Q. What motivated you to take a step towards weight loss? Please share your story.
I was extremely bullied for my weight growing up as a child. As an epileptic, my weight gain came from a low metabolism due to my seizure medications. At 14, I had a brain surgery which eliminated most of my seizures and allowed me to live medication-free. At that point, I was able to lose weight and achieve my body goals. I’ve lost 120 pounds naturally and continue to work on my health and body goals daily.
Q. One piece of advice you would like to give someone who is currently struggling in life?
“This too shall pass.” will always be one of my favorite quotes. You have the opportunity to change and grow into anything you want to be! With discipline and faith, you CAN achieve your goals and desires. But you MUST put in the work!
Q. Which people or books have had the most influence on your growth and why?
Oh! This is an easy question! “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne was life-changing! I read it at 17 and since that day, I changed my thought patterns and daily habits and I truly became a completely different person. Thank you, Rhonda! You saved my life.
Q. What are your 2021 Goals? Have you achieved any yet?
To have major artist placements and sync placements on television and movies! I have already achieved one of those, but I will release more details when I can ;)
Q. How did you start your singing career?
My mom always said I was singing before I could talk. I have a little video of me singing My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion at 2 years old and belting my little heart out haha. I knew my passion so young that it was always just part of my life
Q. How do you manage your time?
Due to covid, the business has been slow for everyone, including me. But I spend a lot of time with my incredibly supportive family, my talented co-writers where we spend every week writing with each other on zoom, my private music students where I also teach them on zoom, and I always squeeze in some yoga, HIIT exercises, hikes, and meditation. A healthy lifestyle is very important to me (with a little coffee every morning as my vice haha).
Q. What would you say is your #1 key to success?
Believe you can achieve! Anything you put time, effort, and faith into, I guarantee you can do it. It all starts when you stop doubting yourself and start saying “I can” “I will” and “I am”. I journal affirmations daily because I always have to remind myself how powerful I really am. I speak and write it down as if I already achieved my goals.
And FEELING the excitement from it is also SO important. You have to feel the excitement from the new job opportunity and the 1,000,000 dollars you’ve finally worked so hard for. It’s already yours! I always meditate after I journal to really lock my affirmations and goals in, I know that way I can attract them even faster.
Q. What is your ULTIMATE DREAM that you want to achieve?
To write music with Dua Lipa! That girl is a rockstar and I can’t wait till that day I write music with her! Also, Adele and Ryan Tedder are huge, huge goals as well.
Q. What are your future plans as an entrepreneur?
I plan on opening several businesses in the music industry, including my own music school for kids to learn instruments, writing, singing, and production after school and on weekends. My co-writers and I have already talked about starting a business this summer where we write with new up-and-coming independent artists and help them develop their sound through writing, composition, and production. I also want to start a non-profit organization where kids who are being bullied at school/online can come to a safe environment to surround themself with counselors, kind volunteers, and other kids whenever they feel unsafe at school or home.
Q. Future of SALISMANIA.com through your eyes?
I see SALISMANIA bringing forth new entrepreneurs to the forefront and promoting success stories as a way to motivate and grow our community of youngsters. I love what they’re bringing and who they’re bringing forward. It is so positive and enlightening, especially in such a dark time. Thank you SALISMANIA for interviewing me and having me on!
