We had the good fortune of connecting with JD Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi JD, why did you pursue a creative career?
The reason I pursued an artistic/creative career is, because I was brought up around art…especially music. Growing up I always wanted to entertain. From telling jokes, performing in front of people, doing things to make people laugh and feel good about themselves. So, then I knew that was something I was called to do. All the people I’ve encountered has told me how much I’ve made an impact on them in some type of way, because of my creativity.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me a part from others is my ability to adapt an any environment! I believe my light shines bright and I make a huge difference wherever I go. What I’m most proud of is, is my consistency! Never giving up! As I always…”All gas, no breaks!” It was not easy at all, because at times I felt looked over. What I did to overcome it, was to create my own lane, remain consistent with hard work, and let go of fear. I’ve learned that if you love what you do and you’re serious about it, you will do it!!
