Henry Evia: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration – Art

Passion – Work

Strength – Dreams

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

That’s a tough one. I’m a romantic guy who loves to dream and tell stories in any artistic way possible. I’m a part-time super hero too, just kidding.

Why do you do what you do?

I love fashion photography and writing. I think being a fashion blogger lets me do both in a way that’s easy-going and fun. I guess when it’s not fun anymore; I’ll stop doing it. In the meantime, you’ll be seeing tons of more pictures on my blog.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

The thing that embodies everything that I do is writing. I’m always imagining stuff, really, like dreaming with my eyes wide open. At some point, I figured I needed to start recording these ideas and what better way to do it than writing about them?

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Luckily, nothing too tough has come my way yet. I’m pretty sure I’m going to fret a bit when the time to search for a publishing house comes (for my novels) or when I have no money for a new camera or clothes (for the blog). But so far, I’ve always been able to overcome difficulties. I’m a very private guy and I don’t like to trouble other people with my issues so I’d say I’m my own helper/therapist. Haha.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I think a lot of people have inspired me through the years at certain points of my life when I felt stuck on some areas but it has probably been indirect. I have no idea if I’ve ever inspired anyone, hopefully I have, I’d be grateful if I did.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I’ve learnt to not get drunk during important industry parties, haha. Really. I know now that I have to treat every party like a business opportunity and make the most of them.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I recently finished my first fiction novel and I’m working on my second. When I have two finished, I’ll start looking for a publishing house. I’m planning to go to Europe for the first time during spring 2015 and, if I play my cards right, also go to Japan. And I’d love to start my Master’s degree in August next year, in Australia.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Be the type of person that you would like to meet. Always be kind, it’s the easiest thing in the world and people don’t do it often enough. The world has enough rude people, don’t be one of them.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Do your favorite things more often, stop caring about others and live your life the way you have to live it. Cry when you feel like doing it, there’s nothing wrong with not being happy, just don’t be depressed, that middle area is wonderful, trust me.
