Me 'dancing' to Sarah McLachlan's 'Wonderland'

Jamez, 25

Cleveland, Ohio

English father and Nigerian mother.

College or university? Yep, I am at Baldwin Wallace University for my bachelor’s degree in sports administration and criminal justice.

Tiny Love Stories is a periodical featuring intimate stories about our family and friends. See the Tiny Love Stories archive here.

Significant other? No, I am currently engaged to girlfriend Ashley Rose, from whom I am expecting my first child in November.

If there was one thing you could change about your appearance, what would it be? I would probably be 100% redheads.

What is your signature dance move? I am a pretty strict guy, so I don’t really do any dance moves. I try to avoid any kind of beating of a move.

Is there a book that changed your life? Oh, yeah. I was about 10 when I read The Diary of Anne Frank. I couldn’t handle the speechless stare and tears of little girls going through that, and I was ready to give in to the madness of not wanting to suffer any more because I had made mistakes. I wanted to be strong for the kids, and read the book until my eyes were blurry, and my head was wet, from crying.

If you were your own ultimate superhero, what would you be? Actually, if I had to choose a superhero, it would be Aunt Poppy. I would make really smart moves, and avoid getting in trouble, or having to listen to horrible advice or what could be considered bad logic. I like to know the truth, and be able to bounce back.

Last piece of music you listened to? Sarah McLachlan’s record that she made last year, Wonderland.
