An educator. A writer.
These are the current labels that I gravitate to these days. But, believe it or not I was somebody else- many years ago.
I was an actor.
Why did that change?
I didn't believe I could survive as a "starving" artist.
Practicality and real life soured the dream.
I also lacked that inner cheerleader.
Oh, I had others cheering me on, but I needed to see it in myself.
That is why as an educator I see it necessary to have my students see themselves as the wonderful creations they are, apart from what I say.
And as a writer I see it essential that my readers walk away with a better understanding of who they are in the characters I create.
And this is not a sob story.
There is change happening!
Who Am I, Really?
A woman, rebuilding.
