Sarita Smiley - When your Dreams Become a Reality
Dreaming big, and then make it Happen!
Sarita Smiley is an actress that is making her way into stardom. We caught up with her reading her lines for a movie. She will be playing a female President in a foreseeable future. Does she remind us of any woman we know of? Let her tell us about this and that...
Sarita came back from Atlanta and was exhausted from the long trip back. We asked her some questions and she did really good.
Hi Sarita, nice to meet you!
Hi Joseph! My pleasure! Thanks for the interview!
Let me start with a ice breaker question: where are you from Sarita?
I was born and raised in Queens, New York all my life; just recently moved to Long island, New York.
I just heard you were casted for a role as a President in the near future... what can you tell us about it?
Yes I was and I can promise you this much: it will grab your attention; keep you on the edge of your seat. It will make you think, cry or even laugh at times.
Wow, your are giving us so many good hints! Who was in the entertainment business in the family before you?
Even though I was adopted...
Oh, I didn't know Sarita!
Well, when I finally did meet my mother I found out at her funeral that she was a
Then is in your blood! Who did really influenced your life, regarding acting and what is about to come for you?
Well for once my Pastor, Dr. Aretha Wilson; she ministered a word about fulfilling your dreams and destiny... understanding that God can and will use some of us in the market places, industry, entertainment arenas and from that point on I know I could do it. I felt such encouragement and strengthen to follow hard after my passion.
As far as actress and actors I can say I get inspiration from Dr. Juanita Bynum because not only is she in ministry but she is an actress and is a living example on how to do what God is calling you to do as far as a minister of the gospel as well as follow after the passion and talent God has placed o the inside.
In addition to that I must say Meryl Streep and Leonardo DiCaprio they are great actress and actors with such passion as well as some others but just to name a few.
Have you ever played a lead role in a movie Sarita?
No, I have never played a lead role in a movie as of yet. I have a lot of background acting in
films and movies.
Do you think we will have a president woman by the year 2016? Just saying, even though I hate politics.
I am not sure. But I do believe indeed it is well possible of happening in the next few years or so.
You did some modeling gigs. Tell us about it, please.
I have done very light modeling; had many opportunities to do more but never really wanted to get into it. I love acting more than modeling. However I am open to it more now.
I heard you are an Ambassador in a Church of yours. Can you share your experiences?
The title came straight out of the Bible were it say's we are Ambassadors for Christ. I am not an
Ambassador out of a specific church, but I am an NYS Chaplin. (READ 2 CORINTHIANS 5)
Where do you see yourself in 5 years, 10 years, Sarita?
I see myself well established, both naturally and spiritually, doing what God has called me to do as an Ambassador for Him. Actress and business owner.
Have you ever traveled abroad?
I have traveled all over in the United States. I have yet to go overseas but this year and years
to come I plan to venture out abroad.
Do you believe in miracles?
I certainly believe in miracles. I have witnessed many with my own eyes. (real authentic ones)
What do you expect from your great grandchildren? I know already they will be seeing a great
grandma working in great movies to come..
Well, I am single presently. I don't have any children, but when and if I do, I pray to leave a
legacy for both my children and their children, and all those young men and women who see me. I want them to know they can be anything and everything they set their hearts to be. Never be afraid to dream big and ALWAYS KEEP GOD FIRST
Thanks so much Sarita!
YOU'RE WELCOME SIR!
