Gina Kennedy is a radio host, voice actor and rockstar and she is still in her 20s. In this episode, Gina and I talk about how anything is possible when it comes to your career — no matter how big your dreams are, or how small your hometown is.

Long episode description:

Gina Kennedy is a prime example of how even if you come from a small town, if you’ve got big dreams the sky is the limit! Gina is originally from Abercrombie, Nova Scotia. A town so small that when I tried to look up the current population, I could only find one website that said the town was not included in Statistics Canada’s census and therefore the population is unknown. Yup, that’s a small town.

But that small town didn’t have much bearing on Gina’s ambitions. She wanted to work in the music industry and nothing was going to stop her. So she moved to the biggest city in the province — Halifax. Still, that wasn’t big enough and so her next move was to Toronto where she currently lives.

What I love about Gina is that once she sets her mind on something, she goes for it full force. She wanted to be radio host. I’m sure many of us have fantasized about having a sweet gig like that. But instead of just dreaming about it, she went back to school, got an internship, and never gave up until she finally become a radio host for Sirius XM’s The Verge.

Next, she wanted to become a voice actor. She’s got an incredibly dynamic voice, but it’s a very competitive field. Again, she figured out how to get her foot in the door, got herself an agent and now voices commercials.

If that wasn’t enough, she wanted to see if she could pursue her love of music. I was honestly surprised when she told me she was a classically trained pianist and opera singer, but it makes sense. She’s incredibly talented, and can add bassist for Altered by Mom as her third job.

I know not everyone can do a million things like this, but it just goes to show that if you want something, do it. You may fail, but you may surprise yourself and succeed. Don’t let anyone tell you “you can’t” because they have no idea what you’re capable of. Heck, you might not even know what you’re capable of. So, in my worst Nova Scotia accent: “Just giv’r!”
