What’s your opinion about tattoos?

I personally like them if they are small in the right places, and preferably on a male.

Do you own one or more?

I wished to get one, in memory of my father, but nor I neither my relatives where too keen on this idea. I believe that he is in my heart forever, so now I don’t think I need to show it in a tattoo.

What makes you angry the most?

Someone being late, and people trying to interfere in your work or trying to cause obstacles in your life to make you take the long way or to try to break you down and catch the highway.

If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?

That’s freaky, but sometimes it’s reality. From what I’ve been through 2 years ago with my father, I would just keep trying to live normally, keep being surrounded by those who truly love me, and try and make a good gesture to make other people have heart and stay strong just like my father taught me the few months before he died.

Were you ever bullied as a kid?

When you’re a kid everyone gets a turn getting picked on by other kids, especially when you’re in the media at a young age. People will have a wrong perception of you, but I can’t call it bullying. You have to stand up for yourself and keep being who you are showing that no one is going to get to you, not by fighting but by saying the right words at the right time to the right person!

What’s a hobby you spend most money on?

Photography for sure! I have been doing photography for the past 3 years and I simply love it, it’s so fulfilling and rewarding and it has everything to do with fashion and art and that basically sums up my whole life, being creative and artistic.

What is it that you would never dream to be ?

A young kids doctor! I love children so much, that I cannot imagine ever being a doctor or a nurse to ill children – my heart would simply sink and I wouldn’t have the courage to support them, yet you never know where life’s circumstances will take you.
