A lot of people call you a visionary. What does that mean to you?
Marsai: It means a lot [that people call me a visionary]. I’m just taking this one step at a time and the reason why I am in this industry is because this is my passion and what I love to do, so I try not to think of it in that way. I’m just doing it for the long-run. This is what I love doing. I’m beyond grateful…to have other girls and other boys be inspired by what I’m doing is pretty amazing so I will keep on moving forward for them.”
Where do you hope to be in five years?
Marsai:I have so many big goals! I want to be the host of something: SNL, an awards show…that’d be dope! But whatever I think of, it always becomes something bigger than that so I don’t want to lower my expectations. I guess we’ll see!”
What advice would you give someone pursuing their passion?
Marsai: Believe in yourself! Everyone says that, but it’s so true because you have to love yourself before you can love anyone else…Stay confident! It may be difficult at times but the more comfortable you become, the more you put your mind to it…have the right mindset to keep going and keep moving forward, whether that’s in school, or something you want to do or sports or whatever it is: you have to have the confidence to push yourself to your full potential.
