Caitanya longs for a career in Musical Theatre, and she is one step closer to her dream. I read her latest blog post about her audition to enroll into La Salle, the post filled with so much determination, that I feel inadequate at where I am now.

I remembered at the age of 16, I too went for an interview/audition at La Salle. That was when I was deciding whether to embark in the arts route or the academic ‘A’-level path. Then, I was not confident enough to accept the road less traveled.

In a way, I am quite lucky. I rediscovered my passions along the way, and they continue to grow over the years. But they never really rocketed: my passion is not strong enough for my dreams to take flight. I have a heavy load to carry with me, my responsibilities to my family.

Family man, or free-soul artist?
