I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE DJ!
You’ve likely heard her name before, or gasped at her social media pictures as she travels around the world. Maybe you’ve even wondered how she keeps herself looking on fleek all the time. Well, I took some time this week to get the 411 from the lovely Zi
Jenna: By now I think it's public knowledge that you're engaged to an international DJ, what's that been like?
Big Z: To be very honest, its awesome! I've experienced all sorts of different opportunities I probably would not have if I hadn't met Stephen. More specifically travel, that's the best part! I've been to so many new territories, Japan for instance, and I’ve experienced so many different carnivals in places I'd never imagine such as Hollywood. I've also met some fantastic and talented people along this journey and now I can brag and say I have links!
Jenna: When the video of your engagement hit social media, what was that like?
Big Z: Oh boy! That was a shock on every level! The proposal in itself blew me away, but the encouragement and the support I received from everyone, even complete strangers was mind blowing and very uplifting. The world is full of good people promoting love! #loveislovely
Jenna: You're quite a popular figure yourself, what's it like for the two of you? How do you handle all that popularity in one couple?
Big Z: Without sounding cliché, we have great chemistry and we compliment each other very well. I never thought it would be possible, I swear! I'm a believer of happy relationships but never thought I would get so lucky.
Jenna: Since you've meet Stephen, what would say has changed in your life?
Big Z: Oh boy, we're gonna be here all day with this one! So much has changed it's crazy! Recently we were saying whilst driving home one night, that just a year ago we both would've never thought we would be where we are today. However, the main change for me would have to be my perspective on life now. I am thinking about my future with a family.
Jenna: DJs are known to have a reputation. Did that ever bother you, and does it now?
Big Z: They sure do! In my previous life I said I would never date a DJ, especially after getting into the events and carnival business. To add to that I formed some great friendships with a lot of them so it wasn't in my purview. Now I stand corrected! A solid friendship is how Stephen and I started and equally of importance is timing. He was ready and so was I. We're not worried.
Jenna: Do you consider yourself his biggest groupie?
Big Z: Let’s just say there are some real groupies out there! That's a hard one, but I'm his biggest supporter, even when he's wrong… which is rare [laughs]. Supporting him is so good for me though, I get inspired, driven and courageous. Jenna: What are some of the challenges? Big Z: In his opinion, me getting time off from work to travel with him! It sucks sometimes. Some people ask about whether our ability to communicate suffers because of the distance but Stephen has been outstanding in that regard. I confess I'm a tad spoiled and do get unreasonable once in a while!
Jenna: How far have you guys gotten with wedding planning?
Big Z: Telling our parents not to overdo it with the guest list while still expecting them to pay for the wedding! Jenna: Any ideas in mind? Big Z: Just tonight my dad came up with the theme: Tops and Tails. Google it!
Jenna: What does the next five years look like for you guys? Big Z: #wEJAMMinstill
Supporting him is so good for me though. I get inspired, driven and courageous.
