No, don’t be afraid! Taking that leap was the best decision I’ve ever made. Sure, it’s scary at first and the city seems so overwhelming. But going to NYU has been one of the best experiences of my entire life and I wouldn’t change it for the world. There’s almost nothing that beats going to school in NYC
I still let things people have said to me effect my self esteem and self image. As much as you try to block out those voices, sometimes you see things that remind you of that part of yourself. I do a pretty good job fighting them most of the time. But every so often there’s that little whisper “you’re not attractive enough. You’re not fun enough. You can’t be an actor. You’re boring.” And when you let those things inside, they cause trouble. Surround yourself with wonderful people, and those voices begin to sound further away. And then one day, when you’re not listening, you’ll realize that they’ve disappeared.
