We sat down with him this weekend to talk about what drives him every day.


What does a typical day in your week look like? 

My days begin by thanking God for another day of good health. It’s the best way to get up. I prepare my breakfast balanced with juice made from vegetable and fruits, a good coffee without sugar, and a toast of whole wheat bread. I like to exercise at home and then run a maximum of 45 minutes through the city to feel the fresh air! It’s the best way to start the day. Gods time is perfect.


What inspires you to keep going?

That’s a good question. We are the only ones who can choose : lower your arms or keep fighting. Life is not easy sometimes. We go through difficult trials, but there must be in each of us the necessary strength that allows to get up and keep walking. Sometimes we think that dreams are impossible, but the truth is that if we put all our desire, and focus our mind and heart, any purpose can be achieved. There is nothing wrong with believing and we lose nothing by trying. In the end, believing is power. So do not stop with what you want to do. Think that you can achieve everything that you set out to do and fight for your dreams. We have a whole life ahead. Every obstacle can be overcome and every goal can be met. I learned all this from my parents, they have been the motor in my life.


What has been the biggest challenge so far?

It’s a secret but I’ll tell you. My biggest challenge was to love myself as a person. I always thought that facing a new challenge was highly frustrating, exasperating, and full of obstacles that kept me away from what I want to be. Before I used to take them personally. I even thought that the universe should hate me for introducing them to my path. Now, however, I like to see myself in the fight.

As I have grown, it seems to me that my competitive nature has been increasing to face these challenges, and I am learning to see them in a different way. Most of us know that to obtain a great reward requires great sacrifice and effort. Surely you know the old saying that nothing is worth it if it is easily obtained. In a way, this is true. If everything we wanted in life, we were delivered without work, we probably would not have a great appreciation for it.

On the other hand, when we strive to achieve something and then see the results before our eyes, we have a strong sense of pride and satisfaction for the achievement achieved. We can point it out and say, “I wanted to get it and I did. It was hard, but I did it anyway”.

We must see the challenges as what they really are, as opportunities. Opportunities to grow and learn, to strengthen us, and to test our faith in ourselves.

The challenges reveal to us how much we want to create dreams in our hearts, and how hard we are willing to work for them. This is a blessing. At first we may not see it that way, but with a small change of attitude, we can see that we’ve been given an incredible opportunity.


What advice do you have for others who hope to become influencers?

Nowadays, social networks play a very important role in young people’s lives. You can stay in your house locked up and still be known in society. Personally, becoming an influencer gave me the benefit of knowing that I can help many people with their physical insecurities with their doubts and problems regarding the world of aesthetics and beauty. I like to know that there are people waiting for my messages. Apart from this, being an influencer helps me get jobs in the world of advertising. It is a tool to advertise myself Being an influencer makes you an advertising medium.

Where do you see the future of streetwear?   

I see it on the street, in the young people who are the ones who risk it. For me it is a good future for this society. It’s a way to enhance the elegance of every person. Street fashion for me is the best solution to love yourself. The art of combining clothes, wearing a good jacket with jeans, showing the world your clothes of the day. As street style fever grows and is present in countless countries, we fashion enthusiasts go out into the street with our most transgressive styles and pose before any objective that we observe with the excuse of going out in any blog or fashion publication. It’s a sign that our style is worthy of the best covers!
