While it may not easy to switch schools, James says that he has become acquainted with the feeling of moving to a new school since he has had to move schools multiple times throughout his life. While he may be excelling academic wise, Drake says that he would rather do other activities although he admits that he loves gaining knowledge.
He used to play sports such as football and hockey, but he has placed less emphasis on them as of late, but he still finds time to roller skate. When it comes to activities, he shares many traits with others his age. For example, he enjoys playing video games, such as Call of Duty and Super Smash Bros. What he really likes doing is being a creative artist. He enjoys drawing and painting, when it comes to preferences he would like to draw things about people that would be unique.
Drake enjoys the friends he has at this school while at the same time cherishing his family, especially his mother who he says has always been extremely supportive. When asked about his most memorable moment, he states it was when he moved to Bishop, he says he used to be very shy and quiet when he got there, but since then he has grown in those areas. Drake says after high school he wants to do something that will get him traveling around for he would not wish to settle in for very long, or at least not for a while.
His future goal relates to a phrase that he likes from the movie, Ferris Buellers' Day Off, “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around you could miss it.”
