Why Open Call?

I've been in Open Call four times and I can't even begin to explain how it has changed my life. The people that I've met have influenced me in ways I could never thank them enough for. I've only ever been able to find the feeling of absolute joy and unity between a group of people that have never met before through Open Call.



My mother inspires me. She has showed me how to carry myself well despite whatever it is that I may be going through. Her perseverance has showed me that it's possible to do what you love, even while feeling as if the world is against you.



“Things are only impossible until they are not.”

- Jean-Luc Picard



To see people smile and be part of the reason they are smiling.
