Dreams. We all have those. I know it is scary to let them guide your way but think about it, what life is without going for the things you wish of doing and achieving. According to my mother, I knew since the age of two that I wanted to be a performer. I was singing, dancing and acting 24/7 in our living room with my sister. When we were living middle of nowhere, we took old sheets, wrap them around our waists and ran around the forest, pretending to be on a Jane Austin movie. When I was a teenager, I was even more sure that entertainment industry was for me. My mother wanted me to understand the pros and cons about the industry and asked me to wait till I was 18 years old, just to see if I was still sure about my life goals. Now that I am almost 24 years old, I am sure, more than ever, that I was right from the start. I want this as bad as I want to breathe.
So why now? Well, my life in Helsinki was lovely. I had really awesome job, wonderful group of friends, and my overall life was on point. Yes, I was grateful that my life didn't include that much stress. But still, I wasn't happy. I felt like my life was stuck in a pipe. I soon realized that my life wasn't going to change in Finland. The entertainment industry is so small in Finland, and the all the opportunities are for those whom know someone or they went to school. Yes, I had many chances to apply to theater school in Finland, but it didn't felt the right decision. So I did my preparations and I was able to save money on my bank account. I remember when I moved to Punavuori, I told myself that if I move out, I will move to London. And that's what happened. Now that I am here, I feel like I am closer to my dreams than ever. I have people around me whom believe in me, and push me forward. The fact that I am not the only one who believes in me, makes this journey even better.
Living here is amazing and I want to take my time when I am applying to school. I feel my journey in London is just in the beginning because anything is possible here. If you have dreams you want to achieve, what are you waiting for? Take a chance!
