"I'm in a program that's only one year long. It was supposed to give me what I needed to audition for other programs, but now I'm not sure I'll have enough skills to apply and audition for any other programs.

I have no friends. I wasn't in school for long enough to get to know anybody, and the longer the strike goes on, it makes me feel as if I've missed a window and won't have any other chances to meet people."
