If I could have any job in the world what would it be?
I used to ponder on this question a concerning amount when I was a little girl. Out of all of the jobs in the world it was so hard for me to settle on one. My answers would range from a gymnast, to a singer, to a ballerina, all of which seemed to be phases. However one thing that always stuck with me even up until this day was acting.
I was first thrown into the drama world at 6 years old, after complaints from teachers that I was too quiet & didn’t talk very much. It was my first encounter with acting & I can honestly say that it’s changed my life & helped me mould into the person that I am today.
To me acting is more than just reciting a bunch of lines & selecting the appropriate emotion to convey. It’s about leaving the comfort of your own body & becoming someone else both physically & mentally.
Whenever I used to perform on stage I honestly wasn’t myself, I wasn’t the reserved, socially awkward Adina, I was whoever the script told me to be in that current moment. That’s the beauty of it, regardless of the struggles or hardships you are facing, you can escape for a while & literally transform into another being.
So yeah, I guess if I could have any job it would be that of an actor… an author would be pretty cool too 🙂
