Meet The Women In My Life – Part 10 – Vanina

Women's Day 2019 - Vanina Lion

Since International Women’s Day, (which was the 8th of March 2019), I’ve been sharing one interview a day.

To celebrate them, I’ve interviewed the women in my life to share their perspective on things. I included parents, siblings, cousins, aunties and even friends.

It’s no secret that we live in a male-dominated global culture and women are often at the shorter end of the stick, especially when they are more than capable to do what men can do in society, and often more! People are people, regardless of gender.

The coin does flip both ways so I look forward to doing one for the guys too.

Today’s interview is with a talented woman I who only met last year and she is now working for my new record label. Meet singer-songwriter Vanina…

One of my dreams is that people could respect each other, not imposing their views, wishes and mandates on everyone.

Interviews coming each day for a month so make sure to subscribe, options found to the right or in the menu above.

Hiya Vanina, what makes you a woman?

Whatever makes me a human, basically.

Who is one of the women you respect the most and why?

I respect everybody, male, female and everything in between. So for me it is more a matter of admiration. There are so many women who were brave enough to go through life as an equal to their male peers, who got an education, worked and raised a family, more than a century ago. I deeply admire them.

I also realized that I admire tons of female artists, with enough guts to go for it and live their dreams. Balancing all of their desires, taking risks and fulfilling obligations, all at the same time.

If you were a man, what do you think life would be like, as compared to
now?

I think that men, just like women, are also still prone to living up to expectations. So maybe my life would be pretty much the same, but with other types of pressures. Like “success” measured in income, for example.

What do you struggle with the most in life?

I struggle to find a balance between personal and professional life. I know that balance is almost a Utopian idea, or that when it happens, it doesn’t last long. But still, I keep looking for it.

What do you enjoy the most in life?

I really enjoy making music and being together with my family. And sleeping in on weekends 🙂

What one thing would you like to tell all the women out there?

I’d say the same that I’d say to anybody… Don’t think gender, think human.

What one thing would you like to tell all the men out there?

I’d say the same that I’d say to anybody… Don’t think gender, think human.

What is your dream?

One of my dreams is that people could respect each other, not imposing their views, wishes and mandates on everyone. I dream that people took their time to get to know themselves, and to be free and courageous to go get what they want.
