How to kickstart your acting career

Step 1: Be Asian.

Step 2: Move to La Paz.

That’s it, folks. In two simple steps you can get yourself on the path to fame.

And yet, publicists have asked me to audition twice – and given me the part both times.

After getting turned down for an aid and development position and subsequently filming my second TV commercial, it occurs to me that perhaps I am on the wrong career path. I have made a grand total of nothing ($0) fighting for justice; in contrast, I’ve earned about 1700 bolivianos (about USD250) doing advertising.

Step 3: Hollywood, baby! 😛
