Introduce yourself?: My name is Jesus (Hey-Suess) Lucero and I grow up in Highland Park New Jersey but I’m also Mexican because my bloodline originates from there. I’m currently 13 years old and I was born facially deformed due to a cleft palate on my left, along with a bunch of other wierd medical deformations. (Aka when I was born I flatlined and then got revived like 8 times and I’m so blessed to have lived) and now I’m starting a music career hoping to one day let others know my struggles in life.
What inspires you everyday?: What inspires me to keep on doing what I’m doing is the thought of my family, I always tell myself, “do it for them” “do it for. ______ (family member) and also I pray to the heavenly father for energy/strength when I’m at my weakest/have to do something very tough.
What is something you would change about people in the world?: I would wanna change how people judge others before getting to know them. When i first started Pre-K everybody thought I was some sort of monster because of my facial appearance, and then out of nowhere a kid named Kevin asked, “Wanna be friends?” And from there on out everybody started to befriend me, and everybody accepted and liked me for who I am. So if i could change one thing in this world it would be to stop people from judging and hating someone for how they look before they meet them.
How do you feel about the people in the world?: I look at the world like a stormy ocean, there is so much negativity and hate towards one another, (the storm) but there are also those small calm ripples that don’t harm and bring a vibe of something positive (the light in this world) so in other words, I see the world as being very negative and full of hate, but there are the small rays of light that make this world good. That’s why my artist name is “Lil Light” because I wanna represent the good in life even if it’s so small no else can see it (thats where the world “lil” comes in lol) and also to let people know all about my life and how I coped with it, and even through the suicidal thoughts, I still had the energy to leave the darkness of my life and try to be someone better.
What is something you’ve struggled with in life?: I suffered from a lot of heartbreak, causing me to become really depressed, and I would starve myself because of it, and also I struggled with fitting in because in every new school you meet alot of new people, and of course because I am deformed I stand out more and people stare at me. Also, because of all the Depression it caused me to get really anxious, so much to the point where I almost ended my life. Thank God I stopped myself and said “No. No more of this. I don’t want this anymore.” And after that I started fresh, I regathered myself, the sadness slowly went away, and then I started to write music, made alot of that, and in a couple months I’m dropping my first Album to see how it goes
What is a positive message you would give others?: Never give up, no matter how deep into a problem you are don’t stop and quit, keep on trying until you accomplish whatever you were trying to accomplish. And whatever negativity others tell you, don’t listen to them because when you succeed, they’ll be the ones trying to get back into your life as a “good person” when in reailty they wanna use you.
what is some things you wanna tell people in the world and be honest? : Mostly everything I already said ^^^ and also I wanma tell the people of this world to stop with polllution before we all die cuz our fatasses were too lazy to pick up some gum wrappers that were on the ground
