A SAFE PLACE TO HIDE
New Music and a New Attitude
Hello! Thank you for being part of Bsquared Magazine! How has anime has influenced your artistry?
Anime has most definitely influenced my drive and commitment to never quitting the journey that I am on. I often watch shows with protagonists that have gone through the most extreme amount of pain, yet stuck to what they believed in no matter the hardships. It has guided me in learning how to fuel my most intense emotions into my goals and cementing the fact that pain isn’t a setback, it’s a stepping stone for victory.
Tell us about your experience juggling life as a producer, model, and singer/songwriter.
It’s really fun! I’m the type of person that gets bored very easily with everything, so being able to jump from one section of entertainment to the next allows me to always be in the mindset of creating something new. I didn’t even plan on developing each skill, I would just get bored with one and find another, which I decided recently, to combine into what I do.
What motivates you?
Under no circumstances will I ever force myself to live a life where I feel like I’m just getting by and waking up to work because I have to. It’s not about being famous, it’s about my survival. I want to love being alive. Therefore, I need to live my purpose and this is it. Why should I settle for any less?
What inspires you to write music?
Anything that’s been super impactful in my life or even something I go through that I feel others can learn from. I’m very aware that entertainment means giving something close to yourself away to others and I want what I give to be positive.
Your greatest achievement so far?
Still sticking with this dream of mine. As I said before, I get bored easily, so the fact that I’ve been pushing for this since Jan. 2017 is an achievement within itself. I’m proud.
Any challenges along the way?
I’ve always been solo in all that I do and I have a handful of people I connect with within the industry, so staying motivated was definitely a struggle for a while. You just have to keep that image of what “making it” is to you in your mind, and those little falls and long days with no acknowledgment will feel like a step forward instead of a reason to quit.
What advice would you give someone following in your footsteps?
Never give up on what you believe your life’s purpose is! Everyone may not agree with you nor understand why you’re so fixated on this one goal or many goals, but as long as you love what you’re doing and understand the power of passion and manifestation, you’ll never regret giving it your all.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
At the top of my game of course! Saving people’s lives through my story and art. I’ve prayed for the best, so I expect no less.
