Mae in one sentence: Vanessa is a stunningly beautiful Asian woman and a greatly talented violinist.
You don't need a ring to say I love you.
Everything I do designates a time in my life.
I find variety very liberating.
It is great to have a talent, but in the end it all comes to dedication and practicing.
I would like to see myself as a role model.
I can get inspiration from any moment in my life.
It is important to take a break.
Without a listener, there is no music.
I enjoy being different.
I speak to people through my violin; my violin is my partner in my musical life, without it I don’t really fit to other people.
Maybe I will be remembered as someone who bastardized classical music, but I injected fun into a violin.
I know how to make money, but I don’t know how to make it grow.
