We had the good fortune of connecting with Owastasha and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Owastasha, what do you want people to remember about you?
Right now, I want my legacy to relay how you should always go after what you want and that you get what you put out in life. Life happens to everybody, but never give up on yourself and what matters to you.
I was authentically myself. People waver constantly, so I try focus on how I feel about my choices.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve loved music since the age of 2 once I heard Whitney Houston sing. I began writing at the age 8, competing in shows and pageants through my teens and by 21, I decided to take my music career seriously. I used to stress about time due to losing both of my parents at a young age so my focus shifted to surviving instead of making music. I’ve learned over time, it’s all according to a bigger plan. I released my first EP “Signs 9” ,which is available on all platforms at the end of 2020 and I’ve been working on my second EP for a release date in 2023. The biggest lessons I’ve learned is ‘You’re not owed anything’ and how impactful self love is to your existence. My brand is knowing each chapter of my evolution is amazing as the next and that there is only one of me. By being myself honestly, helps others to be comfortable being who they are. I’m not afraid of change and I can conquer whatever I want with work and faith.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m a homebody, but I love food and art, so I’d take them to Snooze ( a breakfast place) then an art museum then Yogi’s (sushi). Art fascinates me in the sense of someone from centuries or decades ago, created something that I’m able to witness almost firsthand. With food, I love how the culture take over; what’s normal here isn’t necessarily normal in a different place. Plus, I’ll try almost anything once!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I love food and art, so I’d take them to Snooze for breakfast, an art museum and finish with Yogi’s for sushi.
