The call of ASAP was so strong because I love comedy, I love to laugh, it was a challenge outside of my norm, and I was trying to push myself. Once I was able to get on stage and say these things and learn these skills and take these feelings and experiences that can make people laugh, that changed everything for me. It changed how I dealt with my stress and frustration. Instead of internalizing my frustration, I was able to put it on paper, take control of my experience, turn a negative to a positive, and bring joy to others. How I live each day has changed completely because of it.
