I have many dream stages but one of biggest dream is broadway stage.
What ís the best bit of advice you have ever been given?
I remember when I was maybe 8-9 years old I had a concert and my mum was standing with me behind the scenes and I was nervous and she held my hand and said “imagine that nobody is watching” and after that day I always remember those words.
what’s your biggest fear?
I am afraid of dogs.
What is a typical day like for you?
My typical day is very loaded. When I wake up I have a cup of tea or coffee, then I pray and go to the university (I study music technology in conservatory) after lessons I have rehearsals or some meetings than I meet my friends and have great time relaxing with them.
