For her interview Sika talks about her style, major life lessons and her next big milestone.
See excerpts below.
On her role models: Personally my mother is a huge role model. She is sacrificial, prayerful, hardworking and an amazing wife and mother. She makes it really hard for anyone else to be my role model, LOL. But career wise though I’m inspired by how accomplished, content and generous Ellen Degeneres is. It’s my dream to get to that point where despite achieving so many milestones, my main goal in life is to give back with so much kindness and change people’s lives for the better.
On her style: Extremely easy, comfort is always key and I would rather go for classic and lady-like than go for sexy which not everyone can carry off. I keep it very simple that way I can never go wrong.
On the best career advice she has gotten: First do what you truly love and makes you happy, then make your own lane and follow it. Comparison is always a bad idea unless you’re trying to be like everyone else. Find out what makes you stand out and focus on that.
On what makes her feel glamorous: My natural hair, surprisingly. I feel effortlessly beautiful in it as it showcases the features of my face.
On her upcoming projects: Well, I’m currently working on several personal projects for both TV and Web! Yep, total world domination. So from Vlogs to TV movies I have plans to do projects which would allow people get to know the real me. They are scary but exciting. I’ve also currently embarked on an initiative that I’m super-duper excited about called The Creative Inc which will bring young talented creatives together to implement some mind blowing projects.
