and you know, some other stuff that I'm not allowed to talk about yet, but some good exciting stuff coming out. How do you feel about the latin market taking over the real world market now? As far as like the opening doors for y'all now? Well, I think, you know, I mean, I think taking over a still a strong phrase that I wish, what is the case, But I think you're right about like opening doors because I think we've been underserved. There's been so many, many years right in the, in the demo, I don't think necessarily has been uh represented uh, as well in any element, whether it's tv film and I think it's changing and I think it's heading in the right direction, but we still got some big strides to go. So, you know, ultimately that's what I'd love to be able to do to, to be in a position to create more opportunities and tell more of our stories and you know, hopefully be appreciated that for that. You're doing it. You position yourself, you've given a lot of hope because I know there's a lot of, you know, latin kids that's watching like how can I be like Mario Lopez, what what did he do that I could be doing to try to help myself. So what kind of advice would you give to the youngsters out there that's watching you? That may be inspired to be who you are? Yeah. You know, um, uh, I'm tripping out with a good host. You are man. Like you're very natural having conversations like, damn, I, you know, I think I was like, thanks good with it right now, they can feel very casual, I know it's just very impressed and uh, anyway, not the segue, but you know, look at the end of the day, I'm a mexican kid from truly vista, right? That's the border town of Tijuana. I'm first generation here. My parents are immigrants. So if like if I can do it, anybody can do it. There really are no, no barriers out there. And so I like to live by the mantra. You know, if you work hard, you stay vote, you stay focused and you do the right thing, then the right things will happen for you. But I think being persistent, being disciplined is an attribute that's uh, it's missing a lot these days and, and it sounds simple, but it really will pay off towards the end.
