Thanks to her amazing insight into the acting business, I was able to snag new leading commercial and theatrical representation! I knew exactly what questions to ask and which tricks to look out for.”

On my Speaking Events: “From the moment I spoke with Carmen, I knew she would be a great speaker for our students to hear from and feel connected to. Carmen has this genuine spirit and immediately connected with each of our students. She effortlessly build a connection with them and made everyone in the room feel comfortable and as one. So many girls left inspired by her experiences and most importantly by her kind-hearted and authentic spirit. We hope to have her here again!”

On my Speaking Events: “From the second Carmen walked in she held such a phenomenal presence in the room. The girls who often are weary of newcomers immediately felt comfortable with her presence. Carmen was able to relate to the girls and ensure that every story she told was relevant to them. The girls were able to see that while she came from a similar background to them in some ways, she was able to achieve such great success by following her dreams.”
