Today we’d like to introduce you to Gavin Harris.
Gavin, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
So I start my journey back in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan. I was trying to figure out my next steps in life that’s when I first started modeling and writing my book. I didn’t think what I was doing first was possible because this was something I have never done. So last year, I work on my craft with modeling and acting to build the confidence I needed. Then I got my first job being extra in a movie that driven me more. After that, I start writing this book a game called life: Washington story to bring more light on what teenagers go through in high school and over the summer with the lack of parental supervision or lack of activities growing up in the inner city of a place with high crime rates. Once I knew what I wanted to do, I instantly felt that I had to take a chance and move to Los Angeles to push myself even harder. The road hasn’t been easy, but something I wouldn’t change at all.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s definitely tuff leaving my son and family behind to chase a dream or goal of mine that isn’t guaranteed.
Tell us more about your work.
The company I’ve started was basically to keep ownership of anything I create and make sure my family is able to benefit from my success in the future.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I wouldn’t say luck. This is more destined just something I was made for regardless of the road I might have took.
