How Did You Get Started In Music Videos?
“I got started in Music videos after a talent manager approach me when I was attending Miami Dade on campus. He said I had an exotic look and he wanted to help manage me and I started doing music videos a couple months later.” (Bo In Sisqo’s Can I Live)
What made you change careers?
“I changed careers because I felt being in music videos [was not] my real passion. I was passionate about acting but I wanted to have more stability in my life. I felt people automatically judge you morally and your level of intelligence when you have that career path.”
What Sparked you to write a book?
“I wanted to write because I enjoy making up stories in my mind and then bringing it to life on paper.” (Bo In Ja Rules Music Video Below)
What advice would you give ex vixens?
“The only advice I think I could give is never compromise yourself for a dollar and have a back-up plan.”
How important is a college degree in 2016?
“A degree is important depending on the person and their future goals. If you are a Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, etc. you may not need a degree, [but] I don’t know many people who are that blessed. Its important to have role models but remember [everyone’s] path is different.”
