  11. 13. I realized that, although my health was relatively stable, my HIV status was making it very difficult for me to work the long, unpredictable hours television production demanded. With the help of The Actors' Work Program I was able to take my previous skills and stay connected to the business working a full-time job in an entertainment industry union. I love my new job!&quot; - Client, The Actors' Work Program - ATEP &quot;Thanks to the scholarship I received from The Actors’ Work Program I’ve been able to devote my time and energy to my studies without the stress of having to work a survival job and carry a full time class schedule. The hard work has paid off. I will be graduating with a 3.8 average in June&quot;. - Client, The Actors’ Work Program
