Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today?
I am 17 years old from Ivor, Virginia. I know for a fact that I got in this position I am currently at because of the power of God. I would not be anything without God. I work hard through sleepless nights to try and reach my dreams.

Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Learning the industry. When a artist first steps into the industry it can be hard, but if you are very informed and study the industry you will prosper. I say it is hard to learn the industry but once you learn it the possibilities are endless.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
When my twitter account got hacked, stolen, and changed up. I had almost 150 thousand followers, but the hacker got in and locked me out and basically ran with my account and changed it into a spam account; I bounced back in like 2 days with a new account and I was blessed with being able to get a official website out. I think my set back was a blessing in disguise remember everything bad will lead to good somehow.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
