Dream Warriors Interview with Prince Perez

Webmaster

By Jessie C @jessie5_world

Hey guys, I am back again with another Dream Warrior, and a local Staten Islander. He is a musician, can sing, rap, song write and can even mix, master and produce his own music. He is 30 years old and a father of now three beautiful children. Please everyone give the warmest welcome on this really freezing day to the one and only Prince Perez.


Prince: Well thank you for that introduction and thank you for having me

Jess: Of course, no problem, but before we get into the meats and potatoes of the conversation; why the name Prince?

Prince: My mom always called me Prince after the singer as did a lot of girls I knew;  I always loved his music. I wanted to move on from what my name was before, which was youngBrighton.It was either Luis Perez or Prince Perez and I always hated my first name lol. I also wanted to rebrand myself musically, Prince Perez was kind of me doing that.

Jess: Aww how cute of a story. Is music a part of your life, What is your dream ?

Prince: My dream is to  live up to my potential and make music for money not just out of love.

Jess: What are some things you’d like to partake in ?

Prince: Anything that makes sense along my journey, be it acting, directing, being a brand ambassador I’m really just into creating dope things.

Jess: Sounds awesome, but with music, has it always been apart of your life?

Prince: Yes music has always been apart of my life. It started for me in church being in choir and then middle school being in chorus and drama class. Music was always huge and prevalent in my life

Jess: What made you just start putting yourself out there ? When did you start putting yourself out there?

Prince: I started sharing my music around 11 or 12. I started making mixtapes using my sisters karaoke machine, ha. How it worked was I would  record it on cassette tapes and I would let my friends listen; I thought I was the man.


Jess: Do you feel like you are strong person ?

Prince: I like to say I feel I’m a strong individual. Realistically you’re only as strong as your weakest link so it’s always an on going process to become better. 

Jess: What makes you go hard?

Prince: Love. The love of my family, my kids, my friends, my fans. If it wasn’t their love, their confidence, their desire to see me win ; I don’t think I would have the same determination. I want them to be proud of my hard work to see how much time and effort I’ve put into my dreams.

Jess: What are some accomplishments you are working on?

Prince: I’m wrapped up my first major album and I’ve been gaining new connections and business opportunities through this venture. I’m truly excited to see this through and continue to grow as an artist and as a person. 

Jess: Super happy to hear that, and exciting to see the changes and growth.
Yes, making connections and seeing/helping each other so everyone can win. Well I want to congratulate you on your official album and wish you so much prosperity in all upcoming ventures. 

Prince: Thank you so much, I appreciate that and thank you for having me.

Jess: Well guys there you have it, you can follow Prince on Instagram @theprinceperez.

James Rich Dream Warriors Interview

Webmaster

Written by Jessie C

Hey guys we are in the month of December and more holidays coming our way. Let’s focus more on loving and spending time with one another instead of fighting or complaining.

Now let’s get in the segment this week with our #DreamWarrior, this week we have another local. Remember guys like and share these interviews so we can affect more Dreamwarriors out there. Our Dreamwarrior is a multi-talented musician, a support to the community and a father to new baby girl. Everyone please give a warm welcome to Mr. James Rich.

Jess: Thank you for coming

 

James: Appreciate you having me a part of this opportunity

 

Jess: What is a Dreamwarrior?

 

James: Not to be basic but I would say someone who fights for their dreams. Someone willing to sacrifice what others won’t for their dream.

 

Jess: What are some things you’d love to partake in?

 

James: My dream is to make enough money so my mother can stop working.

 

Jess: I hear that, that’s a great dream and taking care of home after getting to that financial stability is awesome.

 

Jess: Do you feel a person that is considered a “Dreamwarrior” is someone that chases 1 or multiple dreams?

 

James: I think we should have multiple dreams so I think we should fight to achieve any and all dreams.

 

Jess: What makes you chase your dreams and not give up?

 

James: I continue to go after my dreams for the people who believe in me and the people who have sacrificed in order to give me the opportunity to chase my dreams. The haters as well, do it to laugh at them.

 

Jess: ha.. yes people that want you to do “ good” but not better than them are the worst kind. Their true intention is wanting you at a certain level and just plateau and stay there always.

 

James: Real stuff

 

 Jess: Now, what have been a plateau or a challenge in your life that has affected you in a major way?

 

James: Dropping out of college I think is my biggest obstacle and regret. I have a 2 year degree and I am about a semester or 2 away from a 4 year degree in psychology. I was also in debt for a long time because of switching majors and schools.

 

Jess: I definitely can relate and know the feeling…

What sort of advice can you offer someone that had the same experience?

 

James: Follow their gut, get out of your own head. Get out of your way and never give up. Don’t let others’ lives or expectations influence your decisions or your process. I did a lot of flip flopping when I was younger as most people do. I was trying to fit in and be someone others wanted me to be, instead of just doing what I wanted.

 

Jess: What are some of your dreams and anyone you admire in the music industry?

 

James: Since I was a I always loved cars, so buying my first brand new car was a dream of mine that I’ve accomplished. Future dreams would be to work with people I admire such as Diddy and Wiz Khalifa. I also want to run my own record label one day.

 

Jess: Sounds awesome.. I wish you nothing but the best and can’t wait to say, yea I interviewed that guy lol. Thank you so much for taking your time out and answering my questions.

 

James: Thank you for having me.

 

Well there you have it guys, no dream too big or small, keep making plans and getting those dreams accomplished. Outline some reasonable goals and start checking them off one by one. Always can find us on the website Stereotypeco.com and the link in bio on my ig page @jessie5_world and @stereotypeco. Love you guys and feel free to email or dm me for any questions or ideas, thank you guys… Peace and love.

Khiry White Dreamwarriors Interview

Webmaster

Hey everyone, you guys are now tuning in to the weekly DreamWarriors blog exclusively at Stereotypeco.com’s website. Today’s forecast is cold as hell ! Nonetheless still gotta get things done and announce our weekly featured Dreamwarrior. This man today is a young father, works hard, supports others and is working on some great big things. His thoughts and opinions are highly respected. Everyone please help me welcome Khiry White, who is a local Staten Islander.

khiry white

Jess:Thanks for joining us.. How are you?

Khiry: Thank you Jess for having me, a true honor.

Jess: Any dreams you’d would like to share?

Khiry: I would like to get to a level where I can become an employer and assist people with accomplishing their dreams.

Jess: What is a DreamWarrior?

Khiry: A DreamWarrior is someone with unbreakable persistence and contagious vision with the know how to execute.

Jess: Wow...that’s probably the best answer I’ve heard yet, very precise. Sometimes our executions may not be the most cleanest or in other words may not go as planned. But...speaking of that

When was there a time that things didn’t go as planned or some speed bump popped up in your life?

Khiry: Fatherhood. It’s a huge experience and game changer. I learn about myself and what I’m willing and able to do to improve myself as a father.

Jess: Any advice for the guys out there?

Khiry: You have to listen ALOT.. There’s a lot of pressure and learning but listening is important and especially learning who to listen to.

Jess: You ain’t lying ha.. remembering when my daughter was younger, not knowing so you value people that in your mind is seen as “experienced”. They help and can maybe assist in giving you an idea of how things will be or “should” be; you’ll learn from your own experiences to formulate your decisions.

Any lessons learned?

Khiry: The lesson to me, is try to remain balanced, not too rigid with things. Flexibility and openness to try new things are important.

Jess: yea a whole bunch of new things will come your way becoming a parent.. on a different note

What is something you’d like to enjoy yourself or become a part of?

Khiry: I’d like to learn about business developing, application development but to do that I need to work on my self confidence and put myself out there more.   

Jess: a bit networking and making connections ? 

Khiry: yes that’s a part of it...but more in consistency. In order to progress steadily, your consistency has to be steady as well.

Jess: What makes you to continue to go after your dreams?

Khiry: I’m pushed by fear currently, unfortunately. I want to evolve past that but right now I just have standards for myself.

Well folks there you have it, interview with Mr. Khiry White. Thanks again for you having to take the time out of your schedule. Good luck with everything, guys the link will be in my bio under #DREAMWARRIORS blog. You can always get updates on the website Stereotypeco.com, their Instagram stereotypeco and as well as mine jessie5_world. Peace and love guys.

Khiry: thanks for having me

Jodi Dareal Dream Warriors Interview

Webmaster

Written by Jessica Coromina

Hey guys thanks for joining me on this fall/winter day. As you already know each and every Wednesday we have this segment called Dream Warriors. We are going to change our drift now and now start to focus on happier times within our season. I have an artist in many ways, shapes of forms.  Beautiful woman inside and out and she uses the beauty of art to express herself. She’s a local artist that you may know, Staten Island’s own Jodi Dareal.

JODI DAREAL

Thank you for coming and what can you say your Dream in the whole wide world?
Jodi: I love to travel. My dream is to see the world and have my art in every gallery or wall. On one side, I’m already living my dreams. I do what I love for a living. On the other side, I want to share it with the world.

Jess: I love that, sounds amazing. I’ve always a liking for art.




What is a DreamWarrior?

Jodi: A Dream Warrior is a person who fights for all dreamers. It’s a person that can see the talent in others and encourage them to pursue their passion. It’s a person that gets knocked down 10 times and gets up 11. It’s a person that hears the words no or not good enough and keeps pushing away. There are no locked doors.

Jess: Wow that’s very powerful and so true. The object of a dreamer should not only for your success but want to bring others to the top as well.

What are things you’d like to partake in ?

Jodi: I like community projects, as well as working with other talented artists. I also loving coaching. I teach swim classes all over Staten Island and currently coach for Trident, a local swim team. So when I’m not working, I’m probably eating or sleeping. Being and Entrepreneur is a 24/7 job. But I wake up loving everyday.

Can you mention a time where there was a turning point in your life?

Jodi: I used go hard for the rap game. I’d like to say that I no longer rap. But that wouldn’t be true. Music is in my veins. But it took the end of a 12 year friendship to make me change course. The pain I left when I lost my best friend made me not want to do music anymore. It was a hard decision to make. Something I still struggle with today. I stop going to events as much. I pretty much lost all faith in people and music wasn’t the same. Art helped me break out of my dark times. It helped me regain my focus. But not a day goes by when I don’t think about the music family I lost and deep it wounded me but I had to keep pushing. I had to prove that I didn’t need them. I had to show myself I was worth it.

 

Jess: I’m sorry to hear that unforeseen circumstances. We all have our dark times and sometimes spiral downward. Maybe a really long time or maybe just for the moment. Either way it’s very brave and honorable to realize when you do and admit it; also working from that experience as a strength.

Do you feel you are a strong individual?

Jodi: Yes. Would definitely consider myself a strong individual. Growing up, I was always trying to be one of the guys. The tomboy. And as I got older, it seemed like men were always trying to put me in a category. Being a woman in a male dominated world is difficult. People will always try to label you or assume you’re something you’re not when they don’t understand you. And regardless of what life has thrown at me, I’ve always had to grab life by the balls attitude. Excuse my French ...

Jess: Well, I get your French. I can relate to the woman in a man’s world for sure. Always have to make a name or an impression 10x harder than most males do.

What can someone get from experiencing what you did, what can you tell them?

Keep your head up. You’re gonna lose a lot of friends chasing your dreams. But the ones who really care will push you to do better. The ones who truly care you’ll know because they’ll be right by your side helping you every step of the way.


Jess: Girl you couldn’t had said it any better. It’s getting lonelier as you progress and increase in your levels.


Any lessons you feel like you learned?

Jodi: That experience made me a lot more closed off. It took me to a dark place. Cried for months over it. It made me trust less. These days I rarely join group projects I’m always worried they are going to stab me in the back. Dark, I know. It sucks, but it’s good in a way. In business, it’s hard to know whose right and whose wrong. However, the knowledge I gained from the experience has changed me for the better. I used to worry about leaving people behind. But when I realized they didn’t care if I got left behind, I decided being selfish in this situation was ok. It’s ok to want better for yourself even if the people around you disagree. It’s ok to put your needs in front of others any once in a while. 

Jess: I agree completely, we woman are emotional creatures and we care too much at times, naturally. When you are genuine and have a big heart, you just want to be there for people. When others aren’t consistently taking and not contributing, kind of have to cut it loose.

Jess: Well this was a great interview, an eye opener for most. I want to thank you for your time. 

Jodi :Thank you for having me.

Jess: Guys keep checking us out, every Wednesday, same place same time. Have an awesome and amazing rest of the week. Remember always invest in yourself, either in your knowledge, health or wealth. Adioooooss.
