Quote by Derek Luke
I was watching TV at age 9 or 10, and my mom said that I came from the front room and I told her that I want to act. And she said if you want to do this at 18, then you can. It was a very simple story, yet, I do not even remember the conversation that I had with my mother. Until she reminded me of the story many years later.
This quote is a reflection on the moment the speaker expressed their desire to pursue acting as a child and their mother's response to it. At a young age, the speaker expressed their passion for acting, and their mother set a condition that they could pursue acting when they turned 18. The simplicity of this conversation highlights the speaker's early determination and their mother's supportive yet grounded approach. It also underscores the significance of this moment in the speaker's life, as they had forgotten it until their mother brought it up again years later.
