I live in South Africa, a country with...let's say "limited" economic success. I have an ambitious, maybe naive dream to act. No, this won't benefit many people and it isn't a wonderful organisation pushing for funding for real issues. I'm just an 18 year old praying every day for the chance to prove my worth as an actress in a country with an abysmal film industry. I dream of moving to Canada because of it's incredible film industry. Yes, it is an incredibly competitive industry but one that I'm certain that my determination and passion will thrive in. As a person being told to settle for a life behind a desk, I have even more drive to do what I love. I refuse to die without having achieving the promise that I made to myself as a very young child - I will be in the movie industry. Starting at the bottom of the "food chain", so to speak, doesn't bother me but never having the chance to prove myself does. I implore anyone who understands the difficulty of a seemingly unreachable dream to help me prove the world wrong. A little girl from Africa can be successful and I will prove it.
