CHP: Who inspires what you wear? 

I just wear what my older brother hands down to me. I don’t really think about making a statement or anything like that, I just dress to fit the weather.

CHP: Do you imitate anyone with the way you wear your hair? 

No, I am only who I want to be. I am inspired only by the lack of necessity to wash my hair.

CHP: What inspires your outfits?

Just personal taste, I feel it’s important to just be yourself. I guess my friends influence my clothes a little bit. Just never let your mother tell you how to dress.
