I've decided to travel to Trinidad with a coworker as a gift to myself and an added bonus to the independence development I'm currently going through. Although I'm not by myself 100%, the trip to another country without my family to rely on is a huge deal alone. Finding a detachment from my family is… Continue reading Next: Trip to Trinidad.
I have a confession to make: I have realized my anxiety has been stopping me from fully giving myself to acting.

I love this part of me, I am vulnerable and I care about everything. Before, I hated this; I didn't… Continue reading Owning The Part You’re Most Judged About.
I’m home, safe, comfortable, un-guarded, surrounded by familiarity, in my own bed, my own books, my own aura. I look out of the window and everything I see is old and familiar; I can visualize the inside looking at it from the outside because I’ve been inside plenty of times before. My shoulders are relaxed,… Continue reading Virginia.
This coming week I’m traveling to Virginia for acting purposes. Not only am I crazy excited and scared, but I’m also nervous for the big learning experience that comes with traveling by yourself and taking that leap into adulthood. I’ve always wanted to travel alone around the world, but financially I’m not ready and mentally… Continue reading First Trip Alone: Virginia.
