OpinionUP holds regular debates on current events and trending topics of interest every Tuesday at 8PM EST. Debate winners are selected by their fellow debate participants. Get to know the winner of the debate “Ethics & Morals”: @itswhateverthefuck
1. What’s your favorite topic to debate?
I like to debate LGBTQ rights. I’m bisexual and believe everyone should have a right to love who they want to love and if you don’t agree with it that dosent mean LGTBQ people should be hated on, locked up, or discriminated against. It’s possible not to agree with LGBTQ lifestyle and still associate with them and be respectful.
2. What is your biggest life goal?
My biggest life goal is to ultimately be happy. This includes having a stable job, a loving husband, and a happy family with children of my own. I also want to help children be adopted like I was.
3. Where’s your home base?
I was born in Massachusetts but now I live in South Carolina. I hope one day to move to Florida when I’m older and work for the Walt Disney World company after I am done with social work.
4. If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would travel to the UK. I have been there before but I have family there and my best friend lives there as well. Just being there makes me happy.
5. What is your ideal profession?
Social Work because it allows me to help people who have struggled through the same things as myself such as adoption, foster care, anxiety, and depression.
6. What’s your favorite quote?
“Tomorrow is just a dream away.” -Walt Disney
7. What do you like to do in your free time?
What don’t I like to do in my free time? I love hanging out with my boyfriend and planning vacations to Massachusetts, the mountains, the beach, and other places with him. I like to go bowling, out for walks, volunteer at the animal shelter, go to the movies, or just hang out and watch Netflix with some mixed drinks.
8. If you had a million dollars to donate to charity, which charity would you pick?
Planned Parenthood. People are trying to shut them down and make them less and less throughout the country. Women need Planned Parenthood, and not just for abortion. For STD testing, free pregnancy tests, and birth control. Woman have a right to choose as well, and the Republican Party will never take away our right to choose! Especially in cases of rape and incest.
9. Would you rather have a billion dollars or be president?
A billion dollars definitely! Being present is too much pressure and responsibility. I’d rather have a lot of money and be out of the spotlight.
10.What would you change about yourself if you could?
I would change the fact that I’m shy and have a huge amount of social anxiety. It’s made me feel like I don’t belong anywhere, and at times that feeling can be overwhelming.
