Who I am? If I had to describe myself in a few words I would say; Restless, dreamy and a fan of ice cream.
But let’s expand a little more …
My name is Camila, I am 22 years old and I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. For some time I moved to California, United States, to fulfill my dreams. One of them was living in my favorite city, Los Angeles.
Since I can remember, being an actress is my great dream, but I must admit that it was not easy to stand up in front of society and convince them that this was my greatest talent.
When you are young at school they ask you the following question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” This question, so recurring, in my opinion is poorly formulated, what do I want to be when I grow up? The same as I am today, I hope. A curious and dreamy person. If I am not traveling, you will find me reading, cooking or doing what I enjoy the most, acting.
But, going back to the previous topic, what they want to ask you at school is “What do you want to do professionally when you grow up?”
“Actress, I want to be an actress.” “But Camila, you are already a big person … acting is not an answer and you don’t know what university degree to study” All my life listening to the same speech, that acting had to be a plan B in my life, that plan A was to go to University.
So much so, that in 2015 I decided to sign up for what I believed to be the career that best suited my tastes, architecture. To be honest, I did not last more than two months, I was sure that my path was not there.
Thanks to my mom, who understood my vocation, in 2017 I traveled to Los Angeles to study Acting for film and theater at the New York Film Academy.
My life was a before and after of NYFA, not only because I learned a lot and fell in love with the city, but because I was surrounded by people who were there with the same objective as me, to act.
After studying and living a dream, I returned to Argentina. That’s when I realized that I had been so immersed in my routine that I didn’t realize how much time I was wasting, and how many dreams I had to achieve.
But as the saying goes, “In the worst crises, there are the best opportunities” and so it was.
In the midst of the confusion of feelings, on the one hand, happiness for having discovered my true dream, but on the other hand frustration at feeling them so far away, Tomás, who is my boyfriend today, recommended me the book “The Secret”.
In that book I discovered a world where everything is possible and where your life depends only on you, you are the creator of your reality.
This is how an incredible spiritual journey began, where I understood how the human mind works and thus, be able to use it to my advantage. Little by little, working mentally and physically, I managed to fulfill some of my dreams, small goals that I had set for myself.
That is why I started this blog, because I think that sharing my story and my experiences with you, can inspire you to believe in yourself and realize that you do not need anyone else to fulfill all your goals and be happy.
I invite you to join me on this beautiful path. Let’s go for our dreams!
