What do you do in the world?
I act and create art. I am an actress who truly believes that art (creativity) can change the world. As performers we effect change by sharing stories and creating art that open up opinions, initiate conversation, or even just provide a fantasy place to escape.
What makes you feel most authentically alive?
I feel most authentically alive when I get to be a warrior for congenital heart disease. I work at a camp, Camp Del Corazon, that provides children with heart disease the opportunity to be a kid. Also, I’m creating a blog specifically designed for heart disease. We’ll discuss life challenges, reaching goals and just sharing life experiences about going through life with heart disease.
What message do you want to share in this world?
How do you Crown Yourself?
I crown myself by telling myself it’s okay to just have a lazy day. On a lazy day, you order take out watch something wonderfully terrible or read a great book by the pool. You’re not allowed to feel guilty because it’s a day to relax.
