My name is Daniel Romolliwa I am of French Canadian and African descent. On june 4th, 1981 I was fortunate to be born into a metaphysical family that always encouraged the questioning of all things. I have lived all over Canada, even as far north as one can go by road, and I never stay in one place for to long as I consider myself to be some what of a wild horse, a free spirit if you will that refuses to conform to any form of slavery that society and the general public have willingly accepted as acceptable, from fluoridated water, to unnecessary vaccines, and meaningless and thankless jobs, to the extreme over use of fossil fuels, and paper money backed by nothing other than false promises just to name a few conditions that I stand ready to challenge.
I’m a certified personal trainer, lyricist and a black belt martial artist with 15 years experience and counting. I hold an honorary black belt in both Taekwon-do and Judo, and an official black belt in Shobudo which is a combination of joint locks, strikes, submissions and chokes. Although I enjoy and feel it necessary to keep these skills polished in my spare time, this is a battle of consciousness and martial arts is simply another path of many in the development of mind/body/spirit. There are many paths to the top of the mount.
Between the ages of 6 and 10, I had a very profound experience which triggered one of many to come and found myself in absolute tears starring out my family’s living room window. I was gazing into the night sky and had an overwhelming sense of missing my home! I have no clue now or at that time where this home is all I knew is that I missed it deeply. I was already beginning to see that the world was not as it seemed and that something was wrong, and I had many questions some of which have been answered and some of which have not been answered even to this day. I was a very aware child and had very intelligent self conversation that when looking back on it, is far beyond what the average 6 year old should be comprehending and or thinking about. I remember looking at the cover of time magazine at the age of 8 and wondering how money was printed, who printed it, and why some people didn’t have food and others did? I developed a great intolerance for lies at a very young age upon discovering one year or so later that poverty existed due to greed and greed only as opposed to the lack of resources. Another great lie!!
I am many things to many people an angel to some, a monster to others. I am mostly seen as a monster to the status quo, as I am indeed an enemy of the current system and way of doing things which in my opinion is completely upside down and on it’s head. However change is the only constant in life and a change is indefinite and upon us for better or worse, as myself and others at DYC work towards the betterment of all things here on planet earth.
Time is now, and during this time it’s equally important to heal the minds of the youth it’s important that they understand it’s not them who are upside down, it’s the current state of the system that has failed them, and not the other way around.
What are you deeply passionate about?
I’m deeply passionate about learning and evolving as a human being, as a creative mind, as an example of what can be, and what is possible. In other words I’m passionate about life in general and the mysteries that surround us in every form and fashion. Now if I had to narrow this down it would translate it’s self into music and acting, as I am both a lyricist and actor. My music grows and matures as I too grow and mature, this is the natural evolution of things.
How can DYC manifest that passion?
Hands down DYC is a perfect platform for this very thing. DYC doesn’t exclude others based on personal beliefs, nor does it exclude any subject matter or topic, as all topics and all subject matter stem from ones level of consciousness to begin with! DYC has great potential to link like minds, and to remind people that for lack of a better choice of words, having a positive message for the youth and speaking out in positive way can still be sexy and cool!
What can we make DYC the best at?
DYC has the potential to be one of the best online communities for the youth and anyone one else that is looking for more substance, than what’s found on mainstream outlets. DYC can be a place where the youth can go from confusion and distraction, to understanding and meaning. A demonstration that thinking in a different way than the old paradigm did which so obviously isn’t working anymore, and conducting ourselves in a different way on this planet than we have in the past, doesn’t translate to something negative and scary but rather something that is needed if we wish to restore harmony in all of it’s many forms, both on this planet and in the hearts and minds of the human species.
