Hello. I’m Davett Shelton
What inspires you everyday
My dream to be an Actor and to be successful inspires me. Seeing my Mother, a hard working ambitious black woman, work hard to achieve her dreams.
What is something you would change about people in the world
Hate. The hatred in this world is so sad.. if we all came together then the world would be a better place. We have to come together soon
What is your view on society today
Besides the hate, I love that our society is surrounded by social media. People have a lot more friends and connections now because of social media.. There’s a lot we can change in our society.. We need to be more accepting. We need to be more accepting even if things aren’t how they used to be.
What is something you’ve struggled with
I’ve struggled with the anxieties that people are judging me when they just look at me. Not just people but African Americans.. I feel like they think I’m a disgrace because of Who I am
What is a positive message you would give others
To keep pushing. Never give up. Everything that happens happens for a reason and every failure or criticism you get is to make you stronger for the future
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
I want to be a successful actor that opens doors for other African Americans who aspire to be an actor/actress as well
