We had the good fortune of connecting with whisper washington and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi whisper, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I believe risk is very important in life, especially if you have big dreams.Risk are sometimes the only thing that can push your life forward. Risk has played a very big part of my career every opportunity i have ever had came from taking a big risk. I moved from Maryland to California to pursue my dreams. That was a big risk but so many opportunities and doors have opened up for me in California.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am an actress,writer and comedian i have been living in Los Angeles for 6 years. I am most proud of my comedy career, having the ability to make people laugh is something i am very proud of. Most of my comedy is about my crazy family and crazy dating life.I have gotten where i am today by being persistent and not being afraid to ask for help. Navigating any career is difficult so it is important to ask for help.It has not been easy i have made mistakes and received a lot of no’s, but there is nothing else i would be happy doing.When i have challenges i think about how far i have come and how i am closer to my dreams than i was a year ago, cant give up now.The biggest lesson i have learned is to go with my gut. A lot of times my first instinct is correct, trusting yourself is very important.I want the world to know that i am hardworking,goofball who just wants to make everyone laugh.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I would take them to world on wheels that place has a real LA vibe,where they can real get a feel of LA people.For food i would take them to Birrieria San Marcos for tacos. I would also take them to GS Lounge to dance and again get a real LA vibe.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
