I'M NO GOOD - by Sharise Parviz

Today I was speaking to a mother whose teenage son has been in theatre since he was a child (and has had numerous leading roles onstage).  He is ready to head off to college and she asked him if he wanted to major in theatre and pursue acting as a career.  He said something to the tune of, "I don't think I have a chance of being an actor because everyone's so much better than me".
