Being a part of the EG cast has definitely been enjoyable so far. Working in a safe and welcoming space is an amazing opportunity when you are a budding artist and that is what I feel EG provides. Each rehearsal so far has been different and challenging in its own way but never did I feel inadequate or like an outsider. I feel self-growth and change within myself already. The first rehearsal I attended, I shared a song with the cast in the beginning of the rehearsal, as each member followed sharing a different genre of art with the group. At first my nerves and fear got the better of me but through some guidance and warm smiles and support my performance became bigger and better.
