Laura: I am not sure why I was drawn to the Performing Arts. It may have something to do with the fact that I was a bit of a loser (guess I still am!), and somehow I felt that performing on stage gave me a confidence that I didn't have in real life. Through that, I met many wonderful and inspiring people and grew to love the Arts, and I will always, until the end of my life, support the Performing Arts. They have shaped so much of my life.
