This is PoeticSoul, one of RECYCLE ME´s amazing friends. We had the chance to interview her about her engagement in the RECYCLE ME movement. Read about her, what inspires and motivates her!

 “I feel that RECYCLE ME is one of the organizations that have set themselves up to do the job, and make people aware of the importance of maybe considering organ donation in spite the different cultures and religions that are out there that may have different opinions on it. It's nice that they still stand and be like "Yeah, we are going to promote awareness on organ donation"” -PoeticSoul
Thank you PoeticSoul for your engagement in Organ Donation Awareness and your kind words! Full interview below;

Who are you and where do you live, would you like to say something about your background and family, friends?
-I am PoeticSoul, I am from the Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa. I am the second of three children, I have a mom and a dad. I am a performance poet and I love writing and influencing people's thoughts with my words, very careful in using my words carefully hoping that will bring some sort of change in the world.

What inspires you as a person and in your music?

-Life in general all the different circumstances that people survive everyday. The idea that there is a bigger plan and the beauty of life, I guess is what inspires me as a poet and what inspires my music as well. Also the idea that you can take a very painful experience and put it together with music and people can find joy in listening to it, but at the same time getting the message behind all of that.

How would you describe your music?
-I don't know if there is a description to it. I just know that it´s sounds that move me, sounds that I am always trusting that they will have a positive influence when they find the ears of another person and within the body of that person. It's music you know, it´s funky, it´s vibey, its exciting, it´s jazzy and it´s African. It's all parts and pieces of who I am. So I don't have a description in terms of " it´s this kind of genre". I think for me, I always just describe it as the perfect marriage between two art forms. The perfect marriage between poetry and music, where poetry doesn't diminish in the presence of music and music doesn't diminish in the presence of poetry, so they are the perfect couple that support each other.

What motivates you as a person and as a musician?

-What motivates me as a person, uuhm well ... I read a lot and I am a believer so I guess I get my motivation from alot of spiritual teachers and also from my faith as well so that's where most of my motivation comes from. I am also a big self motivator, in the space where people think I can't I tell myself that I can, and that's my motivation, everyday to just know that I am able to do whatever I want to do just as long as I ask for the ability to do it from the most high.

Why do you chose to stand/take part in the RECYCLE ME movement about organ donation?

- I think because mine is to spread the word through my poetry. I find that any movement that seeks to preserve life is a worthy cause to be part of and I have the faith that my words over the RECYCLE ME movement will assist in spreading the word across the world about organ donation, because sometimes you stand afar and think that an issue like organ donation doesn't affect you. But that is only until it actually does come to you, so as much as right now am not in need of an organ I would like to think that me spreading the word in the mean-time will assist those that do need organs and maybe one day I might be in a position where I need an organ donation or I am on an opportunity to be an organ donor and therefore preserve life.

Is there something you like to change like anything in the cause of organ donation or other movement, topics, anything sky’s no limit!
-I think in terms of organ donation the ideal is to have a situation where in organs can travel faster across the spaces where they are needed, create a situation where every person is an organ donor and therefore there wouldn't be such a great and dire need and a desperate need for organs because they would be readily available. And I guess maybe changing the supply for organs would be really nice, but otherwise in as far as the awareness is taking place, I feel that RECYCLE ME is one of the organizations that have set themselves up to do the job, and make people aware of the importance of maybe considering organ donation in spite the different cultures and religions that are out there that may have different opinions on it. It's nice that they still stand and be like "Yeah, we are going to promote awareness on organ donation"

This is ballet dancer Benita Bünger, one of RECYCLE ME´s incredible ambassadors! We had the chance to interview her about her engagement in the RECYCLE ME movement. Read about what inspires and motivates her!

When you're saving someone's life, you will become a part of history. You may not become famous, but you will be in that family's hearts forever. You can do that. How amazing is that? The power we have as humans. It's a choice. And I think everyone should make it.”  - Benita Bünger

- Who are you and where do you live, would you like to say something about your background and family, friends?

I live in Christianshavn, right across the canal and famous Christiania in Denmark. I live here with my boyfriend, our cat Prince and puppy Sherlock. 

-  What inspires you as a person and in your dance profession?

Different things inspire me; my own perception of my own dreams is very important to me, like dreaming about dancing a special part is one thing. But to me it is how you dance it, make it your own, make it art, that's what's inspiring - what you do as an artist with the "cards you are dealt". Very often it is also my curiosity is what brings inspiration for me as a person (and therefore of course also artist). Like instead of thinking how crazy the world is for voting Trump their new president, I think it's interesting to think about what makes people do what they do? What are they waiting for in their lives? What are their dreams and fear, daily worries? Something that must have made them to make the decisions they did, voting in that way. That to me is interesting and can inspire many new thoughts about our life and the world in general. 

-  How would you describe your artwork as a dancer?

It's hard. Physically is one thing, I hate being in pain - mostly because I want to take good care of my body. But mentally is beyond hard, I can hardly describe it. You go through so many ups and downs in your career. Confidence is never promised and the pressure is never off your shoulders. So, I guess you just learn how to deal with it. The crazy thing is, just when you think you find your way around it, something happens. You get so nervous, you may forget to control your muscles and screw up your moment and you are back to where you started. 

- What motivates you as a person and as a dancer?

My idea of my future (little dreams connected hand in hand) motivates me. I may be hard on myself, but I'd rather go down trying than thinking I could have done more. I don't think I could forgive myself. However, having a sense of what's actually realistic is key to being successful and reaching your dreams. I've spend a lot of time running around, not finding my place, trying to save the whole world. You can't. No Yin without Yang. What you can do is spread a whole lot of Yin where ever you go. Smiles, laughs and conversations with directions. Nothing more motivating to me. And then people have a sense of their fortune in life. That's beautiful to me too. It motivates us all. It's just beautiful. 

-  Why do you choose to take part in the RECYCLE ME movement about organ donation?

 As soon as I read about RECYCLE ME I knew I wanted to be a part of this message to the world. I was anxious to buy T-shirts and jewelry to support the concept. You can tell this project is based on kind hearted people, who have gratitude in their souls. I've been an organ donor since I was 18 and I encourage people to do so all the time. I think it's important to share just how easy it is for people to make a difference here in the world. And it's an educational perspective, to see it from the other side. What if it happened to us, wouldn't we beg for someone to help? When you're saving someone's life, you will become a part of history. You may not become famous, but you will be in that family's hearts forever. You can do that. How amazing is that? The power we have as humans. It's a choice. And I think everyone should make it.
