Live a little
One person that inspires us with his desire for a happy life is Noa del Castillo. Noa is probably known to you as one of our most frequently used models, but the reason for working with him is as much dependent on his great personality as it is on his looks.
21 year old Noa is somewhat in the middle of a quarter-life crisis but not hesitant at all to let us in on the pros and cons of being right on the edge of where it all could, or should, happen.
– My friends say that I’m the most carefree person they know. That’s true in a sense; I don’t care much about things or money, as long as I get by. What I do care a lot about are all non-materialistic things like music, my relationships and maybe most of all good memories. Creating them and saving them is what makes up a life and what makes us human.
– It might sound like the cheesiest thing in the world but I need to stay happy and to have the ability to make other people happy is really important to me. Music has become a great way to connect with people and to find a natural affinity. It’s also a way to express myself without judgment, I mean no one can tell for sure what’s real and what’s not.
Noa stopped by our headquarter to perform his new song "We Get It”. For him, happiness and simplicity in life are closely linked, and the strive towards being 100% yourself is his greatest motivator for creativity and freedom. Having played on the streets of Gothenburg Noa has a simple and yet inspiring vision of where the music should take him.
– My goal with my music is to make people happy, how or where is not really important, as long as I can put a smile on one person’s face I’m satisfied!
