What is the best thing that I love about my work? Performing. I love singing and being on the stage. It is the full process: rehearsals, outfit choice, work on the stage presence and on how to interact with the audience. All those actions blended with the artistic expression and the intimacy of my personality feels fascinating and dynamic, which makes me believe that I will never get tired of it because every time will be different. I see evolution in that and so I love it.
What is my idea of happiness? A state of being Oneness. I mean, being fully present in life. A process that sees mind and consciousness aligned and therefore that sees the person in a state of inner stillness.
What is my greatest fear? It is to lose someone very close to me, someone I care about and not being able to accept it. I am referring to death. Only recently, I have started to look at it from a different perspective. Sometimes, there is a lot of influence from the culture. Death is something horrible, unacceptable, traumatic, and painful in the place I grew up. We do not celebrate if someone dies, we show respect with mourning and silence for a long period that most of the time drags us in depression by the end of it. I believe that death is the end of the earthly pain and suffering. Death is liberation, it is when our mission on the earth is over. Sometimes, It doesn’t feel real and it seems so unfair that some people are not here with us anymore. However, looking at it from this perspective helped me a lot to avoid painful days.
