Photo location: I had my photo taken at the Cultural Wall on Long Street. I would pass it often growing up, and seeing local African-Americans doing amazing things inspired me, so I had to highlight it. Also, one of the people featured on the wall is my former neighbor.

Home front: There are six of us. My parents are Henry Warren Jr. and Candace Warren, and my three brothers are Henry, Harrison and Carter.

Favorite subject: Chemistry. It’s intriguing to learn about the natural world at the molecular level.

Least-favorite subject: Calculus, because there’s a lot to remember and the problems can be very time-consuming.

Prized possession: My camera. I have always enjoyed taking pictures of people, or different things I find.

Favorite book: It’s definitely “The Giver,” by Lois Lowry. It was the first book that taught me to embrace my differences. I didn’t have to fall in line with all my peers, and that’s OK. It’s the first time I felt comfortable with who I am as a person.

Favorite movie: “Now You See Me,” a movie about optical illusion in which nothing seems to be what you think it is. The movie gets better every time you watch it because there’s always something you missed.

Favorite television show: “The Office” is humorous, but also highlights normal, everyday lives. It gives you a different perspective on how a “normal” life doesn’t have to be monotonous.

Favorite musician: I have listened to Sam Smith’s albums on repeat since middle school. Whenever I need to focus or relax, I turn on his music.

Favorite animal: Golden Retrievers. There isn’t a sentimental story why; I just find them really cute.

Essential app: My calendar app. I am absolutely terrible at keeping up with paper planners, so transferring my events to a digital platform was the best thing I could have done.

Favorite home-cooked meal: Baked spaghetti with meatballs. It’s extremely good, and it reminds me of home. My dad prepares it most of the time.

My cooking specialty: Definitely chicken fried rice, a simple and hearty meal to prepare.

Favorite restaurant: O’Charley’s. After every event I have (award ceremony, dance recital, you name it) my family goes there to celebrate. It’s become a staple for us, almost a tradition. My favorite thing is their potato soup.

Guilty pleasure: Definitely brownies and ice cream. But it’s not an occasional thing at all.

Proudest sports moment: Scoring in a basketball game after two months of not playing. I ran into some problems with my health, and I had to stop playing
