    This is great! Really great! But how can someone like me from Jamaica with such zeal for acting in a christian entity actually possible for me? But I’ll still give it a try! Matter of fact I love sitcoms and I have started writing my own series not a comedy tho, it’s a slavery based theme and my friends and everyone I told it to said it sounded very good! No lie. I love acting! Also my problem is I don’t really have Internet connections so it’s kinda difficult for me hearing from you guys … But email can work.. hope this will be a stepping stone for my career… Thank you😌❤️ And fi
