Mawrsi: Interview


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

Family and friends.

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

I'm a very simple person who enjoys everything life has to offer.

Why do you do what you do?

Photography is my way to communicate with the people, I'm not the most talk active person when I'm surrounded by tons of folks so when you see me shooting during a specific gathering/chilling/event you have to know I'm paying hommage to the lost happiness.

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

I was 9 years old when my aunt took me under her wing & showed me how to do photo properly. She used to be a model for Nygard, had tons of dating proposal ranging from President Nixon's son to David Copperfield & she always managed to stay down to earth, not going for the limelight & keeping it real - that's how inspirational she was. So basically she was my main inspiration as far as photography is concerned & she always supported me in whatever I was doing but specially photography so it pretty much went on from there.

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

The biggest battle I face every damn day of my life is to believe in me, it's a challenge to always stay motivated so everytime I wake up, I just try to do my things.  At some point I quit photography because I had a bad experience but then I found love & my boyfriend kicked me in the butt to believe in it again. This might sound cheesy but I don't give a fuck, love is all you need truthfully, I'm just going where the love is at.

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

As I mentionned before my aunt & you can definitely add my boyfriend to the equation. Literally, we've been working all of our projects together and God knows how many we have.

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

Wanting to quit. At the end of the day, I realized I am surrounded by so many inspiring people that they made it impossible for me to quit & that's what keeps me going.

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

This upcoming June, I will be leaving for Europe as the official photographer to cover Montreal Invazion presented by Saine Scene, a music tour featuring Walla P & Dr. MaD (VOYAGE FUNKTASTIQUE) + Charles Cozy (MELT MTL). Once we come back from that tour, I will be preparing my first official exposition & to be honest 2015 is going to be a turning point in my career.

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

With love, passion & confidence - just do what you got to do. Let your actions speaks for you.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
