Pro Media Mag : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career.
Nicholas Zacky : My name is Nicholas Zacky I’m 29 years old My day job is currently being a butler with a 5 star hotel.Started my first job in working in a supermarket, as young as 16 years Old. Moved to worked for a retail store also for a couple of months.
Did a couple of cool jobs after like did the opening for Abercrombie & Fitch when they brought the first store to Singapore and during the night I was working as a club promoter getting commission for every bottler of liquor I sold and getting paid like 7$ for every girl I brought into the club. Got to learn so much from all this odd jobs looking back at them it totally define who I am today.
And when I was 18 years old it’s compulsory for every Male Singaporean citizen to serve the country for 2 years. I got the chance to be a sergeant in the Singapore civil defence force where I was leading a group of 20 fireman.
It was indeed the best 2 years of my life and with so much great memories and got to meet some really great people who I don’t called brother but I called them family.
When I turn I 21, I nailed Me-self my first full time job where I joined a prestigious airline as a flight attendant, where I spend 5 years.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into writing?
Nicholas Zacky : Honestly I ain’t the biggest fan of writing neither am I a biggest fan of reading books. I remember how much I hated reading books when my parents forced me to read to improve on my English, and here we are today with my Very own published book.
I started writing after flying with a 5 star airlines for 5 years I was a flight attendant. After flying I release that I had I a lot of events and misfortune that would make a great book.
I was once out with my boys we were having a couple of drinks, and I’m always that guy in the table always talking and sharing all kinds of stories and that night I was just doing my thing, and my mate goes like dude if you were to ever write a book I’ll be the first one buying it. And that’s when it hits me and I wanted to do whatever it takes to get my book published.
Pro Media Mag : You have released your book “Blessed” recently. What kind of response you have received so far?
Nicholas Zacky : It’s been great , So far I’m only selling to close friends and family. Some friends are telling me on the grammatical errors on the book , and their feedbacks may be not be positive but it’s all good hey its my first book you can’t expect a JK Rowling outta my first book.
Pro Media Mag : You need some specific kind of environment for writing?
Nicholas Zacky : Starbucks or any coffee shops are always very healthy places for me to write I get very distracted at home when I’m writing So getting anywhere helps with writing

Nicholas Zacky : Getting the book “ blessed “ completed and published was such a huge relief and such a great accomplishment nice me-self. And it’s the biggest thing I’ve done so far in my life and I can’t wait for the next chapter.
Pro Media Mag : Are you working on any new project?
Nicholas Zacky : As of now I do not have any plans on writing my second book But I will say no when the opportunity arrives I never like to limit myself telling myself to do this and not to do that.
