Interview with Alejandro Akara
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have always had a passion for acting and once I started making videos for my YouTube channel I realized that I was not half bad at acting. So I chose this path and did everything in my power to be the best that I can be.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Acting is a tough job, learning lines, knowing exactly what emotion to bring out when so in order to keep your head straight, be sure to calm yourself before entering a scene. Know what you want and can do and let that take control and you will be fine.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My friends have been a huge influence on me when it came to my career and other fields that I work in. They have always been my best buddies to help me not get demotivated so I am really grateful to them.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I try to give back as much as I can to the people. For that I do charity work and am associated with various organizations that help the less fortunate.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams” – Oprah Winfrey
This quote is by the most amazing woman, Oprah, where she tells us to just live our lives and follow our dreams and that is what I am doing with mine. I struggle but work towards my dreams and I am reaping the fruits of it.
