"Stop waiting for someone else to give you opportunities." - Shamikah Martinez

After college Shamikah (@smart_inez) worked as a video producer but through improv got the performance bug and hasn't looked back. After creating viral videos with her YouTube comedy group Candy Slice Shamikah teamed up with friend of the show Molly Austin to create the comedy duo, Emotistyle.

Shamikah's continued to expand her creative palette and has written her own one act play which she's debuting this month at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City and is co-creating a short film with her boyfriend and business partner, Adam Donald (MAD Pictures).

You'll hear Shamikah discuss her path of creative exploration, the power of joint ventures, and that it's less about whether someone will reject you than about how you react when they do:
