Actress/Producer Marsai Martin: Making A 'LITTLE' Difference In the World One Project At a Time
At the age of 14 Marsai Martin has achieved so many things that others just talk about---and she is showing no signs of slowing down. She's an award-winning actress and a history-making producer, but when we talked on Conversations LIVE the radio show it was clear she was at her core someone who loved what she does and is glad to share it with the world. And at the time she was only TEN.
Here's a part of that inspiring chat.
MARSAI DISCUSSING BLACK-ISH:
It's a great project. This is my very first TV show, so it's very cool to be on it. It's awesome working with them my TV family. They're actually like my second family.
MARSAI ON THE JOURNEY TO ACTING:
I used to love copying some of my favorites actresses like Jennifer Hudson and Angelina Jolie. I just looked at them and said I wanna like them. I did commercials and stuff for a very long time. Now I look and say wow, I actually came this far to be doing this right now.
MARSAI ON WINNING NAACP IMAGE AWARD:
It felt great. It was really awesome when they said Black-ish. I was really nervous, because it was a big experience for me. The hard work payed off.
MARSAI ON HER PARENTS' SUPPORT:
My parents are wonderful. They work on my Twitter, Facebook and all that stuff. They really help me with my social media, and they're the reason how I got here. I just love them.
MARSAI ON HER FANS:
I love my fans. They're awesome. It's great traveling all over the world to see all these wonderful people there supporting me.
MARSAI'S ADVICE FOR YOU:
If you have a dream you can conquer that dream. Believe in yourself. Keep doing what you're doing. Never give up on yourself.
