Jacolby Moore - Houston, TX Interview by Michelle Sicard Nomination and Photography by Pink Lilly Photography Issue 19 Inspiring Teens Magazine
The Nomination: Jacolby is a young man focused on dreams and goals. While in high school he managed to play Basketball, Football, run track and play tennis all while maintaining his grade. He is debating on which college he wants to attend but has is eyes on U OF H for Art Institute. As a backup plan he has Criminal Justice in mind.
I became interested in sports at the age of 5 years old. I started playing Basketball for the YMCA. When I was in Elem. School in the 5th grade, my cousin Brandon hit a 2 pointer in 3 seconds before the end of the game which tied up the game and I came back to make the final shot! My team and I was running around the court screaming and yelling we won! Yes! The YMCA teaches you values, respect, and morals for one another. I will carry that knowledge with me for life what I was taught by my coaches!
I plan on going to University of Houston and majoring in Architect with minor in Art. I will play Tennis and run track for UofH. In the future I see myself owning my own Architect Business and giving back to the community.
Always work hard and never let know one tell you, can’t follow your dreams. Dream big, strive for the star, have respect for one another, morals and values! Stay well-grounded and always remember the first law of nature is self- preservation.
To past time I like to play my PS4, play Basketball, cook and help out in my community. I play on line with my friends and family.
I’d like to own my own business/clothing line, second graduate from college with my BS degree and my Master in Art and Design.
One of my favorite talents that was not mention is swimming! In my family I have a brother and a cousin who became Lifeguards at the age of 15. I remember watching them both inspired me to become a Lifeguard! When I turned 15 years of age, I became a Lifeguard for Greater Houston Pool Management. I worked for GHPM for 3 years. I was employed with Safe Splash as a Lifeguard part time for 2 years. I am currently employed with Houston Swim Club. I have off campus duty every day, so I am able to work afterschool and on Saturdays. During my time as a Lifeguard I have saved 2 lives and truly love my job and would not trade it for anything!
