Actors Pulse Alumni Testimonial
"Hey Brother (Billy). You’re a beautiful man. You have taught me so much about not only acting but about life, and for that I appreciate you beyond words. “If you had 86,400 seconds in a day, wouldn’t you spend them all”? “We have 86,400 seconds a day, why wouldn’t you spend them all”? “Find a way to win”. You taught me to open my eyes around me, to make sure I make the most out of every second of a day and to always keep pushing. You truly are a great mentor as well as a true friend, although sometimes you whip, hammer, belt and absolutely cut the legs off us that we want to go home. It is never for the negative, it’s for the positive. It’s such a honour and pleasure to have you as part of my life. You’re a Mayweather in your profession! Thank you so very much for everything you have done for me. This phrase best sums up about what I am truly trying to say. “I appreciate you”. - Sam Alhaje
