˜ "My dream is to be able to explore the world and create visuals, create art, create content, create memories, create adventure. I want to create opportunities to create anything that is coming from my own heart and put it out there in the world. I want to be able to express myself through my art and do it on my own terms. That's really what I want to do.
I started doing all these things and the more I did things, the more people were inspired by it and that made me so happy. I see people on social media that I get inspired by every single day and when I am able to post things and people tell me that I inspire them, that just makes me want to do more. I don't see myself doing anything else than adventuring out, discovering new places, exploring and keeping my curiosity alive.
I'm inspired by the world and the universe and art and meeting people. This year I surrounded myself with people that make me happy because the people you surround yourself with make a huge role in your life. I'm very specific about energy. You've got to surround yourself with people that inspire you, that make you feel better, that make you feel like you can take on anything. That's the type of people I surround myself with and that's the type of people the universe keeps sending me because I kept sending out that same energy. Everything is connected that way." ˜
