1. Considering all your experience with In Progress, what is one achievement that you personally are most proud of? Why is this achievement important to you? What does it represent?: What Im most proud of is learning to take my time on my cleaning tasks. Im proud of a couple songs they are called Boring, Amazing, When My Time Comes and one that isn't named yet that I made with my little brother Marcellou and my older brother Goldie. It was hard finding a beat and finding my rythum. Like how to stay on beat. It was hard to record in between cleaning tasks and other people recording. I clean because I like that I get a check.
