Interview with Izwan Azir Saleh (@izwanazirsaleh)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I always wanted to be a journalist. For me, a journalist is an exciting career. The job requires me to meet new people with new stories every single day. From these stories, I can learn many things to improve my life. I got the chance to really understand the need of people around me, their concerns and I can try to help them in any possible ways. That’s the uniqueness of becoming a journalist. You learn new things, every day throughout your career. Furthermore, I was once a news presenter on national TV. This is a perfect combination. I went out to search for the news and I have the chance to present it to viewers!

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

As a news journalist, I used to be given challenging tasks to cover important events. Among the most crucial task given was during the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 which happened in March 2014. I held the responsibility of carrying out the first live broadcast throughout the day to bring the latest developments in that unprecedented incident. I believe that I did not only help unveiled the shocking news to everyone across the country but also to dig for a simple answer about that flight. I was then sent to Australia to hunt for the latest news and to get in touch with officials on the updates of the searching efforts. After that, the excruciating incident of Malaysia Airlines MH17 which follows four months after again has brought me as a major broadcaster who reported the incident live throughout the night. Pleased to carry out the duty as a professional, I also managed to successfully cover stories for both visits to Malaysia by President of the United States, Barack Obama in 2014 and 2015. When “Arab Spring” strikes in 2011, I immediately flew to Cairo, Egypt to espy the uprising. Apart from this, i was also assigned to the Darfur region of Sudan in 2010, where extreme poverty and tribal clang causing a serious humanitarian crisis.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

I always a believer in work-life balance. Working hard is ok but most importantly, working smart as well. Look at the deeper impact of what you do every day; how does your work make life better for other people? How could you add more meaning to what you do every day? These are important questions, so spend time thinking deeply about them. If you feel that your boss is assigning more work than you can handle, then schedule a private meeting to discuss the issue. Let the management know that your excessive workload is leading to burnout. Come prepared with some options that could be considered for shifting certain tasks or projects to someone else.

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 late father. He was the one who supported all he can offers for me to achieve my dream to become a successful journalist. I still remember in 1989, when I was still in my 3rd grade of elementary school, I got selected to represent my school in the inter-district storytelling competition. Of course at that age, I have less confidence to face other competitor’s various schools. But no matter how tired he is from his hectic office matters, he will summoned me to stand in front of him every single night and listen to my script of the story. He would then offered his advice and corrected my presentation. That year, I was the champion for the inter-district storytelling competition.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

Keep striving and giving your very best. I will forbid myself to easily feel satisfied with my achievement, but I keep telling myself that there are lots of other things I can do for the betterment of my community and the rest of the world. Maybe minimal, but that’s a good start to achieve greater success.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

‘Challenge what the future holds’ This came from a song lyric by Desree, ‘You Gotta Be’. As we know how challenging the world nowadays, we can’t be stuck at a point and feel good about it. We must keep challenging ourselves to reach beyond our imagination and routine.

Interview with Limara Meneses Jimenez (@limarameneses)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I discovered that I have the talent to express myself in many ways beyond my personality and also that communicating with others comes very easily to me.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

My first project as an actress was like a call from the heavens. The character that I played was the spouse of one of the best international singers during the 40s-50s named “Bartolome Maso Moré” (Benny Moré) and this man was a friend of my Grandparents and my father was born the same day as Benny and was named after him Bartolo. I was only 16 years old when by chance I went to the audition, seeing myself surrounded by very important and well-known actresses did not cross my mind what was about to happen, after hours of audition they made me one last call to tell me that I would be the actress who would play the character. On October 1, my birthday, I was given the greatest gift and responsibility I had ever had, the script for my first movie. From then on my life changed completely from being a simple actress in search of a character to being Limara Meneses the actress of the moment. There are things in life that we are not able to understand, this story is one of them. Too many coincidences? No, I would say it was predestined to happen.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Colleagues and friends, be constant, curious, meet and look for life stories, do not hold on to anything, let everything flow, let go, accept the NOs and forge a castle of Yes, but a yes of growth for the next step. Prepare your body and your mind, embrace your reality, and accept it, interpret the silences and storms that surround you because that is where creativity is. Do not look outside, and do not look guilty, everything you need to achieve your goals and not burn yourself it is within you it is in your environment create awareness and go for it.

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? 

If I am going to talk about a specific person from the beginning of my career I cannot say a single name I have had the support of many people in each step of growth in my professional career the first ones are my parents who were always there from minute one later I had friends who introduced me to the path, she was Thalía Veloso and other friends Alegnis Castillo and Judith Gonzalez who supported me during my studies at the University so that I could carry out my professional work and well throughout my life. Well, I also met Rosa Marquetti that supported me to be the actress of one of the most important and internationally recognized works, Chico y Rita. When I meet my husband, from then on I can say that he is the person who has given me the most support today to achieve all the goals and objectives that I am achieving right now, if I am going to define all that I said with him the name of a person, it would be my husband. Ten years ago, he is the person who has believed in me and has given me all the tools to grow and not only professionally but also spiritually, emotionally, and as a human being that somehow when you have these three well-founded elements, success is added.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

Using my influence on social networks, I have created a platform in which I listen, support, and give a voice to mothers, through successful colleagues who have an important social reach from conversations where we analyze, highlight, influence and share from our experience the path of motherhood in today’s woman from all perspectives. This has led to the uncovering of that pressure valve imposed by society when it comes to the voice of mothers and creating awareness in the minds of these mothers where understanding, solidarity, and generosity have begun to emerge.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

I am an immigrant mother of three daughters. I have been able to discover the complexity of this wonderful process and at the same time the courage that gives you knowing yourself alone and the need to move forward and create the foundations for a solid and healthy future so that they become conscious and consistent people. In the middle of this process where I have seen myself countless times sigh deeply, the phrase that saves me is just this. “Ser mamá es… De Mother!”

Interview with Jay Kaes (@jaycaes)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

JAY KAES emerges to brighten the urban or private environment through wall murals. I seek to motivate the owner or the people watching with pieces of art loaded with modern references and meaning. I am addressing current issues to contribute something positive to society.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

One day Sony contracted me to do a mural for Louis Tomlinson last album release and it was going to be live in Facebook worldwide, I started the work as any other job but rapidly things start to be special, lots of fans came to the wall to watch me painting and my phone didn’t stop making noise, Instagram will crash when I opened and couldn’t use my phone till hours after I finished, by the time I finished my inbox was full with people all around the world congratulating me for the job and telling me nice things, It was a really motivating moment as it was the first time working for a celebrity and have such as impact with my work.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

One of the things that keep me going is to follow my instinct, independent art jobs are that kind of jobs that don’t come with the security of a regular job, so you really need to motivate yourself by staying away of the hype and thinking in the future while you don’t stop the creativity. Creativity is something that you need to train every day but that doesn’t mean you need to constantly produce, the most important thing for me to not burn out is to find the balance between quantity and quality.

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? 

I have the help of many people in my way and if there is one to stand out that will be my father. While no-one believes if me to pursue an art career, he was always motivating me with nice words. The day I decided to emigrate from Spain to the UK He told me “take what you have and make it shine. Be proud of yourself”.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

When I paint giant murals in cities around the world I always think about the location and the story of the place where I’m painting so the murals will reflect and motivate the people around them.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

My Art direction teacher in the university will see me anxious about other people getting success with similar ideas than mines only because they have the financing, so one day He stopped me and tell me, Jay in this world if you really want to do something, if you work hard enough for it you will achieve it, doesn’t matter your economical background, the only difference money will make is that it will make you achieve your goals faster, but in the other hand weaker, when you work by yourself in achieving your goals you will achieve them later in time but that strong that no ones can take them from you.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

The most interesting story has to be when I went to Hawaii and ended up going to a rave I didn’t want to go to. I met a performer in the crowd not knowing he was a performer then started talking about what I do and he knew who I was and asked if I wanted to come backstage. So I did and hung out with him (hi I’m a ghost) and Snails, two huge producers. I’ve become best friends with Hi I’m Ghost after that.

I throwback to school drives and donate to various charities.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

“Live above Doubt “ music and I are the most relevant. Coming from a family of musicians and not singing like a bird or playing Mozart on various instruments sucked, from a father and mother not being around I didn’t have much of a confidence boost coming up. Music freed me from that, depression, anxiety, not feeling good enough. All of that changed with the music . “Hard work, Dedication and love . “ and I cannot stress enough. “Put God First. Without these, I’m in a maze.
