Rising Stars: Meet Cemo Basen

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cemo Basen. 

Hi Cemo, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My name is Cemo Basen. I was born and raised in slums in Pakistan. 

I was not able to eat twice in a day till the age of 15. But always in the back of my mind there was a voice that someday life will be changed. 

I moved to America with a dream to become an actor. My biggest role model is Johnny Depp. I started making videos on Instagram but never thought that I will become an influencer. 

Today I have a family of 1.7M followers on Instagram and have been on multiple news. 

Life is crazy. I never stopped dreaming. 

Every day I love to make videos and entertain the audience. 

Still dream is to get into Hollywood and make it big but I am also happy where I am today. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It was not easy at all. Beginning when I moved to America had a lot of problems financially. Been homeless for months. But never stopped dreaming. 

I remember I told some of my family friends that I wanna to become an actor and influencer but they never believed me and made fun of me instead. All the negativity made me more keen to work hard in life 

From 2 years never looked back and making content every day. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am an influencer/ artist/ activist Love to lift people up so they can do whatever they want to and most importantly what they love to do in life. 

I am known as an influencer. 

I am proud of what I achieved till now as an influencer but still best yet to come. 

I am great full what I achieved but still, there is long way to go to get into Hollywood and be in Pirates of Caribbean. 

The thing sets me apart from others is that I lift everyone up around me to better in life. 

What was your favorite childhood memory?
Don’t have good childhood memories as I said I was raised in slums and poverty but the day when I first saw Johnny Depp 

Pirates of Caribbean and from there I decided to become an actor like him
