Southerner: What’s on your bucket list and why?

Frizzell: “The main thing is probably to travel to places and see stuff because I think other places in the world are really cool and really pretty. I want to see it before I die. Also, I want to go to a really remote place and just stargaze for a really long time. I am really into stuff like that.”

Southerner: Who do you admire in your life and why?

Frizzell: “Probably my dad because he says a lot of things that make a lot of sense to me. He gives us a lot of good life lessons, like how to live life and how to be respectful and stuff like that. He has also done a lot of things. He was in the military, so I look up to him a lot.”

Southerner: What’s your favorite quote and why?

Frizzell: “It would have to be, ‘There’s a million things I haven’t done, but just you wait,’ by Alexander Hamilton because I love ‘Hamilton’ first of all, and second of all, it kind of goes with what I want to do. I want to do so much, and you just shouldn’t underestimate people.”

Southerner: Who is your favorite superhero and why?

Frizzell: “I have to say, Superman. Well, either Superman or Spiderman because I watched ‘Superman’ a lot when I was a kid. But, then Spiderman because it’s become kind of a new thing, and the people in my life really like Spiderman, so I’m a little nervous that if I don’t say Spiderman they will be a little mad (Mark).”
