olIn an interview with Ric Hassani admitted that fame scares him but he only wants to be a positive impact in other people’s lives. Ric explained that “What i really want is to be used by God for something great. i’m not just trying to be famous and look cool and the extra. To be very honest, fame really scares me alot. I’m a shy person, well.. not exactly shy but I’d say; careful person. I really like peace, i really like just… being peaceful and simple and going about a simple and personally fulfilling and nice life. There’s alot of pandemonium and just weird stuff that goes with fame. Fame is alot. I just want to be used by God to do good and great things, I think that’s a kind of satifaction that cannot be bought. I’m really a student of life, and I’m just.. continously fascinated by life, existence, creation, and the creator. I want to be used by God for something great.”
