The Vagina Monologues premiered tonight. It was our opening night.
This is the first time I've ever done anything like this. I've danced on the stage, I've played an instrument on the stage. But never have I ever done any acting or speaking on the stage. Until now.
I mean, I've done public speaking things. I've done presentations. Perhaps stage acting isn't too far of a reach.
It was certainly easy to be part of a production of the Vagina Monologues because I believe in the mission of V-Day.
What was weird was that I didn't actually get nervous until we were just about to step on the stage. I knew that I had so many people who were in the audience for me. More than anything, I wanted to make them proud.

But it was amazing to see all my beautiful friends after the performance! Friends from school, friends from different work worlds, friends from bootcamp. I can't even begin to describe how blessed I felt. Truly blessed. Truly loved.
