  • "Going to this amazing festival is always beneficial for me and everyone else who has the opportunity to go."
  • "The energy was contagious and everyone just seemed so excited to be there."
  • "My favorite workshop was Writing What Moves Us with Dominique Morrisseau. I'm not much of a writer at all but her workshop defnitely opened my eyes."
  • "I've actually gotten to learn more about who I am as an actor. Being at this festival had me prove to myself how much I really want to succeed in this industry and that I'm willing to do what it takes."
