JahZina is 8 years old. She has been writing for about 6 months, she started writing music because she got inspired by her older sister. Jazara is 16 years old. She has been writing since she was about 8 years old. She has always wanted to sing and be on stage and as an artist she has always believed that you have to write your own music to connect with people on a whole new way.
What is your original song about ? Our original song is about a two wolves who realize that it’s better to be with your family then to be alone because you’re stronger when you’re with people you love.
Why is it important for girls to know their own power? It's important for girls to know that they are powerful because they are able to change the world.
How does it feel for you when you are playing music? For JahZina she gets a little nervous on stage because all the people are looking at her, but when she’s with her sister on stage she feels stronger and isn’t as nervous. For Jazara when she’s playing her music it’s like the world stops and in that moment when she’s on stage it’s a feeling that’s indescribable for her. It’s like being in that perfect moment that you want to redo again and again, with some nerves that are with her but she pushes passed it.
What do you want to be when you grow up? JahZina wants to be everything she can possibly be, from being a fashion designer to becoming the president she wants to try it all. Jazara wants to pursue her music and become a successful artist that gets to share and connect with everyone in the world through her music.
