interview, mtv, inspiring

Amanda (@amandaseales) is an all-around creative talent. Follow me now: She grew up as a child actor on Nickelodeon, became a spoken word poet in college, then a Sirius Radio host, then an MTV VJ, then a solo recording artist, and is now a comedian & writer performing around the country and on TV.

You’ll hear Amanda discuss the ups and downs of the creative journey, the importance of sticking to your strengths, and that to get to where you want to go you gotta get out of your own way.

“Keep people around you who believe in you more than you believe in you.” – Amanda Seales
