I was raised to volunteer: nursing homes, clinics, church nurseries, school, everywhere that could use help. It's such an intrinsic part of me, to use my life to help improve the quality of others.
All of the awards, applause, Twitter followers, shoes, it will all go away eventually. But if I can leave the world slightly more hopeful, inspired, and more healed than when I arrived, I did my job.
I remember going to acting class, so certain that no one's ever going to know my name.
I want in 40 years to still be acting and to more than anything have longevity and not just be this huge flash in the pan and then disappear.
