I meet a lot of people whose dream is to be an artista. I think that if you have a passion for performing or acting and making people happy, then go for it. But if you’re just in it for the glitz and glamour… I hate to be the one to break it to you, but that’s just a little part of being a celebrity, although it’s what a lot of people see. What happens behind the scenes is what makes it feel more like a real job—you always have to be prepared to do all sorts of things on the spot, you need to memorize 10 pages worth of lines in 20 minutes, and you have a lot of long working days.
The key to making it in an industry where everyone is trying to make it is to just have fun. Me and my friend Carla Humphries (follow her on Insta @carla_humphries and on YouTube at madzforyou), we try not to take ourselves and what we do too seriously. Because, honestly, if we think too much about what everyone thinks of us or if we feel conscious about every little thing we do, we would go CRAZY. Lol. And maybe we did, which is why you have the video below. Haha.
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
