We Dream, We Rise
I am honored to have been a part of Girl Rising/Bollyshake's "We Dream, We Rise" campaign several months ago, which was aimed to inspire and mobilize women of all ages around the world to pursue their passions. Below is my statement for the campaign:
"I feel incredibly blessed and fortunate to have been given the personal freedom and support of my loved ones, local community and society to actively pursue my dreams of being an artist. Both dancing and acting have been my dreams since I was a little girl. I am forever grateful to my parents who have always supported, encouraged and inspired me to follow my passions and be who I want to be.
My ultimate dream is to be able to be a part of something bigger than myself--and through the arts be able to help bring awareness, healing, love and light into my community and this world. My wish is that every girl and boy in this world has the same access and right to education as well as whatever else they dream and are passionate about, so that they too can do whatever and be whoever they want to be. I strongly believe that we can all only be happy when every single person in our community and world is happy, and that can only happen when there is a true sense of equality and freedom for every living being."
