Hey Franz! I hope everyone is having a great summer. This summer has definitely been one to remember. It’s been such a stressful yet rewarding roller coaster ride for me so far. I guess the summer right after graduating from college is hectic for most people so I’m trying to remain positive and hopeful. This past week I’ve filmed three different projects, one of which was for the Showtime television show called “The Chi”. My experience filming for “The Chi” was honestly amazing. I was reminded yet again how much I love acting. Everything I go through as an actor is worth it when I’m on camera doing what I love. I met so many different people and was challenged in ways I had never been (watch the episode to find out why). Because I booked a role on my third television show, I had to join the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). I’m super nervous and excited for this next chapter in my career. I know it’s only going to get bigger and better.
I also joined the cast of “Haymarket” with Underscore Theatre as the understudy for Lucy Parsons, the lead! I’m super thrilled for this opportunity because I have several guaranteed performances. I’ve never been a lead in a show let alone a musical. I’ve never had voice lessons. Everything with me regarding musical theatre is self taught with the exception of maybe 2 or 3 lessons my entire life. I’ve always felt insecure about my singing ability because of that. However, this opportunity and of course some confidence building showed me I’m just as talented and capable of performing in a musical alongside people with years of training and shine just as bright! I hope you all can make my performances :)
Every day is different. I’m trying to remain present and better myself each day. I’m so grateful for everything in my life- the good and the bad. I’m so grateful for the universe. I’m so grateful for those of you who take time out of your day to read my blogs and poetry. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
