Success Story: Grace

"Grace had amazing afternoon during Showcase callbacks. Her spirits about how far she's come with her skills was lifted to new heights after the feedback from each of the 14 agents we met with.

In addition, Grace was told by three of the agents that they already had jobs for her in December and January, one LA agent said she wanted to represent Grace, and we have a tentative meeting set up next week, another wants to meet as well, and three of the SF agents want further meetings (with one sending a contract this week).

Thanks to all of you for the role you've played in Grace's hoped-for career."
