Your Zodiac Sign:
Where are you from?
What’s your focus, purpose, passion, and contribution to the world?
Creating and learning are my passions and focus. I'm still folding into my purpose. The more I learn the closer I get to it. My contribution thus far has been my energy and resilience.
How do you do it and who do you do it with?
My passion? Well, I love acting and finding new ways to express myself artistically. Being able to bring characters to life and affect audiences is quite the joy. I act with my friends and when I book jobs. I am hoping more roles will come in and until then, I will continue creating my own.
What are your special talents?
Thoughtfulness. Resilience. Planning and organizing.
What are you working on at the moment?
What does your art mean to you?
It's my life or else I'd cease to exist.
What does love mean to you?
I'm not sure if I have a definition of it at this point. I'm letting it take shape for me because I've learned a lot of falsehoods about it. I've built a castle of expectations and visions of love. I believe in them, yes, but I'm willing to let go, too, and let love lead the way. When I think of Love, I refer to Musiq Soulchild's letter of a song called Love. Go listen.
How does your zodiac sign impact the way you love?
I'm hyper loyal, protective and a family person. This all means I love hard. I cherish my relationships and my home.
What does God mean to you?
God is Love.
When did you learn self-love?
I learned self-love as a teenager. Being bullied and having awful turmoil at home forced me to make some tough decisions about how I wanted to show up for myself.
How has practicing self-love changed your life?
I've always been able to get through and get by. As long as I've got me, I'm good.
What is your philosophy of life?
Be like water.
What advice would you give someone who is attempting to make a dream into a career?
A poem by Oriah Mountain Dreamer sums it up simply "I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing. It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being ALIVE... "
Nobody knows I am... stressed about global warming more than the average human-being. But hey, if the birds are still on my block, I guess, so am I.
I wish I could stop... doubting myself.
Self love means... taking care of your body, mind, and spirit. Doing things you enjoy without judgment and focusing on the lessons and not the failures. Being nice to yourself and using NO without doubt.
I find true beauty in… nature. God went off with Mother Nature.
I want to teach my child or children that... they already know who they are from the minute they come into this world. life is embracing change and the evolution of who you are. be curious, learn, and share.
