PHOTOGRAPHY & EDITING BY ALEXANDRA ROMAN
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF DATING IN OUR GENERATION?
It’s a lie. It’s mostly a hunt where we try to get someone’s attention and leave aside all morals. We try to act as someone that we are not and constantly seek for approval and admiration...I see it as something that gives me anxiety now that looking back at my past experience.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN LET DOWN/BETRAYED?
I have...and it changed me a lot...it made me not expect anything from anyone anymore....because eventually, I would always end up hurt...it’s not a nice way to go through life but I guess that’s what pain does to u. It makes u stronger and wiser. At least, that’s what what I've heard 🙊😅
As for betrayal, I have been many times as well. Betrayal for me is mental and physical pain. Each time I can literally feel my heart hurting...It’s a horrible thing...I wish I could see less of it.
WHAT'S YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR MOTHER?
My mother is my best friend...she knows me better than I know myself. She is the perfect example of a strong independent woman who managed to raise a daughter on her own, while working multiple jobs. She is my hero and I live my life trying to make her proud.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN HATRED?
I don’t hate and never will. When hate is in your mind and heart, life becomes extremely hard to live...I learned with time that all wounds heel and that everyone makes mistakes...it is our job to forgive. Forgiveness is what I ultimately believe in.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SOCIAL MEDIA? HOW DO YOU USE YOURS?
I dislike social media...even though I’m on it. I believe that we are on it to seek approval from others...who liked my pic and who didn’t. Even though it has its benefits...I feel that it harms me personally. To go even deeper... I don't think someone can create an accurate image of myself by just looking at my instagram and yet many act as if they can. What I choose to showcase on my own social media platforms is simply just one side; one aspect of what makes me, me. It's not the whole story. I use my social media to capture my fashion style & lifestyle (food, parties, traveling, etc) and friends. For now, that's all I'm ready to share with my online community.
WHAT DO YOU THINK PEOPLE SEE WHEN THEY LOOK AT YOUR PROFILE?
I think people who look at my profile think that I am hard to talk to...which is completely false...:)) i don’t know why ...but that’s what I tend to hear....
HAVE YOU EVER TREATED SOMEONE BADLY?
Yes I have. I always think about the times where I wasn’t my best self and try to make amends...even in my mind, I try to telepathically transmit to people that I am sorry...that’s why I forgive people...so that I may receive it in return. What you put out, is what you ultimately receive...perhaps manifested differently, perhaps within an identical manner.
IF YOU COULD BE A DRINK, WHAT DRINK WOULD YOU BE?
Pure and simple as water.
