My name is Alexandra Bayer. I’m 20 years old, currently attending university, and pursuing acting and modeling on the side.
What inspires you everyday
People who doubt me. Yes, I realize that it’s extremely hard to follow my dreams, I don’t need doubters to continually tell me so. It makes me want to prove them wrong.
What is something you would change about people in the world
There are a lot of things that initially come to mind, from mean girls to selfish and self-centred people to impatient bosses. Ultimately, though, I’d change the abusers. Not just strictly physical or emotional human abusers, but also animal abusers, killers, etc.
What is your view on the people in the world
I don’t believe people are inherently good or bad. We are all basically animals. It’s our upbringing that develops our minds and makes us who we are. Beyond that, we make our own choices. I don’t believe in fate. I believe that every decision we makes affects the rest of our lives, and so it’s up to us to make the right ones.
What is something you’ve struggled with in life
There are a few things that I won’t go into detail about, but primarily, I struggle with being happy. I want to follow my dreams, but my parents want me to follow a different path. Our world is money-driven, so I also struggle with finding ways to make money that won’t make me miserable long-term, because I need to support myself. It’s a matter of being happy and successful in the meantime, until I’m able to be a full-time actor, as long as that may take.
What is a positive message you would give others
My motto is “think, believe, manifest”. Choose your path, believe you can follow through, then manifest the future you want.
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the world
To change some people’s mindsets. It’s so easy to help the earth just by taking public transit instead of driving, or waiting to throw litter in the garbage instead of on the street, or calling a wildlife centre when you see an injured animal instead of leaving it to die. People always assume that their impact is too small to make a change, and try to leave it to someone else. But if everyone is just leaving things alone, who will make the difference?
