Interviewed by Rishika Garg: October 2020
What first got you into music?
When I was 5 years old, my parents put me in piano and I loved it so much. I used to write little songs and sing along so my parents decided to put me in singing too. A few years ago, I started doing guitar as well which I love.
What an average day is like for you?
Well, I recently re-started school a few weeks ago, however, I am in a half day program so that I have more time for music. On a typical day, I will go to school, then come home and do around 2-3 hours of music/ social media content. I also dance competitively so I will also have that most days.
Who are you inspired by?
Some of the musicians that inspire me include Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Jlo and many more. I’m inspired by anyone who has worked hard to the attention they got.
Do you sing in the shower? What songs?
Of course! The songs that I sing usually depend on my mood and what songs I saw on Tiktok that day, however, I’m always down for some Christina or Beyoncé.
One advice you want to give to young people/your fans?
I would say my advice to young people is to always stay motivated. I believe that motivation is one of the most valuable qualities a person can possess. I would recommend that everyone find something that motivates them whether that be goal setting, watching motivational videos or anything else. Personally, I like to watch videos of my favourite artists performing as it reminds me of what I’m working towards.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
I feel like the internet has definitely changed the music industry. If you think about some of the biggest celebs right now, many of them have risen to fame on the internet. Not only that, but we now use the internet to stream all of our music, watch artists live and even to buy an artist’s merch.
