[06:00] Why should we listen to you?
I pursue transparency and honesty. I am an open book and whatever topic we will talk about, expect it to be answered by the truth.
[06:42] Becoming a Beatboxer
I dreamt of being able to beatbox in front of thousands of people having millions of subscribers when I was young. A video of mine went viral five years ago and it got a billion views on Facebook. It was the turning point in my life where I stopped studying nursing.
[8:31] My family and friends told me that beatboxing is just a hobby. It made me fear committing to it fully. I was suffocated because I wanted to be a beatboxer. The video being viral, made me learn a lot of things in life.
[11:06] Navigating negativities
You need to be thoroughly clean of your identity and what you wanted to pursue. That clarity will make any negativity irrelevant.
[17:00] Career and Future
I am in a difficult situation like everyone else. I am learning new things and I regret not building my network early on. I am learning as much as anyone else and trying to tie all of these things together.
[21:57] I am hoping to monetize my podcast, have a large audience, and speak with an amazing guest in the future.
[23:25] What promise did God make to the world, when He created you?
There would be a sincere person who has good intentions to help other people.
