Caitlin O’Connor: Interview

\\

The first words that come to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

I think of the women in my family who inspire me toward my strengths and passions every day.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a ball of energy and light having a human experience

Why do you do what you do?

Because I love to be in front of the camera and be part of the action!

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I came back to LA after high school and started college at UCLA. I was asked to model for UCLA’s catalog and took my modeling and acting from then on as a serious goal.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

I was very shy as a child and as a teen. It took many auditions, lots of practice and a lot of rejection to bring me out of my shell as a host and as an actress...

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I went through a relationship several years ago which was wrought with physical and emotional abuse. I was finally able to break away from this relationship after a very long time. Since October is domestic violence awareness month, I have come out to talk about this in my personal and professional life. My goal is to bring awareness to the fact that abuse can happen to anyone and many women and even men are plagued by abusive relationships and domestic violence.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I make mistakes all the time, almost every day, as most people do. The trick is to get up more times than you fall and to have perserverence.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

My upcoming project is a feature on The Chive for their Who’s That Girl campaign.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

My advice is to treat others how you would want to be treated and be respectful of people even when you are not receiving respect.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
