Growing up in primary school, I was bullied. I am not ashamed to admit it in the slightest. After all, it helped me to become a lot more mentally strong in order to cope with the hardships that I’d have to deal with later in life.
I remember telling my friends and family for the first time that I wanted to be in the music industry. They smiled — after all, I had a passion… but deep down, I’m sure they were thinking that I’d never be successful. After all, it’s hard to make it in the entertainment industry. And so i can totally respect their point of view.
Regardless, I went on chasing my dream. From a very young age, i started listening to music: analysing songs to understand how they were written, why it was structured in a certain way. And then I began to write my own songs… they were pretty shit. But it was a start.
That then gave me the starting point I needed in order to find my ambition and chase it. No matter what, I just wanted to prove to everybody, but most importantly myself, that I can acheive anything I set my mind to.
Of course, there’s been times when I’ve only had $10 in my bank account… like most teenagers. But part of life is figuring out your problems, and creating a solution for them.
And so as of today, I’m quitting television. I’m quitting all the bullshit activities that will get me nowhere. I’d doubling down on my passion, my strength. I’m going all in.
I know that I’ll get hate & criticism for what I do and say. But that is part of the price of success. I’m willing to accept it.
I’m not scared of failure. I’m not scared of losing. Because ultimately, it’s our failures in life that shape who we are. I’m making my entire life public, and documenting it.
Shit is about to get fucked up. Welcome to Project X.
