TREY GERRALD – Tooken, Orange Is The New Black, You’re The Worst, Next Caller http://trey-gerrald.com

I wanted to say thank you for your class. It was your “at least 1 audition a week” assignment that pushed me to audition for Steven Tylor O’Connor, which led me to the NBC pilot, which got me a manager and now this role on OITNB. I’m very thankful for your class and guidance. I’ve never taught before, so I don’t know if you experience enough sincere THANK YOUs…so here is a very deep, heartfelt, Thank You, Maggie. You mean the world to me. None of this was a possibility when I first walked in your class on that free trial day. Thank you.

SANTINO VALDEZ http://www.reverbnation.com/SantinoValdez

I really appreciate your thoughts, words, and constructive criticism. Thank you for never holding back and always pushing us, especially when it came to auditions, it allowed us to grow and evolve to even bigger and better levels. Although, I still have a lot of growth ahead of me, and even more to learn, what you offered help me created a tiny ripple that will soon expand tremendously. It was a humbling experience, loads of fun, and very educational. Even the embarrassing moments lol. Thanks again Maggie.
