Those seeking a career as an actor, radio host, or television presenter, should look no further than the advice of Daniela Tablante. A creative director and CEO of her own firm, Daniela had to work hard to go through college, get her masters degree, and develop a career in the film industry. What's her top piece of advice for getting ahead in the Media? It's to be prepared to put in the work.
The media industry is kill or be killed. There are no two ways about it. If you want to be an actor, a producer, a singer, a journalist – or any other public-facing celebrity – you need to go up through the ranks the hard way.
Of course, every so often a child star comes along, or a teenager is plucked from the street to star in a Hollywood blockbuster... but these moments are few and far between. The reality of the situation is that it just doesn't work that way. Just like any other industry, Hollywood operates on who you know and how hard you work. On one hand, this is difficult for those that have looks but no education, on the other hand, it gives us all a bit more of an even playing field from which to begin.
Fortunately for Daniela Tablante, she has both beauty and brains, both of which are capable of furthering an already illustrious career.
First of all, Daniela advises that it is all in the education. Even the worst off of us can afford to borrow against our future. Admittedly, student loans in the USA are in crisis. However, when it is your only choice to get the education you need for future success, there isn't any choice but to get those qualifications. And that's exactly what a young Tablante did.
Daniela Tablante has come through the ranks from an initial degree in Mass Communications. Later, she would develop that into a masters with a focus on Hispanic Media and Media Business, from the Florida International University. After this, she worked as a freelance reporter, while studying in her free time to become an actress. From there, she started filming documentaries before she had even graduated, going on to produce several titles and starting her business from there.
When asked about advice to give to the younger generation, Tablante advises that they work hard. It's not all work and no play, either. Through her career, Tablante has managed to walk in Miami Swim Week, New York Fashion Week, and has come fourth in the Miss Europe 2020 competition.
Daniela has achieved so much in a short time and you can too. Taking her advice, working your way up through the ranks, and being in the right social circles, can all help to advance your career. The most important thing is that you keep pushing for more, being better than you were yesterday, and reaching for your dreams. The chances are, they are ready and waiting for you to claim them.
