Why I Love Juliet Doherty

December 8, 2012

Last year, I saw prima-in-the-making Juliet Doherty perform the role of Clara in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, right here in NYC.

Amidst all those gorgeous, seemingly-perfect, high kicking Rockettes, Juliet was the one who delivered the biggest “wow” factor for me. She’s such an exciting performer, in fact, that DS decided to feature her in our “You Should Know” column this past March. (Click here to read it.)

One year later, Juliet continues to thrive.

It’s not just her impeccable technique and fantastic onstage persona that’s keeping Juliet int he spotlight, though. She’s got crazy maturity and poise.

Check out this TED Talk Juliet gave recently about “being great.” It’s inspiring and, frankly, a bit crazy that these wise, eloquent words are coming from a teenager. (A good life lesson: Don’t underestimate anyone based on his or her age!)

So, ladies and gentlemen, from Juliet to all of you: You have permission to be great today.

Go make it a good one!
