What do you do in the world?
My greatest passion in life is to have fun and make a living doing it. I’m an actress, film producer, writer, host, poet, public speaker, and a crowdfunding coach. Basically, I’m an entrepreneurial renaissance woman! If I’m not passionate about a project, then I can’t truly enjoy it. And, I want a life I enjoy!
What makes you feel most authentically alive?
I feel most authentically alive when I connect with people, when I am contributing something positive to someone else’s life and to mine. This could be working on a film project together or speaking on my All Shapes and Sizes Panel, connecting with others on their journey of self-love.
When I inspire someone else, when I actively make a difference in people’s lives – whether through my voice, my guidance, or my physical actions – this is what makes me feel most authentically alive.
What message do you want to share in the world?
Have fun! Love yourself fully and completely.
How do you Crown Yourself?
I crown myself with love, passion, and a reminder to be gentle with myself through all of the ups and downs that life presents me.
