Ciara sends love to UC Riverside students through her Instagram account. 

  • Alizen:I remember accepting your friend request on Myspace back in 2008. How has your career shaped itself after becoming such an internet hit?
  • Christofer Drew:It’s absolutely amazing! I’m working hard and enjoying everything right now.
  • Alizen:You dropped out of high school before graduation. Do you have any regrets to that?
  • Chris:Nah, to me school is just a reason to brainwash kids, or, as I like to call it, “social conditioning.”
  • Alizen:I notice you’re a vegan! I’m an active supporter of PETA as well. Aside from working with them, how else do you plan on raising awareness for animal rights?
  • Chris:Well we’re putting a video on the website to tell kids more about it, why it’s better. It’s healthier, and I also put stuff up on my myspace profile.
  • Alizen:Your last CD came out in 2009. Can your fans expect a new one in the future?
  • Chris:Yes! I’m coming out with a new CD on August 24, but that’s a secret!
  • Alizen:Haha, no guarantees on keeping that one! Now because we work for Radical Parenting, an organization that teaches parents how to be BETTER parents through the teenage perspective, what advice do you have to offer?
  • Chris:This is a changing world. Kids are growing up faster with changing minds. All we have to offer is unconditional love and support, because love is what will take us places.

I walked downstairs to do the only thing I could think of to regain composure-
I made coffee.
