Determined for me to experience the magic of reading, my Grandma applied her first Law of Knitting. Like a good ball of wool, she enlisted the help of Roald Dahl’s classic tale The Witches. Using her Laws of Knitting, My Grandma helped nurture my love of reading. You can’t expect to knit a scarf in one go. You’re going to be slow as your hands learn how to move and thread the wool. You’re going to have to backtrack if you drop a stitch.
The rollercoaster of ups and downs Nathan had experienced over his journey would be enough to deter anyone. We asked Nathan after hearing all the hurdles that had stopped him so far on his journey to becoming an actor: “What was the one thing that pushed you to not give up?”
Nathan was very candid and didn’t hesitate to respond. “For me, it was a gut feeling. It’s hard not seeing yourself represented on TV. I struggled growing up and not having anyone that was like me to look up to. Throughout all my experiences in the industry, I am always thinking of the young ones like me – the Deaf children that can now look up to me. To me, that’s more important than anything else. They need to be able to see themselves.”
