As an actress I want to soak up as many facets of life as possible in order to fully understand and portay an array of characters that leave the audience on tenterhooks every time. My journey into acting is one that was always rooted in me from my childhood. My mother soon realised that my talking with ornaments and the scenes created at the age of 10 were more than just a phase. And that she had not neglected me and was not to blame haha, but that I had a passion for creating scenarios with a variety of characters whom had accents, life journeys and backgrounds similar to friends and family. That passion has not dwindled since, and I wholly believe that everyone has a purpose in life a talent or skill that is etched into their destiny before they truly know what it is. Mine is acting. One of my strengths as a person is to be able to instinctively connect with other people, to put them at ease and this connection transcends into my acting and allows the audience to fully engage.
