Its always a wonderful feeling each time I sit inside a location bus. It takes me back to around 13yrs ago when the career hustle started. Then once you see your name on the cast list after an audition you'll be so excited cos that guarantees you steady access into one of these buses for the next 2 weeks to one month. Even when I had just one scene to do I would join the bus daily to go watch the big stars act and learn the craft. Chai!! We hustled with joy. Today I thank God for his grace, for the journey, for lessons learnt and for his blessings and protection. And to everyone out there hustling to make it, you will make it in Jesus name, AMEN!
