    “Wow….your hair is tough.” Those words ran through me sharply. Those words spilled out of my cousin’s mouth as her hand unwelcomely touched my hair, neatly braided in two French braids touched with a finesse of London rain.

“A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.” Marilyn Monroe Being an Actor is a very weird, fantastic and frustrating, less of the later.
