I believe in my dream to be able to bring life to every person’s passion in life. I believe we have that something in us that we can share to others to be able to live peacefully and in harmony according to our talents and skills. Mine is the enjoyment of seeing the fulfillment of someone’s dreams. Einstein’s words are the foundation of what I like to accomplish, “Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid” - by that I would like to create a platform where people can live their passions and be able to pay their bills and in the process find their true potential and meaning. A place where every passion is celebrated and every person is acknowledged of his skills.
What started this dream?
When I was young, probably in the years of 8-10 my life was in sketching, I extremely like the rush and serenity of being able to just sit and do something you really love. I could spend the whole day sketching even forgetting to eat. Until one day someone told me I can not make a life in arts alone, devastated me really bad and as a boy I could do nothing but drop my passion and live a life like “the normal boy” they say. That made me live a life apart from my innate self, It made me less of who I truly am. Living my life then was really painful, growing up carrying a deep hole left unfilled. I never want that to happen to anyone. It pains me seeing people doing things they don’t love. It kills me knowing there are people living a life I lived, you know? always wondering what would life be if I chose to be who I am. It dawned on me what I should bring value to people. I want them to stop doing what they don’t love and start doing what they are innately good at to follow their passions.
What motivates you to follow this dream?
I have that innate feeling I always want to feel when a great talent is finally acknowledged and revered. I feel extreme joy watching a person being acknowledged. Every person has that same light in the face when they reach a certain goal, praised by their boss for a great job, a singer getting a standing ovation and the like. I want to be the reason of that light in someone’s face. It motivates me to be that person who creates something, a platform where every passion is lived and along the way monetize it to continually have a way of becoming it his profession. I want to become that someone people say “because of you I made a way to live the life I want, the job I love and the dreams which was once untravelled”.
What are your goals?
As a web developer and startup enthusiast I now have learned that I don’t need to wait for anyone who will create the future I want, I learned that the future is bendable as long as you will it. My goal now is to materialize the startup I want to create, a video sharing website/app, social network, multi-field portfolio for artistic individuals and professions that pay like YouTube on top of YouTube that provide a personal/promotional space to market their careers as well as a way to monetize their passions so they can continually live a life they want.
What would you like people to know and where can we find you?
I want to let people know that I am only 24 years old, I can’t achieve my goals alone and that I need help. I am looking for people who can trust me to fund the idea and make a future where no dreams will be left untravelled.
