Dreams Into Plans: Yassmine

As I announced in this post, I will start a new series of post where I am going to interview people who made their dreams come true. So many interesting and inspiring people are coming up so I hope you’ll be as excited as me to know more about them!

The first person I had the pleasure and honour to interview is Yassmine Jabrane. Yassmine was born and raised in Italy but she now lives in London where she is studying songwriting. She has always been studying music both modern and classic’s worlds and has just published her Z2M0719.jpgnew EP called “ 15-18 “ which you can listen to here.

Here below are the questions I made her and her answers, enjoy the read! 🙂

-Which is the dream/s you had since a long time (specify how much if you want) that actually became reality?

Well, I’ve always wanted to study music in order to build a solid education, because I personally think that a great musician is not made just of talent. So I can proudly say that now I’m living my dream: I’m study Songwriting at BIMM London, and it’s a blast!

-Did you follow any sort of plan (like setting goals, asking for help…) in order to achieve it/them?

Uhm, I need to be honest, usually I’m not that tidy, and I think this reflects my way of living. I don’t want to sound too bohémien, but kind of always followed the flow of my feelings. I knew music was able to give some amazing satisfactions, so I just did what I felt, and music is for surZ2M0736.jpge what makes me feel great!

-How did you feel when you realised you were actually living your dream?

Regarding my London experience, I only tell you that I’m about to start my second year of University, and I still look at this city as I did the first time when I was ten. It feels like I’m still living my first days, this whole experience has a super positive influence on me.

-Which was the toughest part during the journey to make this/these dream/s come true?

I’m from Italy, and I don’t what to be mean or anything I’m just being honest, but usually over there people don’t think that making music is a job. When I was in high school so many ( MANY MANY MANY ) times, I’ve been told that I was wasting my time, that it would have been better for me to change my studies and choose something that one day could have brought me a proper salary. But thank God, I’ve got the greatest parents in the world, and now I’m who I am because of them, because they have always being supporting what I think is my way. Now I’m 20, I moved to a city that has faced me with lots of people way more talented than me, but I can assure that there’s nothing better than living in a city that can offer you as many artistic perspectives as London.Z2M0708.jpg

-Which is one suggestion you would give to anyone who has a dream like yours and would like to make it true?

We are all insecure, we’re all not sure where the future may take us, but what I feel to suggest is to believe in what you’ve got. That’s all, the main thing is to believe in what you can offer, in what your dream is. And if you work hard to reach it you’ll make it. I would say “ what goes around comes back around “.
