Move Towards A Career in 2019

Did you finish 2018 with your hopes high after auditioning for acting schools across Australia only to begin 2019 confused, frustrated and down hearted because you weren’t successful? Were you excited and looking forward to spending 2019 working towards your dream career and now are feeling hurt and unsure as to how to move forward but determined not to give up on what you know you can achieve?
