REASONS FOR SELECTING OCCUPATION
Acting to me is not seen as just another possible career choice. I enjoy drama and the possibility of being paid to do something I love is something I aspire to do. As its not perceived as ‘work’ if i enjoy and want to do it. The acting industry is hard to get into and succeed with, being surrounded by the doubts of everyone around me only pushes me further and inspires me to try harder and prove them wrong. I also chose this occupation as i am serious about pursuing it in the future and by researching it i will develop a deeper insight into the acting industry and what to expect and what is needed to be a successful actor.
