Rita Ora, the multi-talented singer, songwriter, and actress, has recently opened up about her journey to success in a new interview. The artist, who has been in the music industry for over a decade, reflects on her past and emphasizes the importance of cherishing opportunities.
From Kosovo to London: A Journey of Triumph
Ora arrived in England as a refugee from Kosovo and has since built a successful career in the music industry. She recognizes the significance of her journey and how it has shaped her into the person she is today.
In her own words, "At this point in my career – I’ve been in the game 10 plus years now – I felt it was important to remind the public, as well as myself, of the journey." Ora goes on to say, "I want to open up people's perception of a girl like me coming from a third world country like Kosovo, and yes, being a refugee and coming into the UK and my dreams coming true." She emphasizes that she is grateful for the opportunities she has been given and never takes them for granted.
The singer is aware of the difficulties that many immigrants face and is proud to have overcome these obstacles through hard work and determination.
Never Taking Opportunities for Granted
Ora's success story is a testament to the power of perseverance and determination.
She reminds herself every day of how lucky she is to be able to do what she loves, and never takes it for granted. The artist says, "I know I deserve it because I work really hard. But there’s a lot of kids like me from where I’m from that it doesn’t really happen for.
So I never take it for granted." She also acknowledges the power of the media and how it can shape public perception. "It’s incredibly hard to not be swayed when you see things being written every day," says Ora. "It’s almost like because it’s written in the papers it must be the truth.
But you have to remember there’s a lot of people that you might be listening to or that you watch on TV that have immigrant roots."
A Advocate for the Underprivileged
Rita Ora has been a long-time supporter of UNICEF UK and their work with refugees.
In 2019, she was appointed as a UNICEF UK Ambassador and has been actively involved in advocating for the rights of refugees and underprivileged children. The artist's journey and success story serve as a source of inspiration for many and a reminder of the importance of never giving up on one's dreams.
Rita Ora's journey from refugee to music icon is a story of triumph over adversity. Her unwavering determination, hard work, and gratitude for the opportunities she has been given serve as a testament to the power of perseverance.
