Meet Brody, A First Semester Cast Member in Up with People from Texas!
Get to know Brody during his time on the road in the cast of Up with People with an
exclusive interview in this week’s Meet the Cast Monday!
Are there experiences in Up with People that have specifically impacted you?
For me, having the opportunity to go out into communities and see the change I’m making is what makes it all worth the while for me.
What’s your favorite song to perform?
My favorite song to perform in the show is ‘Home’ because my majors are biology and environmental science. As a little kid, I always loved going outside and into the world. I loved being a little outdoorsman. Seeing how much the wildlife is dying out now because of my actions and those around me is something I’m passionate about.
What would you like to do after Up with People?
I would like to go back to Kansas Wesleyan and finish my degree. After graduating and before entering the real world, I would like to come back to Up with People as either a Promotion Representative or as Vocal Instructor.
What is the most positive element about your generation?
I think this generation does a great job at speaking out on things that we find important in the world. I believe we have the power to act upon what others won’t, simply because they’re afraid to, or didn’t think their opinion mattered.
What is an issue that you feel very strongly about?
Other than the environment, it would be the immigration policies in America. I feel like we need to be making it easier for people who want to have a better life.
What would be a passion you want to follow or a dream of yours that you want to accomplish in life?
My dream would be to be as good and as much of a father towards my kids as my father was to me. I want to give them a world to look forward to as far as the environment goes.
Home no matter who you are no matter where you’re from
We gotta understand that it’s the only one we got it’s
Home no matter where you are no matter where you go
Everything you see everywhere you look around you you are home.
