I’m Sarah, and I’m a 22-year old Melbournian. My dreams involve the following: become a registered clinical Psychologist, become an established actress and get to see some location shooting of my favourite television crime drama, Castle (and while I’m there hopefully meet Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion, Jon Huertas and the rest of the cast and crew). Not just because I’m a fan, because I don’t like those little boxes you get shoved into – I’m more than that. I understand the decisions they make, the dilemmas they face, the incredible amount of sheer passion and energy that shows through their work.
I’m a little strange, a little too perfectionist, a little too analytical. But it’s my thoughts and views and dreams that shape who I am, and the impact I have on others – sometimes without realising. People tell me I’m wonderful, inspirational and committed but it took me many a year to realise that I really am. But I wouldn’t be who I am without the things I’ve experienced, the challenges I’ve faced and my sheer determination to never give up.
I strive for purpose, for justice and for peace. Much like Stana, and much like Beckett. I don’t let fear guide me, I control my fear and make it into something magical. And my dreams will become reality, because I had an epiphany not too long ago. I know where I stand, and I know where I want to go.
And I’ll get there. One script, one film, one part, one piece at a time.
I may be the most remarkable, challenging, maddening, frustrating person you’ve ever met.
But I’m also going to change my life, and change the world.
