Erica’s career took off when she was just seven years old. She hates to see those around her unhappy and tries to switch their mood, hence the name DJ Switch.

Erica said in one interview, “I picked the name DJ Switch because I switch up people’s happiness. I am not only a DJ but also a poet, dancer, motivational speaker, actress, and advocate. I also want my parents, teachers, CNN, BBC or France24 and the world to know that being a DJ is just the beginning of my goals, I want to become a gynecologist and help women around the world eventually”, she ended.
