Kasisill: Interview

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

Create, execute and succeed.

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

I am a Entrepreneur.

Why do you do what you do?

I organize and create photo shoots, I am the stylist and I model in between.

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

When I travelled to Asia it made my decision clear, as I knew back then that I wanted to do this for a living, several big collaborations occurred at that time.

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

I think that would be to sever collaborations that’s always a tough thing to do but you can’t hold yourself responsible for wanting to move on. My family and friends are always nearby to support.

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

My main source of inspiration comes directly from music, festivals and several other artists/movies, whether it’s something visual or audio it all inspires me.

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

I made plenty of mistakes that I ain’t proud of but because of those events that occurred I became the person I am these days and I can definitely say it with confidence that I’m proud of myself.

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

There are several new projects coming along the way which will include new faces, ongoing top brands and a whole new approach of creation. My main goal right now is to establish a well  know network with designers, creators and brands.

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

Don’t let other people determine your future, work hard and claim what is rightfully yours.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

If you have a vision, create it. If you have something to say, say it out loud.If you like someone, tell them. Don’t ever stop encouraging yourself, you are all that matters at the end of the road.
