Speaking Out for Change

Updated: Feb 19



As a musician, I’ve always tried to focus on collecting my thoughts and putting them on paper. That’s actually more challenging than it seems, and the truth is that it can take a bit of a trial and error to process. You really need to commit to the idea of growth and value, and you need to understand that something as simple as speaking out for change is extremely important.


The last thing you want to do is to just ignore the things that are happening and move on. If you really want to pursue great success in the things you do, then you constantly have to push the boundaries and make a difference in this society. Yes, it’s never going to be extremely easy to do, and it certainly comes with its fair share of challenges. But in the end, speaking up is the right thing to do, and it will help others join your cause and understand all the demanding situations that can arise.


When I write my music, I always focus on speaking about problems that a lot of people either ignore or stay away from. My most important topics that I always try to speak about are things like women rights, BLM, domestic violence and so on. All of these have a very important place in my heart because I either went through such problems or other people in my life have been affected by this problem in the first place. That’s why it can be more important than ever to understand what challenges appear and what you can do in order to really push things to the next level. I know it’s never going to be easy to speak up, especially if you dealt with trauma and violence.


Yet if you don’t focus on sharing your ideas, beliefs and what happened, then others will go through the same thing. You really want to make a change, so the simple idea of speaking up can actually help save a lot of lives if it’s done correctly.


All you have to do is to understand challenges and really focus on the future and the benefits you can achieve. Yes, this can be a challenge, but if you know how to manage things and never give up, then life can be a whole lot better in the long run. I know for a fact that if we just stay mum and don’t say anything, then things will stay the same. However, we are not a part of the society just to move on and not address the important things. That’s why it’s crucial for me to speak out.


Thankfully, my music platform allows me to do that. All my work is filled with ideas regarding these topics, and I want to spread the word and let people know as much as possible about this. In the end, it can make quite the difference, and also show people that making a change is indeed possible, you just have to start talking about these challenging things and open up the eyes and ears of other people. Rest assured that it will become a topic of interest and we will soon see all the change we are craving for!
