Why I care

I love what I do. Every day I bring stories to life and give voice to great characters. I play Bonnie Bennett, in the series, “The Vampire Diaries.” It’s a dream job.
Of course, the roles that I play aren’t real – they are the product of great writing and imagination. But there are real stories in the world that I know are important, and that I want to help tell. Stories that nobody is talking about. Stories that need to be told.
No story is more important to me than the story of refugees.

Imagine If...

this was your house.

you slept in this bed everyday with a plywood mattress.

this is all you owned after fleeing your home.

This is the life of a refugee.
