Jessica Anbara: Interview


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

Love – Music – Freedom

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

A symbol of love that is looking to spread and increase love. A person who wants to be happy and make people happy. A lion, not a sheep. I create my own norm.

Why do you do what you do?

I pour my heart & soul into my music to help people relate & find comfort. To gain awareness. To smile.

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

I always knew this is what I wanted. As a child, I would spend every free moment of my day dancing and singing. What confirmed this for me was having studied almost every program in university and worked in almost every field and still not feeling the passion that I have for music.

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

Sacrificing my personal life in order to have time to do this during university while I was also working. True friends will support and never hold that against you.

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

Michael Jackson and Britney Spears live performances. A couple of my fans are following their dreams now because they’ve  seen me work my way up and know that it is possible to attain your goals if you work hard enough.

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

Starting too late. My passion is stronger than ever and I just need to put in twice as much work. 

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

Mixtape June 10 #NTLETG “Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain”

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

Be yourself. Create your own path and your own limits. “To get something you never had, you must do something you've never done" Don't be afraid of failure, trying is the only way to find out. It's not about how many times you fail, but how many times you get back up and try again. Success is not about Talent, it's about SKILL. Hard work and effort pays off.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

"Sometimes I wish I could take my heart out and keep it in a safe, but then I remember all the people. I remember how small acts of kindness can make someone happy. I remember my heart is not just mine, but it's to share love with everyone, to create happiness and pay it forward. Sometimes the purest heart that is hurt beyond repair can still find happiness through making others happy. That is rare. Love is selfless. That is valuable.""There's no limit to my art & creativity; This is why I have no 'genre'. My music is my way of expressing how I feel in a moment in time, however it may come. Inspiration is everywhere & I refuse to limit myself. " - Jessica Anbara
