Hall said he became involved with activism after Hillside History Teacher Bryan Proffitt introduced him to social justice movements.

Hall revealed that he feels that his greatest accomplishment was the “Stop The Violence” walk to honor Hillside Senior Kaaylon Pamplin, who was killed during the fall semester.

He stated that he “publicly spoke on the issue of violence.”

“It feels good that I’ve shown myself capable,” Hall added.

Hall has also worked with Habitat for Humanity, and was a part of the Student Government Association State Conference where he did a presentation on community service.

Hall said that he is elated to be a “black male who isn’t focused on what others would expect him to be intent on, such as sneakers and girls.”

Hall then added that he dares to be different and that he prioritizes well. He makes time to participate in five different extra curricular activities: SGA, Kappa League, Ignite Freshmen Mentoring Program, Mock Trial Club and Debate Club.

Hall stated that there is a plus to “networking and getting closer to people of authority.”

Hall’s ultimate purpose is that “he wants to be remembered,” which was inspired by the rapper Curren$y who also “wants to live forever.”
