Katerina: (in a March 2009 interview) I'm an extremely hands-on person. I hate to say it this way, but we're still in a time when there's not that many roles for African-American women. It's competitive. So I write a lot of scripts and try to put myself out there or I'm working on acting scripts that I've received. My manager tells me to relax. That's always gonna be a part of me, that hustler mentality. I don't want to ever rely on anyone for my career. I want to help a lot of people and I can't do that if my hands are out pleading for help.
