StorytellingIn high school I discovered the art of spoken word and how you can connect with anyone through the powers of words. It didn't matter if I had a similar background to the audience, I could get across to them.
Getting to Know PeopleEven though I can be painfully shy sometimes, I love getting to know people. Knowing what spurs them, what makes them happy, why they are the way they are - it all just makes me happy inside to hear someone else's perspective on things.
Learning New ThingsAt a young age I had to let go of something that was my sole identity - soccer. I had been concussed twice and the joy was no longer there. Making, what seemed like, the hardest decision in my life made me explore other options and things I might enjoy. Since then I have always tried to try something different and see what happens. That turned into me landing a role in two significant plays - Macduff in Macbeth and the lead role in a play my best friends wrote about the Rwandan Genocide.
