“Dear 20-year-old me, 

There you are making your mark in this new world as an actor… 

Let me be honest, you are going to face some brutal rejections. Shy and unconventional, you will try your hardest to fit in but fail.. spectacularly! People’s criticism and doubts will be hard it’ll make you question your dreams. You will fail more than you will succeed.

But spoiler alert, it’s all going to be worth it.. because one day slowly but surely, you’ll realise being yourself can be your greatest strengths. So, stumble a little but don’t stop. Keep pushing the boundaries and don’t ley the world’s expectations turn into your inhibitions. 

“Always be true, always be you!” 


PS. Learn how to dance, it’ll help you in the long run. 

Love, An older, wiser and better looking you.”
