Silence is not an option

I wish I had another reason to write about this. I wish I had a positive outcome, a revolutionary one, a permanent solution to the abuse of power. But unfortunately, not only we, but generations before us, have persistently watched the exploitation of the rights of the black community. Racism is a crime that we’ve witnessed over and over live from the 24/7 news to walking down the street in our own communities. It’s disturbing to even comprehend how we (society) normalized this problem over so many generations.

We must amplify the voices and the issues of the black community. We are accountable to the people that we help, and we want to keep improving our awareness and our education. To help the one’s in need I’ll leave here some useful information that I’ve used in the last couple of …

Where I’ve been

Between travelling and working, I’m still here. Thriving, trying to make something happen for my future. Being the creative business can be overwhelming. Sharing my work online can be quite challenging… promoting myself always felt a bit weird to me. Because I don’t own a specific skill, I work with what I’ve got: it can be in acting, writing, comedy, the list can go on and still these titles only limit a job description that doesn’t exist in the traditional market. I’m happy with my path so far and I will continue to create opportunities for myself. Hope you do too. Cheers

Continuing

“As a creative person I’m not able to judge any type of art form from a first impression. It’s important to consider the artistic freedom that the artist takes into making something new. When you find a purpose in something you want to do, just go for it. No fear. Commit to what you want to do and nothing less.” This was a statement I wrote as a presentation quote for this website. Over the past few months I’ve learnt so much about what I can achieve in this creative medium, that this statement above is still relevant. I’ve had a great productive season. Now I shall continue to perform on stage (and off), freelancing and of course, evolving. More will come. Thank you.

In retrospective

First and foremost, hi. I don’t know why, but every time I publish a blog-post it feels like I’m writing a letter to somebody distant. That being said: Yes, I know. It has been a long time since I published something. Even though I’ve been away from publishing some of my work, I just want to leave a positive note: I’ve been busy, not only working but also, scheduling future projects. You can follow me on twitter or instagram to have updates of upcoming gigs or projects I’m involved in. Without further ado, Thank you.  

Out of my comfort zone

I just got off the phone with my cousin who I haven’t spoken in two years. The conversation we had reminded me why I left my home-country. And also why we don’t talk much. You see, we have different goals in life. I’ve been working abroad over the past few years and facing new challenges almost every single day. My cousin never lived outside his village. He keeps telling me to “come home”, “find a job here”, “stay here”. To be honest, these words don’t warm my heart. I tried so many times to explain to him that the world outside is so much more than stereotypes, monuments and sunny spots. The world has so much more to offer: home sickness, uncomfortable places and a learning process about who you are. Through all these years I haven’t found a place where I would make myself a home so instead of chasing it, I’ve started to move around. I decided to live with other people, to share stories, to open myself to new possibilities and realize …
