A new perspective

I took me some weeks to finally write this post because the experience has been both frustrating and embarrassing.

April had been quite a tough month because I was struggling with my work at school and I felt like i just wasn’t getting anything right. In my acting classes we’ve been working on classical french plays (by Racine and Corneille) and we’re having public performances towards the end of June.

Ryan Coogler is an inspiration!

When I saw ‘Black Panther’ in the cinema and I was blown away. I loved how gripping the story was and I especially appreciated the way in which the director, Ryan Coogler, has honoured different african cultures and the role of black woman in society.

Keeping the faith in 2018: new year, new goals!

I’ve decided that my motto for this year will be “Keep the faith”. That means that no matter what happens in 2018 I will keep believing that great things are ahead and always remain hopeful. As with every year I have chosen specific goals that will help to expand my potential, bring more peace into my life and help me to see the world from a different perspective.
Towards the end of 2017 I became very lazy and idle, and I think it might have been because I was overambitious and gave myself too many goals to achieve and too many things to focus on throughout that year.
