MODEL ACTRESS SINGER
In time, I have come to the realization that the work I do is important. It’s vital. It’s significant and noble.
During my beginners two week intensive at the Shaw Festival, Jim Mezon said, “What we do is noble.” But if I’m honest with myself, I didn’t believe him. My first year at Shaw help me navigate my way to this truth.
Now I stand firm, as an artist and individual, with the belief that what we have chosen is a higher calling. One that is often misunderstood as a selfish ambition and rarely defined for its selflessness. I see my work as an act of service to the people. We hold a mirror to our audiences and teach them of life, love, and loss. As I live out the sufferings and successes, the pains and joys of faceless characters, I do this in hopes of their growing understanding, compassion, forgiveness, love, and ultimately, a deeper sense of self.
