“I learned can manufacturing from my father when I was very young. Along with that, I was very passionate about arts. I would participate in the school arts activities, I had a passion for painting and creative arts, but I could not continue because of work and providing money. When I wanted to attend the School of Fine Arts, my family did not allow it. They would say, ‘You have to finish school and get in a good field.’ I have done a lot of theater and was one of those who did great acting with my friends. We had also formed a theater club, but all we got was the claps and thanks, which doesn’t lead you anywhere. For certain theater works, we paid for the supplies ourselves. I have stopped working in theater and have a job of my own now: I own a cafeteria through which I can get an income and lead life with. This doesn’t mean the arts have died in me, but I don’t think I will go back on the stage.”
