For instance, preparing for a career in the music industry, is a bit different than preparing to be an actor.
Andrea starred as Hazel Aden in “Degrassi the Next Generation” and she also wrote a very popular YouTube series entitled: “Black Actress”. In the series she shows acting from the stand point of an actress. Her series shows that black actresses are varied in their life experiences, just as everyone else and shouldn’t be pigeonholed in the roles offered to them. She does this in a subtle and comedic way. She also gives an inside look into the industry and the “hurry up and wait” process that goes along with it. If you’re interested in becoming a writer, you’ll enjoy her interview as well.
