Anna

Hello Stirlingites!
Today we have an interview from ...Belgium! 

Rene
Welcome to our Interview, would you please introduce yourself?
Anna
Hi, I'm Anna! My instagram: annaop3 (private account) My twitter: @annarock03
Rene
Which Country are you from?
Anna
I'm from Belgium
Rene
A short introduction about yourself?
Anna
I'm from Belgium and I'm an administrative employee. I love so much mangas and watching anime! I do this all the time during my free time. I do cosplay as well!! So I'm learning how to sew and I hope I can make my own costumes someday. For the moment, I do the accessories and my mom helps me to make my costumes. The mangas I love the most are: D. Gray-Man, Uta no-prince sama, One Piece, Black Butler, K Project etc.
Rene
When did you learn about Lindsey or started listening to her music?
Anna
I don't remember exactly the date or month when I discovered Lindsey, but I know it's in 2012 🙂 At random, one of my friends on Facebook shared one of her videos and she wrote like it's the best thing she ever listened to. So, by curiosity, I cliked on the link and listened to the song, which was "Crystallize" 😉 I really loved the song and found it so original!
Rene
Are you a Stirlingite?
Anna
Yes, of course!
Rene
When did you switch from simply listening to the music to beeing a fan?
Anna
I didn't wait a long time. A few days after I discovered "Crystallize", I became a big fan as I listened to other songs too and I started following Lindsey on Facebook.
Rene
Did you read the book?How did you like it?
Anna
Yes I did! I really liked it and it inspired me so much! I like the way Lindsey shares a lot of her personal life with the fans and I personaly appreciate that. The chapter that I'll always remember is the chapter "No Man's Land" because I can identify myself to Lindsey as I found some things similar to me. Before reading the book, I didn't realize she struggled that much in her eating disorder so I admire her for not giving up and for finding hapiness after.
Rene
Does Lindsey have a special place in your life ?
Anna
Yes, sure! When I had a bad day or I go thought a bad time, she always helps me to chin up and to stay positive like she always does. I watch her videos or concerts and listen to her speeches for the fans, and it really works! We can always go thought bad times and go well after. Her music can inspire anyone and her story as well.
Rene
How did you like the Documentary ?
Anna
I watched her documentary several times and I cried every time haha There are some sad moments like with Gavi or her dad, it touches every time. After watching it the first time, I felt so inspired and that I really should't listen to what others think of me or what they say about me because it really doesn't matter. Everyone should do what they love without giving up and without listening to others. If you believe in yourseld and in what you're doing and don't give up, you can accomplish anything and Lindsey proved that.
Rene
What are your three favorite tracks from Lindsey ?
Anna
My favourite song is Roundtable rival! The two others are hard to choose, but I would say Take Flight and Beyond the Veil.
Rene
Have you been to a concert?
Anna
Yes, in Luxembourg on my birthday on 18th March 2017, my first one.
Rene
Have you attended a meet&greet?
Anna
Yes, I'm so happy! It was my first Meet and Greet, I was so nervous but happy to be there and I couldn't believe that I would meet Lindsey in person ... She's so kind and so sweet! She gives really good hugs and tries to talk to you even when the person is shy haha In my case, I am but for that occasion I decided not to be shy as It was the only opportunity when I could speak to Lindsey so after the picture, I talked to her a bit and I was really happy and proud of myself! She and Drew wished me happy birthday and I think it was one of my best birthday ever!
Rene
Did you bring a present?
Anna
Yes I did, but I couldn't give them to her in person as we didn't have much time for the Meet and Greet unfortunately ... So Lindsey's staff collected all the presents, including mine, before the M&G to give them to her. I wrote a long letter to her (8 pages haha) and gave her a doll, chocolate and a bear hat.
Rene
How did you feel when Lindsey was posing with you?
Anna
I couldn't believe I was taking a picture with Lindsey and that I finally met her after all these years ... Like in a dream! I saw her on Instagram the day before and then she was in front of me, it's a really weird feeling but also exciting!
Rene
Three favorites of you!
Anna
So... my favourite colors is black and red; favourite food is really hard but I would say Raclette and favourite country Japan!
Rene
What music do you listen to if not from Lindsey?
Anna
I love pop and rock music! I love Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, ... and among bands My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Green Day, Muse, etc. A lot of artists who really kill it!
Rene
A personal shoutout to Lindsey?
Anna
Hello Lindsey! I would like to say thank you for everything you do for the fans! Not lots of artists are like you and I really appreciate that! You help me every day with your music and your messages! If I don't give up on the things I love and have the courage to keep going, it's mostly thanks to you! Thanks to your carrer and your story you shared, I can think I can do the same as you and good things will happen 🙂 Please keep being yourself and doing such beautiful songs and videos! Thank you also for your kindness at the M&G in Luxembourg! I hope you like my presents and I hope to meet you again soon! Best concert ever!
Rene
Another shoutout to the others of the band&crew?
Anna
Hello Drew and Kit! Thank you for your kindness at M&G! I hope you'll stay Lindsey's musicians forever on every tour because you are the best!
