Introduce yourself?: My name is Eleni Papachristodoulou and I am 18 years old. I am a self taught musician from Johannesburg South Africa. I play guitar, drums, piano, drums, ukulele and violin. I am currently studying sound Engineering.

What inspires you everyday?: My main inspiration is my brother who has been through trials and tribulations with me, and whose love and support has helped me through the most difficult times. He has given me guidance and love so that I could overcome the problems I have faced.

What is something you would change about people in the world?: I wish people would be more forgiving of each others mistakes. I learnt to forgive my mother for leaving me and that was the only thing that helped me grow as a person into all that God had planned for my life.

How do you feel about the people in the world?: I used to reject people when they reached out to me because I was afraid to trust people, but I learned to forgive so that I could trust more people and let them in. Everyone in our lives can offer us something. We just have to use wisdom when deciding what we keep and what we discard.

What is something you’ve struggled with in life?: Rejection. Not being accepted. Not being loved by those who were meant to love me. But God has always remained a strong hold in my life. He has been thee for me when nobody else was. He gave me the gift of music so that I never have to feel alone.

What is a positive message you would give others?: Always trust your own instincts. And don’t give up because people say you are not good enough. If you work had at something then you will be better then the rest. And in ten years time you’ll look down on the people who spoke negatively over your life. Never accept negative remarks but always welcome good quality criticism. But do not be disheartened. It can only help you grow.

what is some things you wanna tell people in the world and be honest? : I am who I am despite what you said about me. I have achieved what I have achieved despite what you said I would not achieve. I will be who I want to be despite what you say I cannot be.
