One of the toughest questions to answer when you are so multi-talented/multi-skilled is pretty much "What do you do, Alex?" Hahahah. I can't wrap it up in one word. Do I NARROW it down or list my entire catalogue of career achievements at the risk of sounding like an arrogant twitter bio? Lol. I usually scratch my head after a wry smile. Where do I start from?
Do you even know what I do....How I earn a living? I'm not this later day blogger who harasses you with broadcasts and forces you to read her NAKED thoughts for no reason. I write screenplays, content for TV, Poetry, songs and I just proved I could even author my own book....but I'm more....
I don't saturate MOVIE posters, feature in just any movie for the fame or audition in every production....That's true....I've got artistic integrity. I have a direction.... But I'm still a Television Actress and more....
Yes, I've got Podcasts, I host my own Radio show, I record voice over and PSA's for commercials, would love to do animation and I sing like CRAZY in the shower....but I'm more....
I may love the camera more than I care to agree, Hosting TV Shows, Video Blogs and Webinars....I've even found a SLEEK way to host live video online meetings. Yes darling, I'm even more.
I really do like Mentoring, Public speaking. Hosting recitals, Engaging in Talk Therapy and Acting as Mistress of Ceremony. Yup, I'm not afraid to talk in front of a large AUDIENCE. I hold my own, very well as a Compere. Still, I'm more.
People want you to be all over the media jumping from place to place...but why do I need to do that when I'm constantly in your FACE. I recently realised how lucky I am to be able to frolick with the different mediums of Art and #Experience complete creative FREEDOM that many a true artistes, are afraid to embark. But don't be deceived, I am not the least bit CONFUSED about who I am or where my career is going. The Artistic mediums might be different from time to time....Movies, Podcast, Television, Radio, Writing, Hosting but it all comes down to basic EXPRESSION . I'm simply a Creative Artist who is an adherent of #expressionism. And yes, I hate to box myself in. This is more me, more real. It is who I am...who I've always been....fluid in my art and deriving fulfilment from chasing my PURPOSE.
And...I found the perfect word to describe exactly what I do. I'm an #EXPRESSIONIST; An Artist whose creative work enters a PRESENCE that shows sensitivity & Imagination. The beautiful part of it all is that I can be completely #naked, because #EXPRESSION is the #TRUTH. In this truth, I represent myself & nobody else.
So when next someone asks you about ALEX OKOROJI, don't tell them she's this and she's that....Don't tell them she's the daughter of one man. Just tell them I Represent Expression.
....Tell them, she's THE EXPRESSIONIST!!!
