Actress Christina Elizabeth Smith (Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Grey’s Anatomy) is also a dancer, animal activist, writer, and always a student of the world. Inspired by the teachings of Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung, she has dedicated her life to make positive changes through her passion of storytelling. She discusses why it’s our responsibility to be a dog’s best friend, how a plane ride resulted in Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and how she’s raising awareness about an issue in the rape investigation process that you’ve probably never heard of.
LESSONS FROM CHRISTINA:
Take charge of your own destiny.
If you think you're too small, just imagine sleeping with a mosquito in a closed room.
We're responsible for domesticated animals, and we need to take care of them.
