Hey y’all! My motivation behind this segment is to acquaint y’all to some of the most inspirational men I know. On one random Wednesday of each month you’ll be introduced to another “Bro”, get to know him, and gain a little knowledge. Let’s get started!
Meet: Jordan Brownstein
Olivia: What school do you attend?
Jordan: “I’m a senior at Arundel High School”
Olivia: Describe your dream girl.
Jordan: “A classy girl with nice curls :)” –FUN FACT: Jordan is my boyfriend
Olivia: What’s something that makes you unique?
Jordan: “I’m a very open minded person. I’m willing to listen to all people, even if their opinions are on the opposite end of the spectrum when compared to mine”
Olivia: What are your favorite sports teams?
Jordan: “Baltimore Ravens and Orioles, Washington Capitals”
Olivia: What kind of music do you listen to?

Olivia: What’s something you can’t live without?
Jordan: “Can’t live without my girlfriend Olivia… or football”
Olivia: What do you find yourself doing often?
Jordan: “Reading a good book or watching film from my football games”
Olivia: Twitter or Instagram?
Jordan: “Twitter because I can get quick updates about my favorite teams”
Olivia: What are your social media links?
Olivia: What advice would you give to athletes trying out for high school sports?
Jordan: “Before going out for a team, you need to ask yourself whether you are fully committed to it. If you aren’t, find another hobby because you’ll be wasting your time as well as the team’s time. If you are ready to make the commitment, the next step is to put the work in. Every decision you make should be in the best interest of yourself and the team. Ask yourself “Will this make me better? Will this benefit the team?” When you’re trying out, all you can do is give your best effort in everything you do. Don’t worry about what you can’t control. If you give it your all and you end up not making the cut, hold your head up high. There is nothing to be ashamed of. The coaches hate making cuts, trust me. The real work begins if and when you make the team. You need to push yourself even harder than you did when you were trying out. Go out and show the coaches that they made the right choice in putting you on the team. Basically, if you give 110% effort in everything you do, you’ll be successful not only in trying out for a sports team, but in all aspects of life.”
