I have always been a performer – acting, dancing, and creating comic relief for those around me. I remember as a child making my aunties and uncles cry with laughter at my impersonations during Thanksgiving day feasts.
I also remember putting on quite a few “performances” for my parents over the years. Mom always said I had a flair for the dramatic 🙂
To this day, I find so much pleasure in bringing entertainment to others, whether it be through drama or comedy.
I have a deep respect for theatre. It is a truly amazing experience to be with an audience during a production. There really aren’t words to describe the energetic exchange that happens between actors and their audience. It is utterly thrilling!
I am also head-over-heels in love with film. As a child, I would escape into movies as often as I could, and cherished the moments I could spend with my television. This ultimately developed into what my husband calls, “A TV problem”. And I’m totally OK with that.
When I am performing, I feel utterly alive! Whether I am on stage, in an acting class, or in a film, I find myself when I am performing.
What brings you home to yourself? What makes you feel alive?
