Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello I’m Mykah and I love to create. Whether it be to act, to draw, or to paint. The arts drive me, it’s my scapegoat. Without art we would be living in a blank lifeless canvas. Nothing to see, dreams would be more like nightmares. I’m 20, and everyday I wake up still driven to become something more than what my life perceives to be.
What Inspires You Every day? : My father inspires me to become the best version of myself. He loved pretty much everything I did. We were basically the same person. He went to be with God when I was only 10. It was definitely a struggle growing up because I had to fill that void. Not only that but I didnt come from wealth, never lived in an actual house. Growing up it was hard for me to do school activities mainly because of transport. And my mom being a single parent, telling me no because of gas. The last thing my father knew was that I wanted to be something bigger. He would encourage me and tell me that I was going to be “somebody”. Those were the last words I remember. He gave me everything that he could, as I got older I knew he wanted to give me so much more. Remembering he would use spare change to try to give me treats. I dont think I would be as strong as I am today mentally. He wanted to be an actor just like me. Whenever I think of him I try to give 100% when it comes to my goals.
