Eight years old, and I already knew what I wanted to do with my life. I wish to help make the world a better place with my love of theatre. As an actor and thespian, I know the challenges that wait, but I am mitigating that risk with a solid plan.
After achieving my bachelor’s degree; I plan on going to work for the Steppenwolf Theatre, in Chicago. I want to work there because their operation with the Chicago youth has inspired me to do the same: change lives. I will be able to enjoy my passion of theatre, as well as expand my overall knowledge of how to run a theatre company. Paying close attention to the business aspect as well as learning how to motivate others.
Upon gaining some experience, I will open a Christian theatre in Lakeland Florida. The playhouse’ mission will be to help the surrounding community grow as well as taking special interest in the youth. This theatre will give young adults and below something to look forward to after school, allow them to explore their artistic side, and provide support for them and their parents. The theatre will be Christian based with an emphasis on teaching morals and hard work.
With your help, I will be able to obtain my bachelors; putting me on the path to changing the world. I pray that I get the opportunity to work with children that I care so much about, and maybe help inspire them through theatre.
