So my instinct was: Music, music and come what may. I had my first guitar when I was (about) five years old which was just one with buttons… Later, they gave me a more classical one, a small one… And so I was… I was gradually falling in love. I loved the idea… that I could write something, , and then add music to it, or rhythm… or a melody. And so, bit by bit, I was writing more and more, and… I was developing both my writing and my playing skills at the same time. I allow myself to express my feelings… and when I feel like… “OK, there might be something here”, I think that “OK, I get into the mood that this is a piece, and this is how I want it to be”… For example, I could be playing on my guitar, and I think of a chord progression, and I’m like: “OK. That’s cool”. And because this inspires me, I can sit down and write lyrics to the music. The inspiration to write comes at different phases. I tried to imagine my life without… without having music in my everyday life… I couldn’t! This is want I want to do. I want… I mean, even if I’m not performing, I want my every day to be somehow surrounded by this thing I applied for a scholarship, and I also sent my applications to the University, and… they called me for a meeting, something like an interview. We did the interview, and then we scheduled an audition… I did my audition… and they accepted me… They told me “Welcome to the European University”. And it all started from there. In my wildest dreams? I want to be able to write my music… To have 13-20 records, to be 50 years old, and write pieces for others. I would like to do something with my music, to leave something behind. It might not be… It might not be known worldwide, I don’t care about that so long as I know that something which is mine is out there and that the public has the chance to listen to it… to experience it. “If you believe in yourself, and you want it”… you will make it! That’s for sure.
