Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
Creativity has always been a huge part of my life. Even from a young age, I recorded little videos on a camcorder or performed with my brother for the family.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
I am currently self-employed and working on my video and film projects as a content creator, and producer. But it wasn’t always like that. I had times where I haven’t followed my dreams.
My passion has always been filming and video production. My first production experience was in Kyrgyzstan (my home country). Together with a friend we produced a TV program for the young generation, I managed the production and editing of the whole program.
After this time I went abroad, to Berlin, to study here and to do my Master’s in Project Management. After graduation I accompanied various projects as a product manager, also I gained experience in IT, but I wasn’t in my place. It took me years to recognize that I’m unhappy, quit my job and start my own path into video production.
