What is your one-line positive thinking mantra?
“Hustlers aint made to win, we just do it”
2. Describe your personality?
Fun, loyal, non- materialistic, stubborn, determined … I’m a Taurus lolls.
3. What practices have you adopted that have led to a healthier lifestyle?
Well, I used to be a vegetarian but Thanksgiving caught up to me. I do make sure I eat all the vitamins I am supposed to for the day. Get your Spirulina up!
4. The world is going green, have you embraced the trend?
Now why wouldn’t I? I like the fact that you can do mostly everything on the internet. It’s better than cutting trees to make sheets of paper & pencils. Even though hybrid cars may not go as fast as the others, they get you from point A to point B just like the rest and can be fashionable just like the rest, so why not!?
5. Provide us with a few tips and tricks for holistic living?
If you feel like you need a vacation, take one. Sometimes getting away may be the healthiest thing for someone who is overwhelmed with the obstacles life brings our way. Always have someone to talk to, don’t bottle up all your issues into nothing, thinking they will go away. You may need to release them somehow, someway and communication is a good way to express how you feel. Also try to be more grateful. Grateful people are usually happy and being happy is healthy. J
6. Describe your fashion style.
My style is anything I find, lols I’m one of those. I wake up, shower, put my arm over my eyes and dig in the drawer for whatever I find. I’ll tell you this much though, I prefer my dunks dirty & scruffy and I’m very picky when purchasing jeans.
7. How do you unwind after a long week?
I’m not really sure what I do. I’m constantly making music. Sometimes I don’t even know what day it is. Maybe I do need to pick a day to unwind. I may not have a day but I do have a time of the year. Once a year, every year, I go to Jamaica. It always gives me a fresh look on everything.
8. What empowers you?
My Determination empowers me. It keeps me going and when people step out of their way to tell me how much they appreciate my stuff, that also keeps me going.
9. What is your favorite cuisine?
My favorite cuisine is jerk chicken … Mmmmm …or lobster. I usually get the #1 at Tony’s on City Island in the Bronx; 3 lobster tails, fried shrimp salad and all that good stuff.
10. How do you creatively express yourself?
I creatively express myself through music, but sometimes I feel the need to paint or draw. However, I feel like if I start drawing how I feel, people wouldn’t understand. I still do it anyway.
