Marouan Es Sarhdaoui: Interview


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


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

I am a young person trying to make the best decisions for my life and share my experience and perspcetives with the rest of the world.

Why do you do what you do?

One day I realized I could at the same time do what I love while being able to live. I am passionate about what I do and for me, live on its passion is the best way to be successful and happy.

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

There are many factors or events who guided me. First I traveled a lot during my childhood, I moved 4 or 5 times so I had more perspective that other people of me ages had. But the major event occurred when I started to share my work on the internet and I had quite feedback on my work or my photos.

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

I am fortunate to have started very early when I was very young so I was able to have a technical lead in my design school especially. The hardest thing I had was when I started instagram. I knew nothing, I was still a beginner in photography, and there was very little feedback on my account. I even thought about stop.It was my little brother that pushed me to continue. He is a great source of inspiration.

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

My little brother for sure. Some friends who are also in the creative and artistic « world ». Some igmer like Humza Deas, Trashhand.

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

During your ascent, many people will try to take advantage of you.

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

My website is being finalized. I will also sell prints in the future. After my studies, I would love to move to New York City.

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

Always stay focused on your goals no matter the temptations.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

What a time to be alive.
