Talented SA Singer Elaine has let in on how she has been fairing since she made a career location change by moving to LA permanently earlier this year. She has revealed the move made her learn more about herself and her goals.
She reflected on this during an Instagram Q&A, the You’re The One hitmaker shared her experience of adjusting to staying in a different country far from home.
“It’s been a huge learning curve. I’m learning a lot about myself which I’m grateful for. I miss my family and friends so much but I’m having a great ass time,” she wrote.
Elaine has been on a mission to get her music recognised on a global scale, and her big move to the US has got her closer to achieving that dream as she was nominated for Best International Act at the BET awards this year
The 22-year-old singer who graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand earlier this year went on to shed light on how she managed to juggle her academics with her budding career.
“Time management, discipline and a really solid support structure helped me through my studies. My main priority was making sure I was always up to date because there’s nothing worse than catching up. There were also times I couldn’t make it to campus or lectures but I had a really solid study group and they were riding for me hard as ever during that time.” she said.
“Practising is currently the furthest thing on my mind. I did apply and get accepted to do my LLB this year but I decided to put that on hold because I’m not in a place where I can commit to that right now. I also didn’t enjoy the university experience. I’ll revisit it in the future but for now, strictly album mode.”
