If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, I would easily pick a life in theatre. The stage has been my home since I was five, and I still love it to this day. I would love to be in Broadway shows portraying complex, exciting characters every night, with the bright lights beating on my skin, a heavy but extravagant costume hanging from my frame, and an obscene amount of make-up piled on to my face. The life of an actor is difficult and filled with rejection, but if I knew I had a good chance at making it big and having enough money to survive, I know I would take up that opportunity in a heartbeat. I would help to inspire kids to keep the arts alive in their hearts, and to make them feel that expressing yourself through theatre is a beautiful thing. I would try to take my talents beyond the Broadway stage and to children that are less fortunate that need the arts to liven their souls. I would be an advocate for keeping the arts alive in education, and would strive to make the world a happier and more beautiful place.
