If not an actress, what would you be?
I can’t imagine pursuing another career but if I had to choose something other than an actress, I would say that I’d be using my master’s degree and serving as a mental health therapist or counselor. I enjoy and value understanding how the human mind and behaviors work differently for individuals, and I find the functions of the rewards system in human behavior fascinating.
You are a supporter of Step up and Los Angeles Mission. how do you wish to help educate the society through these endeavours?
I began volunteering with Step Up because their mission statement resonated strongly with me. They work with girls in underserved communities to help them reach their potential by encouraging them to be confident and focus on their career. I am a strong believer that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and that poverty does not dictate your future. One can overcome and achieve goals with tenacity, dedication, and commitment, and while it can be challenging, it’s always possible. I hope to serve as a role model for successfully turning barriers into challenges and staying focused while setting myself on the path I chose for my life. I gave myself permission to accept my situation and to then focus on growing and moving forward. I have also volunteered with Los Angeles Mission for over seven years now. I always volunteer during holidays to serve warm meals to those in need because I know how much it can mean to someone to have that. Many of the people we serve meals to don’t get another proper meal for a long time afterwards. I love to see everyone’s smiles and to be able to help however I can. For me, it’s a way of giving back to the community. Being of service to others is my number one principle.
Message for your readers at Women Fitness.
I would say to remember that while on your journey, there will always be obstacles, so choose to use those experiences to change your cognitive thinking. Reframe obstacles as challenges. Doing so will help you build a positive outlook and drive your goals forward. Lastly, always believe in yourself because if you don’t, how do you expect other people to believe in you?
