WELCOME TO MY LIFE
AS AN ACTOR
Why would I do something like this?
Media is the mirror in which we see ourselves reflected, but unfortunately for some, it doesn't always reflect very well. A lifetime of being erased from history or portrayed negatively in the media can irreparably shape someone's identity. Growing up, I only ever saw the white guy getting the girl, saving the day, solving the crime,
so that's what I wanted to be...white.
