Did you take inspiration from any person in particular?
Certainly, every human being is inspired by many successful people in their growth path; But I was always trying to create a new path; It may seem a little difficult to begin with, but when a new path is created; It makes better sense to me that other people are inspired by me.

To answer this question I must say: “Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest; heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul…”
How and when did you started into modeling and as an actor?
It may be so funny! but it was my first experience on TV when I was a baby…! When I appeared as a baby (newborn) in some Ads for one of the milk powder brands, Since childhood, I have been noticed by many companies because of the different color of my eyes and its change by ambient light (blue, green, gray, ice gray). In recent years, I have appeared as an Actor in several movies and short films, and I have also collaborated with several reputable and famous international brands in the field of face modeling as a Model.
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
I believe failure teaches you stand firm on the ground even when the success is making you fly high in the sky. Failure is painful when it brings inverted frowns on others face! Then you realize that life is being mean. Hold on! It is just the beginning. Success will also fail to teach you something – “This too shall move on.”
What do you think is the secret to have successful Social accounts as a celebritybuzz?
The first step is perseverance, then content production is important, Definitely using professionals in this field can help make a “post or story” different, using a professional photographer as well as consulting with a social media manager to make a post better seen and shared is very effective. But for me, the inner feeling that the viewers get from my posts on social media is the most important thing; That’s why I try to show different aspects of myself in each post. I have published 4 books in this field that are available in international markets such as Amazon.
You are followed by so many people. How do you feel about that pressure of doing always the right thing, and encourage people to follow their dreams?
Yes, For example I currently followed by about 5 million and 200 thousand people (5.2m) on my verified Instagram. It is beautiful to be a role model, but at the same time it is difficult, because there are always people who look at you to do the smallest things; That’s why you should always be a good role model, especially for the younger generation
