When I moved here, I was working at American Apparel and I had been putting off auditioning for The Groundlings. I was too nervous to do it. Then one day Ana Gasteyer came into the store. She used to be a Groundling and I had always looked up to her. I told her I was too scared to audition and she gave me a huge inspirational pep talk then told me to keep her updated. So for the past four years I've been telling her about my progress. She's been super supportive throughout the whole thing even though she doesn't need to be. Anyways, I passed Writing Lab and I'm in shock. The past six weeks have been stressful, anxiety inducing, and tiring, but ultimately it was the most fun I've ever had. I'm so grateful for all of this and even more grateful to know that this won't be my one and only time performing on that stage. Onward and upward!
