[This is written in this way, because I like to invoke your imagination.]
Hi, my Cuddle. I have invited you over here today, to give you an opportunity to answer some questions, as a way to introduce yourself. I know your story is very, ve-ry long. I know that with the impression you have made, you have left many people with questions on their minds. Hopefully, in this way, your true nature will be emphasized – as a correction of the false rumors, which have damaged your reputation so much – and people will not be stuck with questions anymore.
My Sweetniss, thank you so much for this opportunity! With this, you are helping me in so many ways! I hope that with this, I can also show that what they say about me not liking to talk, is not true either. I love a good conversation! [By “good” I don’t mean that it should be about me.] I love to talk to you! You’re making me feel so much better…
Aw, thank you! You’re making me blush… It’s just my job…… Ehm… I’d like to start off with some basic questions about you. You have so much content that basic information about you is hard to find. But with this interview, not anymore!
What is your full name?
My full name is Dominique Daniëlle Elia.
What is your birth date?
Friday, November 1, 1996
Where were you born?
In het Sophia Kinderziekenhuis, in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands. It is part of the Erasmus Medical Center.
What do you do?
This is a question I get very often. There’s no simple answer to it, because what I do can’t be narrowed down to one thing that has already been done before.
I want to make the world a better place, by combining my love for business strategy, with my love for being creative in other ways. I want to use those two concepts, to come up with new concepts, which, as a result, make some serious improvements in the way we know life. I would love to not have to grow old, living the same routine. I would love to save people from that routine, if they would appreciate this, and introduce a new way of life. A way of life where we run the system, instead of the system running us.
Right now, I’m writing and seeking people who would like to engage in my project(s). Later, during Project Nosce Te Ipsum, I would love to release new music, finish the “piano symphony” I was writing and make the Nosce Te Ipsum movie, in which I play both Lil Fangs and Old Fangs. I want to show the masses that formal concepts and entertainment do go hand in hand, and that as a business owner, I can do these things, without it negatively affecting the other fields of my business I’m active in.
With my works, I combine aspects of many fields and introduce new concepts. I want to be a pioneer in the way “the classics” were pioneers. Ages ago, Mozart, Da Vinci, Aristotle, Plato and so on [you know the names, too…] were also active in different fields and introducing new things.
What is your first language?
My first language is Dutch.
What other languages do you speak?
English I can speak fluently. In German and French I can make myself clear to a large extent. Languages that derived from Latin, I can read and understand a little.
Why do you write in English?
Because English is a language many people know. Even in countries where it isn’t the first language. I want to be able to reach every single person on this Earth. With Dutch, my reach is a lot less large.
Another thing I like is that the in culture that comes with the English lanugage, people are less direct. I don’t appreciate directness. Especially not when it’s to purposely offend.
What is the latest education program you have finished?
“Het gymnasium”, which is the highest level of Dutch high school. I have attended two universities, but I have so many side-activities of which I think that they’re more enjoyable and a good addition to my future in the long run, that I haven’t finished the programs there. I still read books to add to my knowledge.
What’s your origin?
My parents were born in Surinam. Surinam knows many cultures. I am “Creools” [that’s “a mixture” of generations of slaves and slave owners. They were probably from Ghana and Portugal, I’ve heard], “Boeroe” [generations of post-slavery Dutch people who stayed in Suriname] and “Indiaan” [natives, who haven’t been slaves]. My father’s father, who I’ve never met, was born on the Bahamas. One of his parents was Bahamian and the other was Jamaican.
Describe your style of writing
“Rebellious”, hahaha. To prevent my writing from becoming “mechanic” and to keep the length of my texts to its minimum, I make long compound sentences. If I were to break everything down into single sentences, I think my texts would lose its character. This is against the writing standard I have been taught in school. [They say, “Keep your sentences short.”…..]
I sometimes break the rules of grammar, to make the text more clear. For example, I sometimes add a comma before “and” or “that”, when a sentence is very long, to make the relationships between the parts of the sentence more clear.
Another thing I consider a characteristic of mine, is rewriting sayings in such a way that they suit the context of my writing. I do this in Dutch more than in English. An example of this is: “Door de bomen het project niet meer zien,” instead of: “Door de bomen het bos niet meer zien.”
Also, I combine the use of formal and informal English, in such a way that it sounds like the way I speak.
What’s your height?
I’m 174 cm. That’s 5 feet and 8.5 inches.
Where do you live now?
In my parents’ house in Capelle aan den IJssel.
