EvenRights Dj LA Blog Write Up
Dj LA has an unlimited love for humanity which makes her such a special individual. She is not only respected as a well rounded DJ, but as a woman in general. This has allowed her to gain a wide variety of gigs as a Dj.
We asked her: Why do you feel creativity and optimism is important to promote to our generation?
I think that optimism and creativity is all we have in this world. There is an endless onslaught of headlines that are supposed to grab our attention, however I think that all of that is just distracting us from the real task at hand. That task is to unify each other through creativity, through love, and through common ground. Creativity and optimism are the building blocks of imagination so I believe that they are as important to us as the air we breathe.
Nowadays, people need to understand the essence of equality, the understanding that we all as humans have many of the same hurdles, trials and tribulations. No one man or woman can say flaws or mistakes have not been made in their life . Just because it is not seen as much on others as it may be to someone who is glorified in status , we all fall under the category of being equal when it comes to certain topics.
Dj LA, have you overcome any trials and tribulations using creativity and optimism? If so, what ?
Like many, I deal with my fair share of depression and also anxiety, especially during the process of creating. I compare myself in a multitude of ways. I think that anyone that is creative, in this line of work especially, deals with their fair share of anxiety...in a way, it means they care, possibly too much. However, that doesn't mean that we are not functional, as well as productive members of society that give back even more than we take and observe. I want to leave the earth a better place than I found it.
Taking some time to understand Dj LA’s point of view in being equal was a bit of a twist . The outcome is still the same when the cup is looked at as half full or half empty.
What are your Beliefs of how we can all be characterized as equal?
Being that all have the trait of being creative and optimistic .
I think that it's almost impossible for us to all be characterized as equal, unless we take away the constraints and elitism that comes with having a lot of money. Also, if we took away everyone’s sight, We might be able to see everyone as equal, but I think that sight alone is a way that we judge people without even knowing them. Someone’s appearance, what they pull up in, what they have on, are what I like to call “the extras”.
Sometimes people are afraid to be honest because of ramifications/consequences. Being honest with yourself instead of catering to what you think others will say gives you a sense of freedom in being creative . Sometimes we can be blocked from our creative side when trying to appease others.
How hard is it to stay creative with your brand and what would you say to somebody experiencing this same issue.
For me it's not hard at all to be creative. I try to block out the noise and I really be strict with myself about what I allow to come into my hemisphere…I mean, in terms of what I take in via social media, the news, text messages, email, phone calls, anything really! I try to strain my intake and not overstimulate my brain with BS. I do not allow negativity or bad talk to come into my sphere, and I really try to do the same with myself. I am actively training myself to not say anything bad about anyone or anything if I'm not willing to help fix it.
The goal with EvenRights is to eliminate negative stereotypes, and promote equality and creativity through events, collaborations, projects and management. If anything is ever taken from any content created from EvenRights, it is to either confirm the subject who’s being written about to have been promoting equality before this blog or will now do so after allowing us to illustrate on whomever we’re being creative on or with.
Will equality be something your brand will promote after this blog/interview and why?
Always, because I would struggle to have the future be a place that I want my children to live in….a time and place I can be proud to say I helped build.
Dj LA , real name Layla this brings us to our next question Taking the time to cater to a primarily adult audience. What can we teach our adult audience to do in order to be examples of equality for our youth?
Just remember that children are like sponges, they take everything in. whatever environment that they are in, they will absorb everything.
There’s so many issues we face when dealing with police brutality. It makes it tough on all the officers who practice being at service more than delegation when dealing with civilians .
Do you think educational tutorials for police officers of how equality, creativity and optimism may be able to help better their decision making they are forced to make in the field.
Of course, like any sector of our government that we pay taxes for, I believe that police definitely have to have a yearly updated curriculum on how they deal with the public. Technology is changing so quickly, as is our perception and intake of technology, and I believe that police officers needs to be held accountable and aware of what they're doing constantly not only is that are right, but it is our duty to make sure that this happens and that they are collectively held accountable for their actions and their inaction
DJ LA took no shame in targeting the ladies when making a point focusing on young women knowing how to protect themselves and their space when asked the question.
How can we strengthen the curriculum of schools with more life-awareness skills and strategies?
Young ladies should understand how to protect themselves and their space both verbally and physically from a very young age. A lot of us young ladies are taught that it is rude to speak up, however I think it is imperative that we make sure that these young ladies know how to speak up properly and protect their space from a young age. That is very important. I also believe that young children from kindergarten on up should learn how to handle money, write checks, my handle bank account, and vest, save, a myriad of these basic Financial knowledge skills
There’s absolutely no doubt when Dj LA speaks about women at a young age. They need to have strong communication skills and protect themselves . Going further into life skills, the babies are where everything starts.
-It starts at home
