Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. And now Tik Tok? After changing her major seven times, Kaisha Huguley went from Government worker to fresh faced artist in NYC. When her co-workers asked her where she’d be working in New York, they expected her to say The United Nations – but Kaisha had other plans… to be an actor. Upon moving to NYC, Kaisha quickly understood that her collegiate experiences could help her identify as an artistic multi-hyphenate. As she discovered the word ‘multi-hyphenate’ described her best, she wanted to inspire other artists to go on their own artistic journey. So, she got on social media and started to get to work. Now Kaisha has built an incredible network of social media followers who engage with Kaisha and her creative endeavors on Tik Tok. In this episode, we break down the social media scaries and how to stop comparing ourselves to others on our screens – especially when it’s thrown directly into our faces. Learn the importance of establishing a dedicated audience that will follow you from social media and into the theatre.
