I will not stand for sexism, homophobia, or racism in any film/tv projects I do. I want to be part of the change, not part of the problem. I’ll admit that I did not abide by this in my first film. My character maybe, but not the film as a whole. It was a learning experience and hate that I facilitated any of the things I mentioned above. I’m getting more acting opportunities but not all of them are good. I have to be able to say,”No” and stand by being a part of a positive change even if my desire to act is so strong.





George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).
