CONCERNING “CRUEL”, HIS TUBE REVEALING HIS SEXUAL ASSAULT
“This song is about cruelty in the world and resonates with personal stories from my adolescence when I was assaulted or harassed. It is about being completely free from other people’s judgment and taking every emotion as it comes. “
MUSIC AS A REAL THERAPY
“It is important for me to be transparent with regard to mental health. I am hyperactive and it is not everyday easy to live with this disorder. Music is a kind of therapy for me because I have the opportunity to express myself freely. What people don’t really know is that I’m also a painter so the two disciplines really help me find a balance in my life. “

Exactly 5 years ago. I was totally lost, I was lonely, had recently been raped. Dealing with depression and had kind of lost hope on my dream of becoming an artist. I decided to compete in this singing competition and never did I think I was gonna win that competition and it would all lead to where I am today. So crazy. Dreams do come true guys! Just have to believe in yourself and keep moving forward. ???????? ✨link to the full performance is in my stories.
USE YOUR PLATFORM TO DO SOMETHING IMPORTANT
“Everything that is depicted concerning beauty, whether in magazines or on television is false. I try to do my best to use my social networks to show that everything that we see in everyday life does not is not necessarily true. Life is not a competition, we are all beautiful as we are and I want to share this with the people who follow me. ”
BE A WOMAN IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TODAY
“I do my best not to feel the pressure to be perfect. I just want to live my life, to be happy and I think a lot of women in this industry need to realize this. It’s important that music artists say what they think without fear of repercussions. As a woman, I think the thing to do is to create your own rules so that you can evolve and gain confidence in a project. “
