We had the good fortune of connecting with Zantavius Fuller and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Zantavius, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I chose to purse an artistic career because I knew as a child I was different. I always danced , singed , wrote poems and etc instead of doing typical rough boy hobbies . And I knew my talent was special so I felt the need to embrace as much of it as I can. And I’ve always had a group of supportive family members that always pushed me to go further. This leads me to being the creative and artistic individual that I am today.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My career has been a whirlwind actually . I started out as a college grad with a nursing degree but i knew I didn’t wanna pursue that field yet . So I started applying for agencies and started modeling as well as acting . I’ve done several roles in films and background roles. Then became a flight attendant and traveled the world . Then back to nursing and now entrepreneur. I always knew I could do more and I didn’t limit myself at all. So that’s how I got to where I am today. There were several challenges but I look at the bad as a lesson and I kept things pushing . I want the world to know that you can do ANYTHING . Never let anyone stop you or distract you . Focus focus focus . And also , check out ZAM dance studio, one of the newest dance studios in Atlanta for kids and adults .. with a gym and photography room.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’d always recommend my friends to check out downtown Atlanta and explore the little aspects of Atlanta rather than the big scenery. As there is so much to learn and appreciate about the area .

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to shoutout all of my dance instructors and receptionists that work hard everyday in pursing my passion and dreams . I’d also like to recognize my mother , Jennifer, as she is the one that pushes me everyday. .
