Caera Beightol

Tell us your name and where are you from?

My name is Caera, and I’m from Florida, USA.

Where do you consider home?

There are a few places that are particularly special to me- places where I met people who became home for me: Florida, where I was born, California, where I studied, and the country of Trinidad where my family roots are.

What's your experience with surfing?

I tried surfing in California after watching the movie Point Break! It was tough and I barely kept up, but I understand the appeal.

What does a typical day look like for you? 

Depends on the day! Some days, I work at an office job, but my favourite days are the ones where I get to wake up, travel to a set location, and shoot content! It’s always very energising you create, and I get to meet very lovely people on the way.

What is your idea of happiness? 

Happiness for me would be having all the resources to be fulfilled and purposeful, in whatever ways bring the most joy. It shouldn’t matter how outwardly “successful” or impressive your life is, as long as you find contentment in doing what you were made to do.

What are your plans for the future?

Life seems to constantly surprise me, so it’s hard to say what I’ll be up to in the future. I imagine myself continuing to create and be closely involved with art in whatever ways I can, but also would love to continue my studies and eventually teach, perhaps.
