A mentor in your back pocket

I’ve been listening to Maggie’s podcast for the past year and I have acquired an immense knowledge of this industry. Without actually knowing Maggie personally, she has helped me navigate college auditions, answer questions about auditions, and obtain information about what to expect when I graduate my BFA program. So thankful for Actors Aesthetic!!!
