After hundreds of auditions and nothing, you're sitting home and wondering, 'What am I doing?'
Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That's my life motto.

Sometimes you don't know who you can and cannot trust. I still learn that over and over again.
I try to keep it real. I don't have time to worry about what I'm projecting to the world. I'm just busy being myself.
