The Downey Legend

04/23/2020: I currently attend the Theater of Arts, a 2-year acting conservatory; I graduate this December. As far as music goes, Ive been playing ever since I was little, [since] both sides of my family play have musicians. I play guitar, drums, and a little bit of piano. Ive been in several bands in Downey and have been doing stand-up comedy since November. I usually perform at the comedy store in Hollywood, but I recently lost my job, [and] now all my classes are now online. I had to file for unemployment and sign up for food stamps to survive. I was supposed to move out into a brand new apartment in Hollywood but, because I lost my job, I couldnt afford it anymore and had to give it up. I think people need to stay positive: read, watch, and listen to positive material! Be with family, or FaceTime them if you arent with them physically. Stay active, be informed, and stay home! At least thats whats helping me.
