I am constantly stunned by the amount of talent that I find on social media. Victory Vizhanska is one of those talents, an aspiring singer, actress and model. Victory is following her dreams and is an inspiration for those who want to do the same… She was kind enough to answer a few questions for us!
Firstly, Would you like to introduce yourself to our readers?
Thank you very much for this opportunity! My name is Victory Vizhanska. I'm 15 years old and live in Kyiv, Ukraine. I'm a student of the Academy of Variety and Circus Arts, the vocal faculty.
You have an amazing voice, when did you realise you wanted to start singing/acting?
Thank you! At the age of 8 my Mom brought me to a music school because I sang since early childhood. But I didn't like it and their approach to education, so I mainly learned songs myself using a tape recorder. Mom took me to vocal contests and I won prizes. I learned to play the piano, ukulele and guitar - this all by myself too. Now my dream is to play the violin.
My first theatre appearance was on the stage of the Opera House in the role of little Marilyn Monroe in the musical "Marilyn Monroe. The Image Eclipsed Life" in 2014 (I was 9 years old then). From that time I realized that my life is a stage - all these applause, performances, songs and shoots.
Who has been a big inspiration for you?
Well, the first influencer was my Mom: she always wanted me to become a successful vocalist and actress. And only later I found out about Marilyn Monroe and Freddie Mercury.
When I feel sad and it seems that everything I do may be in vain, I think about Freddie. This gives me a boost of optimism and I return to music again.
I see you sing, act and model... Which do you prefer doing?
Of course, vocals come first for me. Also, I really love to see myself as an actress. Now I make all the video clips myself, I have a saying: "If you want to do it well, do it yourself" , so I am both a director and an video editor.
What are your plans for the future?
I am thinking of entering a film and television university, possibly in Warsaw. Then to continue my studies at the New York Film Academy, if finances allow. I also dream of starring in a series from Netflix. And of course, I dream to become an artist who is famous all over the world.
Do you have any projects lined up?
Unfortunately, I have none of my own songs, I cannot create my own compositions yet. But I do not give up and I am constantly engaged in recording covers.
Do you have any interesting/funny stories that you can tell us?
I think my life is one funny story. My zodiac sign is Aquarius, and I am very creative, but often confuse and forget a lot. For example, I can drive in the wrong direction, run and bump into the camera - as it was on the video recording for one of our covers. My Mom was filming me on a phone camera. I was running through the forest, I was wearing black glasses, and I had to run past her, but I miscalculated something and bumped my forehead just into the camera! Mom and I laughed a lot then, I decided to leave this fragment in the video, you can see that at the link:
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I want to thank you very much for your interest in me, the time you spent on me and this interview! To all people who do not believe in their luck - I advise to take a look at my life: I don't have money, I don't have rich parents and connections. I have only my mother and many very kind people around, huge thanks to them! And of course, I have my vocal talent that God gave me! Hope very much that this all helps me to become a world famous star. Just believe in yourself, friends!
