I posed some questions to Prescilla and this is what she said! 🙂
What is your career?
I am a professional music artist. I perform and also deal with the business side of music as an indie artist.
Is it the same as your passion?
Yes, I have sacrificed a lot to live in my passions.
What is your passion?
I am a music addict!!!!!
What are the greatest challenges and greatest rewards of your career?
The greatest challenges would be to keep finding ways to keep up with the cost of living while working in the indie music scene. The greatest rewards are when I complete a project: mastered a song recording, released a music video. The initial song writing is fun for me. I also enjoy the work that is placed towards producing. I enjoy the challenge.
What is your advice to others embarking on similar career?
Don’t stop if you love what you do because if you have true passion, it will keep you going through the journey.
What does it mean to be an artist?
I consider my self not a music artist, but, an artist of life. To me, an artist is a person who creates and continues to do so on a regular.
5 years ago, did you expect to be where you are today? Why, why not?
5 years ago, I was thinking I’d have a stable full-time job, but I ended up risking the stability for an adventure in music, well worth it!
Where will you be in 5 years?
In 5 years, I see myself affiliated with a major label, producing other artists music and developing artists. I also will keep creating my on music to release. I will be getting into different styles of music to keep me growing and having fun in music. My music label PEACEFUL REVOLUTION MUSIC will expand.
What would you say to your 8-year-old self?
Enjoy your childhood and stop being so sad.
What would you say to your 80-year-old self?
Keep fit, keep dancing, keep spending time with loved ones.
How lucky are you and why?
I have created my own luck through hard work and, focus and dedication. Nothing has ever been given to me. I feel more blessed, not lucky.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I am a private person, I’m not sure why I’m in entertainment, but this is where my heart has brought me and I happier than ever. I enjoy influencing culture in a positive way.
What makes you laugh? What is fun for you?
My daughters always know how to make me laugh! Fun for me is spending time with my loved ones.
What makes you question humanity?
People should not be killing people or wanting others to suffer. All of humanity should be helping one another get through because we are all trying to survive, stop making it so hard. If you help more than you take, you are creating positive karma.
What is your favourite quote?
“Be the change you want to see.”- Ghandi
“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”- Plato
