What is the greatest challenge of being a voice actress working in the industry?
Like any profession, you have to keep your skills sharp, practice all the time, keep your auditions at their highest level, and of course, never give up! Voiceover is a special and unique way to make a living, so it is very competitive, as it should be. The VO community is full of wonderful people who are incredibly talented. Being around them makes me work hard and strive to be the best I can be.
Finally, I ask the same question of all my guests….what advice would you give children today?
Well, that is a big question! I suppose the best way I can answer this is like this— If I could go back to myself when I was 5 or 6, I would whisper something like this into my ear:
Don’t be afraid of people and places that are different than that of what you know now. Ask lots of questions even if they feel uncomfortable. Go ask grandma for a map, and learn the names of not only other states in your country, America, learn the names of the other countries all over the world. Because someday you will understand we are all connected. Learn their geography, and the history of these places. Do lots of chores and jobs for people, so you can earn and save your pennies to go out into the world to experience everything and everyone you have learned about. If you say you are going to do something, do it. Always be on time. Make goals, and write down all your ideas and dreams. Believe in yourself. Don’t be afraid of things that are different, embrace them. Learn patience, kindness, compassion, and love; these traits are the currency people all over the world understand the most. Lastly, never give up!
Those are some of my thoughts I would pass along to children today. It’s such different world today then from when I was a kid, but I think these things are still really important and relevant. Great question, and I am really thankful to have a chance to answer it. Thank you!!
Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your blog. I am so honored and grateful for your generosity and all you do for kids. I am excited to share these characters and their stories with children all over the world. See you on our next adventure and best of luck to you in your many endeavors!
I would like to thank Amber for joining me today. I learned so much about her and her mission to help children. I found her inspiring and hope that you did as well! I also hope that you will venture out into The World of Liberty and meet Liberty Lane and her cohorts. I’m sure your child will be just as delighted as this big kid was tagging along on her adventures. I thoroughly enjoyed the aspect of learning more about America and other countries. This app not only offers a variety of story modes such as Read to Me, Read Myself, and Auto Play, but also offers comprehension questions and puzzles to entertain the little ones–all at a family-friendly price. And the character voices are outstanding. They alone are sure to keep a child invested in the story. Remember, learning is at its best when it is fun for children!
Until next time—happy adventuring!
The apps are available for android and Apple and can also be found on World of Liberty, Google Play, the App Store, and Amazon. To learn more about Amber, please visit her on her website.
