1- Hello Nikita, can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
I am a down to earth southern military brat who loves the arts. I come from a family who likes to entertain others and make them happy. Since the age of five I started singing in church and by nine and ten I started writing poems and songs. Once I was twelve I began modeling and continued to further my singing and songwriting not only for myself but for family and friends. The journey has landed me where I am today and I continue to share my music with the world.
2- What are your focus areas and why?
I focus on my talents in which God has blessed me with. Passions that drive me to do what I love like my singing, songwriting, modeling, acting, dancing, etc… I also focus on being a good person to others and sharing love and compassion.
3- What influences your song writings? What makes you want to wake up every morning to write a song?
Life influences my writing, whether that’s love, pain, or growth. What puts me in the mood to write a song is passion. I’m always writing just because I like doing it, and it’s easy for me to express myself on paper.
4- Where do you think you are making an impact?
I feel like I’m making an impact just being myself. People are drawn to relate-ability and I feel like I have that.
5- Can you share with us more about your new Productions?
My EP Model Status is for those who are confident, bold, and risk taking. These individuals are not mediocre just because others around them are mediocre. They let their light shine through any situation there placed in and don’t apologize for it, just being their best self.
6- Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Well rounded internationally known entertainer.
7- What are some things that most people don’t know about your job?
Being an independent artist is a challenge. Mentally, physically, and financially everything falls on you. Until you can build the right team around you, everything is a one man job. You are the boss and will have to juggle and learn all trades. That can mean marketing, photography, choreography, accountant, promoter, manager, etc….but at the end of the day; it will prepare you for bigger and better things to come.
8- What can you tell young people who are pursuing their dreams?
Have keep God first, have patience and be driven. Nothing going to happen overnight, but with faith and determination, a door will open. As long as you have breath in your body there’s another chance and day to reach your dreams.
9- What are you most excited about at the moment?
I’m excited about the single off the EP “Model Status” it’s a different sound, the lyrics can apply to anyone and it’s a fun record to turn up to!
10- The last word or final thoughts?
