Fighting For Respect with AWMC Finalist Derek Lindesay

by:  Derek Lindesay at 05/10/2013

It is truly hard to find words that can express my gratitude to Alex Truppi and everyone else at the Huntington who has worked with me over the past five years. I would not have had the courage to go out on stage at the August Wilson Theatre and perform. When I'm up on stage I feel as if I'm fighting for my life and fighting for respect. Ever since I was a boy, I have never felt admired or respected by others. I have always been shy and I am even still afraid to talk to others in person today. But when I'm on stage I transform due to the fact that I am fighting for respect.

The one message I will take away from this whole experience is the importance of battling for everything you want in life. August Wilson described himself as a "struggling playwright" because he was always trying to make better plays. His characters and plays embody this idea of "struggling" as they fight and stand for what they believe in. I've realized that I must work harder in order to make my dreams a reality because for me, the sky really is the limit. When I'm on stage I try to perfom in a way that makes sure that everyone remembers my name. In life I must achieve enough success to guarantee they hear it again.

I was really lucky to meet other great young people from across the country last weekend. In a world with so much negativity, it's great to know that there are so many good people out there. I wish Antonio, Iliana, and the rest of my fellow Wilsonian Soldiers the best of luck in their future endeavors. They truly deserve it!
