Fanta truly reveals the person she is, and so much more.

Fanta’s friendly personality resonates with dogs over cats. She prefers them in the sense that dogs are friendlier and significantly more active than cats. Asked if she were capable of going anywhere in the world, Fanta says that Hawaii would be her choice as it “seems like a lovely place to visit.” With such an ecstatic way about her, Fanta is able to express an aura to those around her as she maintains the perspective that life is just a good day with even brighter days ahead.

Focusing on the brightness of her personality, Fanta says that her favorite season of the year is fall because summer is always too hot, and winter can get too cold. As for Spring, well, “It just rains a lot in the spring,” reports Fanta. As for what music might be playing as she enjoys those nice fall days, Fanta says that she enjoys various genres, ranging from R&B and Rap, to Afro-beats and Pop. A few of her favorite artists include Giveon, J.Cole, Polo G, Roddy Ricch, Brent Faiyaz, Burna Boy, Future, Conan Gray, Lil Baby, Rod Wave, Lil Durk, The Internet, and Tayc.

Fanta notes that her mother is someone who motivates her. She credits her with being a resilient single mother who had the strength to go to college even with all the struggles she had in life. Now Fanta, inspired by her mother’s journey, is striving to gain an internship, and eventually gain a job to manage once she’s graduated from Paint Branch Highschool. With how colorful and intelligent Fanta is as an individual, there’s no mistaking that she'll be able to accomplish what she intends to. No matter how you look at Fanta Dabo, it is clear that she has a bright future ahead of her.
