Acting has benefited me personally in countless ways. What moves me the most is the fact that Acting is a way to explore life and human emotion; it breeds empathy and love in all of us. It’s the experience of sharing, of journeying somewhere, and doing it without ego or self-doubt. I have been at First Step since 2012, and still, after each class I feel incredibly inspired and full of love, empathy and strength. My goal for my students is to provide the safe environment that allows them to experience the same. I want them to be confident in being vulnerable, to develop a deep appreciation for themselves and others and to celebrate every step of the way!
