We had the good fortune of connecting with Kayciii and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kayciii, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
Great question, for me giving up is not an option. If you have a plan, it’s important to see it through. Now sometimes it may not go the way you wish,but then the best way is to try a different way. Sometimes your way may not work but that doesn’t mean that it can’t work. If you have a vision, see it through. Never hurts to try right? You never know what you can do until you do it.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a singer/songwriter and actress. Or what I like to call myself, full-on entertainer. What sets me apart is that I’m me at the end of the day. Growing up in Chicago, I started at the age of 4 in performing arts. It’s not a gimmick, it’s my life! I’m most proud of starting my own independent Label and Publishing company called “Stewart Ridge Entertainment & Publishing LLC” There’s something empowering about owning your own and being a female in this industry that’s so male dominating. Was it easy, not at all! This industry is not for the faint of heart. It’s tough, and often you want to give up, but you don’t. I’ve overcome challenges just by knowing who I am and knowing my worth. Putting one foot in front of the other. Lessons learned have been just to be myself. Take advice from those who’ve been here before you and really let it sink it. Be open to new ideas and don’t get in your own way. I want the world to know that I absolutely love what I do and I will stop at nothing to get to where God has already planned for me to be in my career.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Hmmm, for me I play everything by ear LA. I’m a creature of habit so I’d go to LA tourist spots that maybe they haven’t been to. We’d probably find a new restaurant to try together and definitely a movie. Nothing too extreme you know.
