These ideas changed my mind as an actor and as a person! I value these principles deep in my heart, and I am so grateful that I got to know them at this early point of my life, because they will guide me through my future path in acting.
I am Irene Chen, an IB student in Shanghai YK Pao School. Some of my favorite things, besides Drama, are watercolor painting, music, cats, TED talks, and sweet food:)
Here you can see all my personal thoughts and notes related to my experience in theatre, including class notes, acting experiences, directing experiences, play reviews, and many more.
Hope my words can inspire your path in Drama, even if just a little bit. Please leave me messages if you have any thoughts about my journal or about Drama, I would love to discuss with you!
