Growing up in Alabama I had a childhood that was full of struggles. Those struggles INSPIRED me to move to New York when I was 18 years old. When I lived in NYC I grew as an artist and as a person it was amazing and it was cold! One day there was 3 feet of snow on the ground and I decided I could not struggle with this cold weather anymore and was INSPIRED to move to LA. While in LA I was going out on tons of acting auditions and booking here and there but did not have a steady acting job which meant I had to wait tables for many years. I decided I was ready to throw myself into another creative profession because I was struggling with the feeling that I had more to offer and was INSPIRED to pick up a camera.
Today I am thankful for my struggles. Without them each and everyone of them I would not be doing what I love today. Some of these struggles I handled with dignity and pride and many of them I handled with tears and a complete victim identity. As my life goes on I choose to see the struggles that are in front of me as signs and signals of what I should learn and where I should go. I hope you will remind me and I promise I will remind you.
