Q. Who or what inspires you to pursue music?
A. I studied art until I was 19 and suddenly I asked myself if I would be happy for the rest of my life studying art. And I wrote a long letter to myself saying “are you scared to do music?” and then I started music.
Q. What is the biggest challenge you’ve had as being young in this industry?
A. I would say that I had to stay focused and prepare myself and my album for 2 years and half but nothing was official during that period.
Q. What inspires you to create your own path?
A. I think I try to see more things and I think the time I spend doing that and the process helps me to make my own path.
Q. Can you share any inspiring words to young people who read this?
A. Don’t even start if you think you can’t win because it's difficult for someone like me. It won’t be a problem if you're okay with money.
Q. How old were you when you knew this is what you wanted to do?
A. I think I was 19.
Q. How did you get to where you are today?
A. I think if you want something everything is possible with the internet. When I started my career, I got so much help from my friends. But, I just learned on my own through the internet.
Q. How would you describe your style?
A. Honesty. To compare myself with other artists, I think I show more of an honest side.
Q. What sets you apart from others/ makes you unique?
A. Same answer as above.
Q. What’s the most memorable thing that’s happened to you in your career?
A. I think it would be my first performance at my first gig which completely sold out. I wasn’t expecting anything but the cheers and energy from the crowd was so intense! That was an amazing experience.
