The Come Up: Alex Wiley

Dropping Out Of High School:

Alex Wiley: Yeah, I had no idea what I was gonna do. I basically went on winter vacation junior year, and I’ve been on a four-year vacation. I was failing all my classes, I was really fucking up, man. It’s hard to explain, because I don’t think I’m a stupid person, but man. There’s no real excuse, I was just really majorly fucking up in high school, and it was just clear; stay or go, there’s no way you’re graduating on time. I just kind of bailed, really. It’s not something I’m proud of, but it’s something that happened, and it was definitely a huge moment that changed the course of my life.

There was at least six months where I was just at home all day, not doing anything, and that was sort of the darkest period. And then this fun thing presented itself, and I got kind of good at it. And the rest was just building on top of that.
