Today, I attended ABC's and SAMMA's (South Asians in Media, Marketing and Entertainment) diversity workshop in NYC. ABC selected 12 actors to prepare them to audition for series regular roles, and I was fortunate to be one of them.

I had a fantastic time meeting with the wonderful and generous casting executives at ABC and watching my fellow South Asians perform. The NYC community constantly surprises and delights me: there is no shortage of talent, and everyone is so welcoming. It wasn't until the end of the session that we were told the work we did today was essentially our audition for their annual showcase! Super excited to have taken this step.
