What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is my escape from reality, it makes me happy. When i feel down i pick up my headphones and i feel better. I sometimes make a whole song out of that mood. I get lost in my vibe when i start to create music and can go for hours and forget to eat even. Music is everything to me.

What is your music dream?

I wish to become the biggest musician in the world. I want my music to travel far and wide. I want my music to heal people and be a guide just the same way music is therapy for me. I wish for the same when people listen to my music. I have always had this dream since i was very young. I would sing around the house with a remote control in my hand pretending that i was in front of more than 50,000 People. I still do that till today and it feels really good, the mind is an amazing part of the body. It can make you feel good even with an imagination. I always feel very accomplished whenever i have my concerts in my head. But i keep in-visioning it and it will happen someday.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I would travel around the world to the very poor areas that lack basic amenities and first provide electricity which is very important, provide good water and food. Then create schools and open factories and small business for people in that area to be able to work. I would go to war torn and disaster torn areas and help migrate people who can't leave for financial or health reasons. I would provide housing for them and open a foundation that will look into helping the people i have migrated and others from war torn and disaster torn areas. I would help orphans who have no parents to the best of my ability. I would try to eradicate poverty by opening factories and businesses around the world in places where jobs are hard to find and the economy is down. Employ individuals regardless of their educational background. Ensure they are well trained and understand the task they have to do at work. I would also have sit downs with government heads and figure out a way i could use the position i am in at that time to help make the world a better place. I pray for world peace.
