Rubi Anwar

Currently an Advertising Design student, Rubi  is hoping to go into the world of Advertising after she graduates. Overall a creative person, she is an artist, designer, illustrator, and so much more. You can see her work at http://the-creative-den.posterous.com/ and xrubix.deviantart.com. Rubi has created an illustration for the ?!X book, of Jo Keown’s future, one of “Peace, simplicity and non-violence towards all beings.” 

?!X: What’s the Future You Choose?

RA: I choose a future everyone is equal, and where people are not judged for there beliefs, or who they are.

?!X: What’s a ‘think’ to create this future?

RA: Kavindu “Kavi” Ade performing IT at 2010 BNV LA Team Philly

?!X: What’s an ‘act’ to create the future you choose

RA: Don’t look down on people because they are different, accept them. Don’t hate people for having a different religious viewpoint to you, respect them.

?!X: What’s a ‘vote’ to create the future you choose?

RA: This is a hard one to answer, there are so many different ways to help. I recently found out about http://missrepresentation.org/ which is a website set up to try to get rid of gender stereotypes, and hopefully make a change. You can see a trailer for a film they’ve done at http://vimeo.com/28066212. It seems to be mostly American so far, but I don’t see why we can’t be inspired about it too.

?!X: Future Soundtrack – What song would you take with you into the future? 

RA: It would have to be Jump Rope by Blue October, they are one of my favourite songs, and I have songs of theirs that I prefer, but Jump Rope reminds me that although I may be down at the minute, I can always get back up.

?!X: Can you share with us up to 5 weblinks that you find interesting and inspiring?
