I’ve always been known as an indecisive person, even with the simplest of things. Mexican or Thai? Cheddar or feta cheese? Malibu or Santa Monica? LA or Madrid? Reporter, producer, casting director, PR, TV host, or speech therapist? And the list goes on… But even when my anxiety kicks in and my mind goes racing when I have to make a tough decision, I know that no matter what I choose, I will learn something new whether good or bad. One of the toughest decisions I had was debating to come to LA, and after going back and forth for several months, I can easily say it is the best decision I have ever made (besides deciding to come to Syracuse, of course). I have learned so much about myself while in LA. I have met people I know will be my close friends for the rest of my life, and I have experienced opportunities I had never dreamed would come true. I may still not know where I want to be or what I want to do when I am older, but I do know that everything is figureoutable. I have learned that not knowing is okay. I have learned that everything will figure itself out in the end. I have learned that I don’t need to plan the future and to just let things happen. Coming to LA has been a life changing and unforgettable experience that I know will benefit my career and life no matter where it may lead me.
