My serendipitous encounter with Mega Mexican Pop Star


It gives me great pleasure to launch this website with my interview with Aleks Syntek. I met Aleks in the Los Angeles airport in April of 2017. I was of course thrilled to see such a talented, famous musician standing right next to me at the baggage claim and had to introduce myself. He was incredibly friendly and open to talking and, as most star-struck fans do, I asked to take a picture with him. I also got a chance to ask him what he was doing in LA and he told me he was working on a project that would be released the following year. As I started on my way towards customs, I told him how exciting it was to meet him and he said it was cool for him too because not too many people recognize him in the US. I laughed and said. “well, I am your fan gringa”!

A few days later, I decided to send the picture I took with him to his official Facebook messenger. To my utter surprise he thanked me for sending him the picture and sent me a link to the project he was working on in the US. I clicked the link and saw the most inspiring, genuine work I had seen in very a long time. I won’t say much yet about the project because it has not been published, but I will say that it kindled a fire inside me that had been very dimly lit for too many years. It reminded me of my passions and dreams and that I too should chase those dreams. It’s never too late to follow your heart and ambitions. That simple action of watching the link he sent and meeting him completely set me on a new path to revisit my creative self and start working on catching those dreams I had had as a kid.
