Hearing the Lt. Governor of Illinois, Juliana Stratton, and the state’s top LGBTQ radio host, Jonny Gray, rave about my work today on Illinois’ Got Talent was unreal. I am so honored and humbled. I did not win the audience vote, but the response from the judge’s panel was exactly what I needed. I face a lot of doubt and insecurity about my work (as I think most artsits do), so getting their feedback meant the world to me. Thank you to all who supported me and the well wishes. I’m so thrilled I got to be a part of it!!!
