"I joined SMS because I love theatre. I take Theatre as a subject in school, but I also think that theatre is so much more than just about what you study, and it's about meeting new people, it's and getting to know about people and their experiences, which can therefore add to your craft. And also, it's about sharing stories too, beyond the classroom.
What I love about performing is the fact that I feel like I'm part of a bigger story, that I can share stories of other people, and it's also really nice to feel that you can connect with someone on a much deeper level. You can put yourself in their shoes and extend that to the rest of the world, and hopefully other people will understand and empathise as well.
What I think of SMS, this monologue slam? It's an amazing initiative, and it's pioneering other events that I think will pop up soon. It's such a great thing for Singapore, especially because our drama and thatre space or talent is kind of low-key, so I really think this will really help to shine more light on the art of theatre, and also encourage more people to get into it.
I think the biggest challenge for me would be confidence in my acting. Even though I really like this, I'm still very unsure of myself, and I question myself alot, and I'm scared of failing, and I'm scared of being in front of an audience and not doing the best that I can, so I have to learn to get over that."
