I believe everyone has the right to pursue their dreams and passions, whatever they may be.

We live in a world full of challenges and opportunities, and I hope my music can inspire people to face life's difficulties and challenges bravely.

Society's expectations and norms often limit individuals' development and freedom. I hope my music can inspire people to think and challenge the status quo.

In the process of creating music, I try to reflect my emotions and experiences while also aiming to touch the hearts of listeners.

For me, music is not just an art form; it's a way of life and an attitude.

I believe music has the power to transcend language and culture, connecting people's hearts and bridging boundaries.

As an artist

Music is my way of expressing emotions and thoughts; it's an indispensable part of my life.
