Check out her interview with Du'Lanci Vallie below.
What is your greatest strength as a professional?
My greatest strength I would say is my mind and the reason why I say my mind is because in order for me to get to where I want to be with my music / talent I have to have a disciplined mind that follows with my body.
Are you able to make a living with your music? If so, how were you able to attain a career doing what you love? If not, what do you do in order to fund your music career? What advice would give to someone who's interested in pursuing a career in music?
As a upcoming artist yes I’m able to make a living with my music. The main rule is setting a strong foundation to help you achieve money matters when it comes to your music such as promotion , studio time , videos shoot and so much more. But all will come back times 10 so never give up.
Why are you pursuing a career as a model?
I started modeling at the age of 15 for a model agency once I moved to the city I started to get into modeling groups and started to modeling for certain upcoming artists and popular artists.
What limitations do you have on photo shoots or fashion shows?
When it comes to photos shoots and fashion shows there’s no limitations I feel as if we should be able to express ourselves freely that’s the whole point of art in my eyes.
What would you consider your most successful or proudest moment in your music career, so far?
My most successful so far was my first music video “ Big Steppa” I was not expecting that many following gains , likes and views but that’s what comes with the process you have to expect the unexpected.
Everyone in life goes through adversity of some sort. Is there anything in your life that has any influence on the kind of songs you write? What is the most difficult thing you've had to endure on your path to becoming a musician?
The most difficult thing I had endured on my music journey was accepting that not everyone will support or show love and it taught me to love my own journey more and to enjoy every little moment because now I look back and realized that I gain so much more than what I thought. Trust the process is what I can say.
Is there anything you want to say to our readers?
Yes. Keep going no matter if you want it to happen then it will understand your inner power and control your mind so the body will flow, allow yourself to step out your comfort zone and be free. Love and light ASÈ.
