1. Who: Camille Lesley-Ann Walker Occupation: Actress, Poet, Playwright, Vocalist...(to narrow things down, I'm an "artiste").

5. Why art? Art is a universal language, it's like miracles; and miracles happens everyday...from the very moment we lay our head to rest and to the minute we wake up to begin a new day. Art speaks to the senses in more ways than one and it is through art that the heart, mind and soul experience a true therapeutic healing. I chose art because it is my destined quest to be a voice to the voiceless and provide healing for the troubled at heart and mind.
6. How’s the city treating you? The city is my canvas, my research mechanism...it speaks to me and through the many voices and sights, experiences and encounters I am forced to the next level of accomplishing my destiny. It is through the city that I am able to relinquish the fear of not making it in this tedious and competitive world and gain the strength to pursue even more what is dearest to my heart.

8. What is your favourite “O” word? "OH"! sorry I have none.
9. The best? "The 'best' is just a step higher than what's better; and that's where I am going."
10. The worst? "The 'worst', well what we consider to be 'worst' are really what we can view as the portals to our greatest lessons...this is what provides us with the revelation as to how to manoeuvre our life’s task!"
