Interview with Dilan Ulucinar (@zaian_officiel)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I always loved to listen to rap music as a young boy. As I grew up and started learning how to play instruments, I began to write my own lyrics as well. Slowly, I realized that this is something I have a passion for. I kept improving myself and found solace in rapping. It made me feel confident and relaxed. So now, I believe I have reached the point where I want to go further with my career in music and performance.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Don’t force yourself to do anything. Take your time, have a couple of side hobbies, and take your time in the creative process.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I would be nowhere without my friends or family. They have truly been my support through all of my rough times.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Spreading awareness and goodwill through my music is what I consider to be my contribution to society. Other than this, I also believe in raising my voice for a good cause and important social issues.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“The only thing worse than starting something and failing … is not starting something.” – Seth Godin
This is the quote that made me really start pushing towards my goal. I have it written on a frame and even my phone’s wallpaper. It gives me strength.
