Q: How has living in a different country changed your life?  

A: Japan let me see a lot of different sides of myself and learn different lessons from this country. It adds something towards my life and how I think about things, different logics, different systems.  I’ve enhanced my experience quite a lot by living abroad. 


Q: What advice do you have for Black youth and creatives?  

A: When it comes down to it, it’s all about paperwork, forms, records. Just take your time, do your paperwork and everything will be fine. Keep on doing your thing, don’t lose yourself, study some of the classic things, study and build your craft with it, know your tools.
