Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I’m David. I’m 22 years old and am currently living in Luxembourg. Born in Portugal, came here in 2016 to have a better life.
Passionate about art, I make music and take photos. Those are two things that have always caught my attention since I can remember.
Being able to eypress myself through something that isn’t just a bunch of words put together is fantastic.
I’m quite perfectionist so, before I release something I need to make sure that it is the way I wanted it to be, whether it’s a photo or a song. This has it’s advantages and disadvantages, like everything else, I just manage to find a middle point in between not even knowing how ahah.
Other than that, I’m quite calm and don’t talk too much, I’m the type of person that prefers to observe rather than say the first thing that comes to my mind.
What Inspires You Every day? : Mainly my Mom. She’s been through so much her whole life but after several years she’s still standing up. Despite of having some health issues because of being too kind to other people – not that’s it’s her fault. It’s the world that has too much evil – there are people in worse conditions.
That’s one of the reasons I started making music. It’s a slow process when you dive in all by yourself but after several hours of research, dedication, organization and some talent, I believe everyone can make it happen.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: I have two sayings that are quite controversial but still work well together and make sense. The first one is:
“It’s never too much” which means you can always get more whether it’s money, a grade in school, it can be almost anything.
Finally, the second one is: ” Balance is key” which means that sometimes you have to stop, take a deep breath, look back to what you’ve done and be thankful for what/where you got so far.
Today you know more than yesterday so, imagine tomorrow.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : When I was kid all I dreamed about was money. It hasn’t changed.
As I kept growing up I realized that being alone can be worse than having no money. Even though both together are even worse, having nobody to talk to or just to have a good time with is awful. With that being sad, besides enough money not to be worried about how next month’s bills will be paid I don’t need friends.
I need someone I could trust as much as they’d trust me.
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : It does really depend on how you do it and why you do it. If there’s a good reason to do it, let’s say I’m trying to alert people about some natural disaster it is a good reason to seek attention, it’s for a good cause, you know?
On the other hand, if you only seek attention just for the sake of it, just for your five minutes of fame it’s worthless. There are many things you could other than spending time seeking for attention, should seek for help I’d say.
It’s just my opinion, so, you do whatever you feel like doing, as long as you know the consequences, we’re good.
How would you help people around the world who are going through mental health problems? : That’s a very good question.
I’d like to talk to them, ask them what they’re going through and how I could help.
I’d offer them as much help as possible.
If your head isn’t working properly, your whole life won’t be easy.
If there’s someone out there in the need of talking, hit me up. You’re not alone, trust me!
How would you describe a better world for us all? : It’s a very tough question and there are several ways where the world could be a better place.
First of all, ending every war that has already started or is about to start like the one between Russia and Ukraine would be a good starting point. Our lives are too short to be spent having more problems.
We’re supposed to have a peaceful life. Everyone should have the chance to find happiness, a honest job and have time to travel and know this Planet.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I don’t say everything I do, and many people should do the same. Not everyone will understand what you do, will do or are doing, and that’s ok. As long as you know what you’re doing and are aware of potential consequences which isn’t always the case but, you know, be aware of everything around you.
Go get some knowledge , drink water and have fun.
