Dorothy Diaries #7

Welcome to another edition of the Nikon Dorothy Diaries folks! The Top 6 had a rare day off rehearsal, so they took some time to show us what they get up to at the mansion. If you've ever wanted to see our Dorothys carve a pumpkin, now's your chance!

We also got word from three of our Dorothys on what they've learned about themselves over the course of the competition, read on to see what they had to say.

Jessie on personal growth...

'I think this is one of those experiences where you don't realize how much you've grown until it's over and you're out of that environment. I feel like I've become a stronger person and believe in myself more. I've never been confident in my acting and this experience has made me believe I can do it. Being true to myself is the biggest thing I've learned. Having people identify and connect with the story I'm telling is the most incredible feeling.'

AJ on facing challenges...

'I've learned more about the person I want to be on and off the stage than I ever thought possible. This kind of experience motivates you to sometimes take the hard way; because you learn the most from it and it's the most rewarding. Sometimes the pressure is nearly unbearable. But there was a moment I realized during this process where I realized why it's all worth it. Because I love to perform. My very favourite quote is 'It's not the absence of fear that defines courage, but the knowledge that something else is more important.' I love a challenge, and I am living the biggest challenge I could ever imagine. I wouldn't want it any other way.'

Danielle on how much she's learned...

'I have learned so much in this competition! I've learned how to be strong and confident, how to be a sponge and when to sit back and listen to all of the information being thrown at me. Everything here is fantastic. I have tried to take everything and remember it for the future because I'll never get to do this again. I've learned so much about myself as person and as a performer. I always wanted to do something great with my life and now I know that I have to.'
