I give my 100% commitment to everything I do, and do it to the best I know I can by taking advantage of my multi-tasking and time management skills.
after thousands of years of existence, theatre remains one of the most innovative and inclusive art forms in the history of the world. this is exactly the reason why I love the dramatic arts, and why I believe everyone else should too.
I believe that unity within a team is key in order to achieve the best in any production. Strong teamwork results in becoming proficient at dividing up tasks so that they can be completed by the most qualified members.
