HC: Since you crossed, how has Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated impacted you? 

Tosh: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated has helped me in many ways. Being surrounded by such a great brotherhood of like-minded individuals inspires me to become a better man on a daily basis. 

HC: What’s the last book you read and what did you learn from it? 

Tosh: The last book I read was The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. What I learned from this book was that you should abide by four agreements in life which are: be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, don’t make assumptions, and do your best at everything.  

HC: What do you believe is a common misconception people have of you?

Tosh: I feel like a common misconception about me is that I’m an extrovert, but I’m actually an introvert. When I’m in public, I’m very social because I do enjoy people. But, I also enjoy my alone time; and I often need my alone time to recharge so that when I’m around people, I can be that social guy. 

HC: What makes the Gamma Iota Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated unique? 

Tosh: What makes the Gamma Iota Chapter unique is the fact that we’re so versatile. We have people in every facet of student life. We have people in the Student Government Association, Hampton University Athletics, the Royal Court...I could go on and on. 

HC: Who is your favorite music artist and why? 

Tosh: My favorite music artist is, without a doubt, Kevin Gates. His music impacted me during some very monumental times in my life. I feel like he has the most relatable music to me. 

HC: What are you looking forward to during homecoming? 

Tosh: I’m definitely most excited for the tailgate. It’s amazing to me that I’m actually on the other side now, and I’ll be able to experience the Alpha tailgate, known as the “Greatest of All Tailgates.” 

HC: We know you recently started a fitness program called “Mind, Body, Soul.” How do you think being physically fit affects your mental health? 

Tosh: Exercise is very important when discussing the relationship between physical and mental health. A little exercise a day can produce endorphins in your mind that act as natural painkillers to combat stress, anxiety, and depression that we deal with on a daily basis in college. Also, working out helps you know that you did something to make yourself better and instills discipline in you to become a better person. 

HC: Knowing that Greek life can be hectic sometimes, how do you remain grounded? 

Tosh: Yeah, it can get hectic. But, I think if you just prioritize the important things in life and always make sure that you’re staying true to the morals and principles that you live by, you’ll be good.
