Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ (AMTC) is a nonprofit ministry dedicated to making good bolder in film, fashion, music and theater. Through a unique faith-based educational program, AMTC teaches performers how to become positive role models in the entertainment industry, then introduces them to top media executives through its international talent convention. AMTC follows The Great Commission of Jesus Christ by preparing actors, models, singers, dancers and comedians to ‘go into the world’ of arts and entertainment with love and excellence—as reflections of Christ and His truth. AMTC’s vision is to see the Great Commission of Jesus Christ fulfilled in film, fashion, music and theater.
During the summer of 2011, I had the honor of performing in the AMTC Summer 2011 Convention in Orlando, FL, and I was indeed "spotted" by an agent. It was an amazing experience as I attended several seminars and workshops taught by top professionals of the industry and was a contestant in several showcases: cold read, on camera acting, commercial runway, dance, and voice in which I presented my talents in front of top agents of the industry. Leading up to the convention, I auditioned for AMTC in September of 2010 for hip hop dance and in order to be well-rounded in craft, I was encouraged to do other categories as well. I was given several classes and private lessons, along with online seminars and an online account loaded with information and tips about the industry and auditioning. I was also given several resources. Overall, I learned a lot about myself as an artist during this experience, and I discovered that there was more sides to myself than simply dance. I also confronted my fears, and grew as a person.
