I learned the basics that are necessary to get my first job at the New School. Before I even graduated I had my first part-time radio gig. I couldn’t have been happier with my experience at New School. It took a lot of time for me to break out of my shy shell and between acting classes and New School, I was able to break out and reach a dream that I’ve had since I was 12. You are not owed ANYTHING. You need to work hard to get your dream job. I’ve witnessed so many people come into our building and not want to do anything. You may see celebrities in Hollywood hit the spotlight in what seems like overnight – read their bios. Hard work, persistence, dedication, molding your craft… follow the same path and you can only win.
