Lovina Yavari is one of the coolest chicks around and she's absolutely killing it in the gamer and comic con realm. She's recently booked Shazam, Taken, Polar and Gangland Undercover and was kind enough to spare some time to chat. Check out our Q&A below:
What are some common misconceptions that people have about the gamer/comic con scene?
I'm not too sure anymore. Comics, Video Games, and Anime have been a huge part of pop culture over the last decade. I guess maybe some might find it intimidating to get into. There is a ton of fandoms. I've had some people ask me for advice when it came to reading comics. I do see how it can be a little overwhelming when you're starting out. There are over 100 monthly single issues being released, a lot of the DC and Marvel series have been rebooted. Anyone that feels that way should know, us nerds LOVE helping out and giving suggestions. We're friendly and quirky as shit, so don't be shy.
Where do you see yourself in a few years from now?
Having an insane amount of ridiculous skill sets under my belt and having my passport book completely filled. I want to get my pilot license, get back into robotics, own a loft, release my graphic novel, create avatars for VR Chat, and have an entire clothing line. I just have my jackets out at the moment. I collaborated with a Toronto based company called Pink City to bring my vision to life. They have a wicked line. There are a lot of things that I want to dip my hands into. I'd also love to invest into the Space X program when I have more bank.
Do you have a system that you use to achieve your goals?
I write all of my goals in a journal and daily planner. I find myself frequently adding to it. I have a 5 year plan and a yearly one that I stick to. I write monthly goals in my calendar, and daily ones on sticky notes that I leave on my mirror or laptop. They range from doing laundry, paying off bills, future travel goals, to designing concepts for my photo shoots or clothing designs. I've been sticking to this method since I was in a grade school. I haven't felt overwhelmed with tasks in years. I've learned to master breaking everything down into more manageable portions.
