Sometimes I get scared. I get scared that I will not reach my dreams. I see people younger than me booking jobs and I often wonder why I am not. Am I not good enough? Am I not pretty enough? Do I not fit the image of an "actress" with my weird style and natural hair? I work so hard and I just want my big break to come already. I've always been the impatient type and that is something I am working on. I've learned that I can't compare my path to any one else's. We all have different lives and my big break will eventually come as long as I do one thing: Never Give Up. I admit sometimes I wonder why I am working so hard to only constantly get rejected. I know it's becasue when I will finally reach the top of that hill, I will be able to look out into the world and think back on everything I have gone through to be there. I saw Lion King The Musiscal recently and I was blown away. Seeing people of color doing what I dream of doing is such an inspitation. Almost every show I go to has an all white cast and maybe one minority sprinkled into the ensemble. It was a beautiful sight to see. One day I know that will be me on stage, inspiring another young black girl to never give up on her dreams.
