I joined the Singapore Monologue Slam because it's the first ever competition ever, and I just want to grow myself as an actor.
What I love about performing is that I'm able to put myself in other people's shoes. It increases my empathy towards people, actually, when I do characters and stuff like that.
What do I think of SMS? I think that it is a really good initiative to start off somewhere. It gives a platform for actors or people who just want to showcase something.
I think my challenge of the monologue competition is that definitely there's going to be a lot of great people out there. And I guess you just have to put your best foot forward but after all, it's really just about having fun and you know, trying it out, so why not!
My advice for other people out there who are aspiring to be actors or currently acting is, continue doing what you love, and don't ever stop just because the theatre industry is so small. You can be the one who makes the theatre industry big in Singapore.
