The T-Quest Show: Serena Deena Interview

International Superstar is what comes to mind when I think of Serena Deena. She is a star that is shining! Having the pleasure of interviewing her, hearing how professional she is, down to earth, loving caring, hard working and hearing her awesome music was so epic. Her style of music is unique and I could see her on the charts soon.

Serena Deena

As I write this article I’m smiling because I’m happy I was introduced to Serena Deena. As soon as she called into my radio show, I knew in the first moment that we were going to have a great conversation. Not sure who to give the credit to, whether it was her upbringing or artist development but her professionalism and the way she spoke impressed me. She conducted herself very well in the interview. As we began to have more of a conversation, I was intrigued by many experiences she mentioned. Serena is what I call an all around entertainer.

Yes, she does music but she is also a dancer & a writer. She’s down to earth, she lives life and what she feels is what she displays in her music. During the interview we played and we spoke upon her two singles entitled Dirty & Palm. As the music was playing, I was getting contacted by the listener eager to learn where they can hear more of her music. That’s exactly the type of responses you want to get from new potential fans. Serena was even open to collaborating with me on a song which shows she’s down to create magic with others.

Not only is be easy on the eye but she has a beautiful spirit as well. Please make sure you support by streaming her music & keeping up with her on your social media as well as her website which is displayed. She’s a star that’s definitely shining!

The Quest Chronicles: Smile For YOU!!!

#GetSOM @TQuestGLM

I honestly believe I be freaking people out. When they hear my voice, they can’t help but to smile. “Are you always this happy & chipper? You must be living your BEST life!” When I hear people speak like this, I can’t help but to laugh.

They swear my life is easy & amazing! I’ll take that but what they need to realize is, I choose my emotions. We all have that choice. When we wake up in the morning, you have the choice to smile, frown, cry or laugh. I make the decision to smile & wake up every morning with the feeling as if it’s my birthday!

Some may think I’m crazy but that’s ok. Let’s be real, no one is perfect. Life isn’t easy for many of us so what do we do? I know what’s going on in society. I’m aware of the dark cloud roaming but I won’t allow it to control me. I handle my business but I handle myself first.

Me personally, make it my business to do certain activities throughout the day that makes me smile such as dancing, listening to comedy, writing music or talking to only people who truly make me happy. I suggest you do the same.  These small gestures can go a long way especially for your own sanity.

You owe it to yourself to be happy even just a little in these trying times. I say this often because many of us need the friendly reminder. Self care, self awareness & self love… You got this!
