Agon Hare (Haremski Damian) was born on 15 May 1989 in Żory town, Poland.
He grew up in Poland and had a difficult childhood.
At 3, Agon’s father deserted him and his mother, Dorota Haremska and also stole all their money including savings to escape to a foreign country.
This severely impacted his mother and his disturbed mother would often take out her anger by beating Agon.
She raised him as a single mother but at 11, he lost her and even though his father attended her funeral, he didn’t accept to take his care.
And from that point onwards, Agon started deeply hating his father.
Raised by grandparents-
Fortunately, Agon’s grandparents adopted him.
His grandparents gave him the freedom to do whatever he liked but he became a bully, racist and homophobe.
Agon wasn’t a good student at school and didn’t get good grades and his teachers opined that he couldn’t do well in life.
Love for music-
Since his childhood, Agon loved music and he later became a singer and music producer in Poland.
He has a song by the name Night Caller on NoCopyrightSounds .
A life-changing nightfall-
At 18, Agon wasn’t at all happy with his life.
And on one nightfall, he decided to transform himself and leave his past behind.
So, Agon decided to change his name, leave his country and forgive his father.
At 22, he changed his name from Haremski to Agon so as to remind himself of the agony that he faced while growing up.
Agon’s mother tongue was Polish, and he was bad at English at school and as he wanted to travel to English speaking countries, he learnt English by listening to English music, watching English movies and playing English games and eventually he learnt speaking English.
Forgiving his father-
Agon forgave his father after learning that he too had a difficult childhood as he was adopted and was a troubled teenager.
And thanks to this, he stopped seeing his father as an enemy and started seeing him as a vulnerable human.
Shifting to London-
Around 2013, Agon shifted to London and here, he worked as a store manager in a fast food chain for three years.
He also worked in a recycling centre and travelled around the world, and this influenced his accent.
As one nightfall transformed his life, Agon later named his online ventures (YouTube channel, Facebook page, etc.) as Project Nightfall.
