- Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, education etc. ??
My name is Urszula Makowska. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I’m a fashion blogger, social media influencer, actress, and merchandiser based in New York City. I continue to act to present day, but I also pursued a career in the fashion industry. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree from LIM College and now I work as a merchandiser. I launched my fashion blog in 2012 and I have been mentioned on ELLE Poland for the best look of July, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, MTV and many other publications.
- At what point did you decided to become an actor ?
Being surrounded by art while growing up, really pushed me to want to become an actress. I was always attending dance classes or playing the piano or taking art classes. My parents really pushed me to be active and take part in activities. From being exposed to all of those activities, I grew a love for the arts. My turning point was drama class. That is when I realized how much I loved acting. I’ve always loved taking on different roles and conveying emotions.
- How can people find you online and get updates about it ?
You can find me on the following links:
- If you could choose, what three actors would you really want to work with?
I would choose, Lauren Conrad who definitely doesn’t do reality television anymore but was my fashion idol growing up. Meryl Streep definitely, because she is extremely talented and such a classic. Thirdly, I’d say Ashton Kutcher!
- Ideally, where would you like to see yourself five years from now?
Ideally, I see myself more out there in reality television and television shows. Only time will tell, but that is where I’d like to see myself in terms of filming. I will still continue to be a fashion blogger and influencer because I also have love for fashion.
- Motivation is important within the acting profession. What would you say is your motivator currently? How do you remain positive and focused within your role?
Motivation is important in any profession. I stay motivated by setting goals for myself in each of my professions. I work hard to achieve them, but once I do, my achievements become my motivators. It makes me push myself harder and further.
In any profession you always have to be positive. There will be hard times and there will be times you will not get the role. You cannot let yourself down because of that. There will be other opportunities. I definitely say I have a open mind and every critique I get, I use to work on it on myself.
- To be an established actor you need to be able to measure your success and build on this. How do you evaluate success within your role?
I believe we are all successful. Every role you book is a success and that only builds on reaching your goals and becoming successful. Every person you meet contributes to your success. Every decision makes a difference and affects your outcomes. Every action and every word is very important as well.
- Thinking back over your career to date, what has been your greatest accomplishment as an actress?
My greatest accomplishment was building confidence and being able to take critique. It was not always so easy to hear rejection at a young age, but it only helped me and made me stronger. Today, I am a confident woman and I am not afraid. I am fearless and ambitious. Also, in terms of roles, my role as myself on MTV’s show Catfish was definitely one of them.
- Talk me through some of your biggest achievements to date. Why were these memorable to you, and how did you achieve them?
I’ve come extremely far in my career. I’m not only an actress, but a fashion blogger, influencer, and merchandiser. I’m able to find the balance of all four and continuously follow my dreams. I think the biggest achievement is being able to follow your dreams and do what you love.
Doing what I love is the most memorable because this is what has made me who I am today and I’m happy. I am following my dreams and not giving up. I’m working harder and harder everyday.
- What type of acting role would interest you the most, and why?
I love reality television and television shows. I definitely say these interest me the most. I love reality television because I love being able to be free and have cameras capture my natural reactions and natural emotions. I also love roles on television shows because I love to take on different character roles.
