Why am I an actress?

The first time I became aware of acting was when I was 4 at the schools Christmas (based on Spanish classical texts and traditional Spanish music and dances), dressed as a little shepherdess with an orange skirt. I remember the excitement and perhaps since then, I have been searching for it. I started early and I have intended to put it aside but I could not, theatre must have possessed me to the core. I would like to make Alain Badiou's words my own: "Theatre shows us where we are going and when its usefulness has been understood, one can not do without this compass".
