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?
I use to go into an audition thinking to myself I’m not good enough or comparing myself to others. Having lack of confidence, allowing insecurity to allow me not to have a strong performance. I had to stop looking to the left or right but just look straight ahead. I had to be confident in myself and my talents staying focus knowing I am doing the best I Can!

If you know you did your best, then be proud of that! You did not quit. Quiting is the easy way out, keep going no matter what. I listen to my inner voice to keep going, you’re almost there. I Surround myself with people who are willing to support and help me. Having a Smile on my face keeping a positive attitude, turning my impossible to possible! And turn my can’t to I CAN!

I’m blessed to have friends and family with their prayers and support. But the number one thing that keeps me going is my faith knowing that God knows how hard I have worked and how much time I put in my work. I know with God all things are possible. Do not let fear get in the way and don’t worry about anything. I have to let go and give it to the Lord.

In my struggle, I strived to make myself stronger, that I can and will overcome whatever obstacles that may come across my path. No matter how hard it may get don’t give up. I am breaking down walls that held me back in the past and gaining it with Strength, Courage, and Confidence.
