As an organizer of a woman’s young professional organization in New York, I am blessed with meeting beautiful, interesting, amazing woman all the time. This city has the ability to bring in flocks of determined women, as well as play host to those born and raised here doing fabulous things. Today I have the privilege to write about a wonderful woman that encompasses that passionate spirit of NYC. Last week I had the pleasure of watching her perform as a spotlight musician at the RAW Natural Born Artists event in NYC, and some times you just know when you are in the presence of greatness. She rocks the stage, and has a voice that can command the attention of anyone that is in the room. One would think that with this much talent, and the beauty to match, she would be a diva, but I can tell you that after knowing her for almost two years, she is a performer of the people. She is incredibly kind, always willing to participate and help with charity events, and so much fun to be around. Hasina was kind enough to take a moment out of her busy schedule to answer some questions for the blog.
Hasina: I was born in Queens, N.Y. and was a big 80s baby – loved the music, the TV shows, the cartoons – especially Jem and the Holograms!
Scene Stealers NYC: What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
Hasina: Creative, Intense, Funny
Scene Stealers NYC: Have you always enjoyed the art of music? How did you get started?
Hasina: I’ve loved music and singing for as long as I can remember. My dad has cassette tapes of me singing at three years old and I wrote my first song at age seven.
Scene Stealers NYC: What was the first song you ever sang?
Hasina: Wow! Good question – I believe it was I’ll Tumble 4 Ya by Culture Club.
Hasina: I’m a pop girl at heart although I have a background in classical music. I love to bend and mix genres – from classical to Rock and Roll to R&B – so my music has its own unique, fresh sound.
Scene Stealers NYC: Where would you most like to perform?
Hasina: I want to perform all over the world! Looking to get some UK love in the new year!
Scene Stealers NYC: Do you have any hidden talents?
Hasina: I love to cook! I’m such a foodie especially when it comes to desserts. I also do impressions of famous people. Some say my Sean Connery is spot on!
Hasina: Either a panther or a lion – I can’t decide.
Scene Stealers NYC: What are 5 things that you can’t live without?
Hasina: Music, green smoothies, kisses, donuts, and books.
Scene Stealers NYC: Do you have a quote/motto that you live by?
Hasina: Keep going, keep growing
Thank you so much Hasina for taking the time to talk to us. You are definitely destined for big things!
