Salman Dean: Interview

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

Art, Love and Perseverance

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

A London boy who loves to travel but deep down I am an old soul with a young heart.

Why do you do what you do?

To inspire and be inspired. I love the creativity and art form. Also I have something to say and just want to be heard.

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

I never thought I would be a blogger because I’m a very private person but so many people kept telling me to start one up. I think it’s because I’m so opinionated and have a specific aesthetic. So I just started writing one day and here we are.

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

Facing judgment. Like I mentioned I’m quite private so putting myself out there the way I do was definitely an obstacle for me. To get over it I just took the fuck it approach.

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

I take inspiration from people like Eckhart Tolle and even Oprah. I also get inspired by all art forms especially music and photography. I hope that my blog inspires people out there in some way or the other.

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

I don’t really have any regrets because each experience has made me who I am.

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

Nothing that I can talk about right now. All I can say is watch this space. However I just launched a YouTube channel and hope to be filming more, so please check that out.

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

Your cup should always be full. Anything that flows over is for other people. What I mean by that is you need to be 100% whole in order for you to serve/ help others.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I thank each and every one who keeps up with me. God knows how I manage to retain your attention in such a chaotic world.
