At the 5:21 mark, Ikenna Azuike started reiterating things I continuously tell myself; follow your passion.

I may be struggling financially, but I know that I am in love with all of my archiving, community organizing, (un)learning, and sharing. I have never been bored and will only crave for more as I grow older. When I’m told that my ‘extracurricular activities’ are a waste of time, I use those harmful words as a motivation – I feed my monstrous drive with negatives in order to show people they are wrong.
