"Suze Suzi Susy" is about the different spellings of my nickname and the various thoughts and emotions that each spelling evokes within me. Thanks to my talented sister, Maribel Danta, my initial ideas were transformed and elevated into a warm, humorous, playful monologue that apparently left a lasting impression because I was cast as part of Orly Wahba's "LifeVest Inside" movement for spreading kindness. Orly is an extraordinary teacher that wants to show her students how a simple act of kindness can affect someones life and make this world better. Her original commercial was shot last year and is called "Kindness Boomerang". I'm part of the additional new cast members that will be used to develop the next phase of the campaign/movement. The Life Vest is symbolic of the ability we have within us to provide a lifesaving gesture of kindness to one another.
Orly leads by example and set the tone for our day of shooting. I kept an eye on how she went around at various times during the shoot to interact with each cast member to let us know how much she appreciated our participation. I was cast as a Pediatric Nurse because Orly thought I look like I'd work well with kids. I know some really special nurses and some special kids... I ACCEPT!
