Follow Your Dreams so Am I by Samantha Fort is a slim book, a memoir that is as inspirational as it is rollicking. In this book, the author uses her experience to communicate a message of hope, grit, and resilience to readers. She had always wanted one thing: a career in the entertainment industry in California. But wishes are not horses, and she experienced a lot of challenges and setbacks, frustrations and rejections, heartaches, and more. Readers will read about the roadblocks on the way, some created by the environment and inherent to the industry. This book exposes those challenges, providing an honest warning to readers who want to make it in the entertainment industry while serving as an action plan for the author in her own journey toward becoming an actress.

Samantha Fort shares tips and strategies on investing in one’s dream, the importance of staying positive and keeping the hope high, the power of connection and human kindness at all times, tips to deal with low self-esteem, and the experience of inadequacy. Samantha explains why one shouldn’t settle for less and the importance of giving it your all. In the opening pages, Samantha warns that: “I can tell you right now, I do know that I will make it in the industry… One thing I do is be optimistic despite what I see, and I believe that what I see is just temporary.” This book provides content that lifts the spirits of readers and inspires them to hold onto their dreams. The author writes from a place of authenticity and her honesty rubs off powerfully on the reader. The book contains lessons for dreamers and for people who are willing to invest in their dreams despite the odds. Follow Your Dreams so Am I is filled with personal experiences, eye-opening insights, and wisdom that can take readers a long way on the path to achieving their goals.
