Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I grew up surrounded by music because of my mother and her side of the family. Throughout my whole life, music has been my number one passion and the one true emotive connection to getting to know myself as I continue to grow.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
The first concert I performed was in Poland, and I was seven years old. I was performing with a Jazz band for the first time. After that, I just knew that music was truly in my soul and heart.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
In order to thrive in the music industry, there are a few rules that I tend to follow. Firstly, BE YOURSELF! Be the original you, and don’t religiously follow clothing trends; try creating your own! Secondly, figure out what strengths you have as an artist, and ALWAYS show how much you can do– bouncing from genre to genre while experimenting is a great and awesome way of portraying your talent.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My mom. She is a musician herself, so I had no choice but to fall in love with music and the fun, adventurous, unexpected lifestyle that came along with it. She introduced me to so many musicians, and continuously finds new opportunities for me to perform or audition for something.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I am very blessed and fortunate to be where I’m at financially at my age, so I am constantly trying to give as much as I can to people who are less fortunate; for example, giving food to the homeless, as well as clothing, etc.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“A million people go through a million things.” Living in LA has been a hell of a ride for me. Moving to LA was an extremely unexpected and fast decision that I didn’t really choose to do, ironically. I started off studying Fine Arts at SDSU in San Diego, then I transferred to the Art Institute of San Diego and changed my major to Audio Engineering. Two months into that program, the school shut down due to bankruptcy, and that is when I was forced to move to LA.
When I first moved to LA, I was crying every day for 3 weeks. I was missing my mom, sister, and boyfriend at the time since I had to suddenly move away from all of them. Right now though, I honestly couldn’t be happier! Living a new and more hectic life in LA has impacted me drastically in positive ways, although the initial move was quite difficult since I was leaving friends and family. That initial sudden move triggered my songwriting and inspired me to write more songs.
