Five Questions with Litzy Chavez


1. What song would you say describes your adolescence?

Concerto in E Minor, Opus 4 No.2: II. Largo by Rachel Prodger. Honestly, it’s not much of a song, but it is a classical song. It’s pretty much like I was feeling like the villain of my own story [for the] majority of my adolescence.

2. After looking back at your past experiences, what did you learn from them and how did it make you become the person you are today?

I honestly just learned that not everyone is going to be there for me. I can always depend on one person or a friend, but I can’t always depend on them because friendships will ten to crumble. I just go with it and whoever I lose, I lose. It won’t affect me as much as it did before.

3. What problem in the world would you like to solve?

There’s a lot in the world that needs to be solved. Theres still poverty, some countries need clean water, there’s a lot of injustice, theres a lot of discrimination against the LGBTQIA+ community. I feel like if I just fix one problem, it wouldn’t be enough. I would like to fix everything.

4. If money were no object, what would you be doing with your life?

I would be relaxing. I wouldn’t be as stressed. College requires money, being independent requires money, if money was basically not an object, I wouldn’t be stressing over the future.

5. If you were stuck on a desert island and could only bring three items, what would they be?

A medical kit, a trusted friend, and matches. I wouldn’t be able to depend on myself to be on a desert island so a friend would be better.
