Guardians of the Galaxy actress Zoe Saldana is someone who stands firm in what she believes in and flows intuitively with what she enjoys doing. Her upbringing was not an easy one as her father died at age 9 in a car crash. Her first passion was ballet and she began to migrate into other forms of dance. Zoe began studying several forms of dance and allowed herself to immerse into her young passion. Eventually she quit ballet when she felt an inner urge and ambition for other things. Again, flowing with her gut feelings, she dove into theater and then began performing for Faces theater group which was aimed at sending positive messages for teenagers. Subsequently, her passion and talent became evident enough for a talent agency which landed her a role playing a ballet student. It’s fair to suggest her inner nudges guided her to many passions which in turn led her to more opportunities.
Staying true to herself and her interests has also allowed Zoe to reach her destiny. Her love of science fiction and space earned her a massive big role in Star Trek which opened the doors for Guardians of The Galaxy. In fact, Steven Spielberg taught her the Vulcan Salute five years earlier when he directed her in The Terminal. Her second major film was another space movie in James Cameron’s film Avatar. She has mentioned her love of sci-fi saying “I’m a sci-fi girl. If I can have anything in life, I’d want tons of great science-fiction movies and stories. It’s so progressive, beautiful, and imaginative.”
The actress has also boldly stated she would never get any plastic surgery done and is a proud supporter of FINCA International.
Zoe Saldana’s life journey along with these empowering quotes teach us an important message: pursuing passions will provide massive dividends and opportunities, which we must seize.
