Thank you for sharing your story with us Roma. Take us back in time to how you first fell in love with music.
My love for music came from my parents. There was always music in my household growing up. My dad loved to listen to classical and jazz music while he prepared Sunday dinner. My mom got me interested in musical theater and dance. Whenever I was in the car with my parents, Sirius XM’s 70s on 7 was always on. Always. I couldn’t imagine my life without music. I love how music can help awaken my emotions. Straight up, I will listen to a song 4 to 6 times in a row in order to understand why it makes me feel in such a way. There is so much freedom in music and in turn I feel free listening and making music.
What core values to believe are necessary for success?
Being humble is a vital value in any sort of success. Success isn’t just about the goals you’ve accomplished. It’s also about the journey it has taken you to achieve those goals. Remembering all those who saw your potential and supported you. Remembering all those who put you down and tried to diminish your dreams. Remembering the mistakes, sacrifices and growth you’ve made along the way. These are the things that led you to being successful (and maybe a few yeses!) With a humble spirit, you inspire yourself and others.
What future opportunities would you like to be involved with?
I’d like to collaborate with up-and-coming artists to create new music and/or mind-bending covers! I want to meet as many people as I can who are motivated and inspired to create new art.
