The Closet 2:08 a.m. It was pitch black outside, creepy and silent. There wasn’t a moment that I didn’t feel paranoid; my room was more of a cave than it was a safe place.

I’ve been performing in theatrical productions for as long as I can remember. I was in my first real show at four years old, and pretty much haven’t stopped since. Yet, also for as long as I can remember, I’ve had what I can now identify as anxiety when it comes to public speaking or being on a...
