Many of you know that I have always had a love for, and natural bond and understanding with, children, while being most passionate about the arts, creativity and helping others.
When I started my journey as an actor, at 17 while getting my BFA degree in theatre, one of my biggest hopes for the future was to have my own children's charity foundation. Or partner with one, help raise awareness and, most important, be an active part of it, instead of merely donating money.
Don't get me wrong, donating is such an important and helpful element, but in my heart, I always wanted to be more "hands on" in helping the charity and present for the children.
So, when I was approached by Anna Lagermaine, the project founder of We Unite For Children, to be an Ambassador for the foundation, I was intrigued and thrilled.
It was the charity's purpose, in conjunction with helping children through movies, that truly spoke to me and made my decision to accept the role as ambassador an easy one.
