Focusing her life on positivity and moving forward, Alexis Johnson has a motivating way of life.
Working as an actress living in the beautiful Santa Monica didn’t happen overnight for Alexis. It took time for her to find her passion and pursue her dreams. Coming from a small town in Illinois, she didn’t know much about big city life, but that didn’t stop her from heading to New Jersey to attend college.
As a college freshman, Alexis wanted to start getting involved in everything the school had to offer. So, she tried out for a play and she landed a role. From that moment forward, she knew she had a passion for acting and pursuing a career as an actress became the dream she began working toward. When she had a bit of spare time away from the books and extracurriculars of college, she would hop on a train into New York City where she worked different acting gigs to build up her experience. The second she graduated, she packed her bags and headed to Los Angeles where she could commit to living out her dream.
Since her move across the country six years ago, Alexis has experienced a few hardships but she knew it was all a part of the journey to get her where she needed to be. With the help of positive thinking and prayer, she overcame the challenges and landed a few acting roles. Recently she was the lead in a true faith-based film called The Last Descent. Acting in films based on true events is where Alexis feels most inspired. Being able to share these stories with viewers has a way of giving the movies and her role in them a true meaning.
In addition to sharing true stories on screen, Alexis wants to inspire others and share their stories on her blog, Walking by Faith, Living by Grace. She hopes to feature people and brands that have an inspirational message or story. It will be a way to help other people find their gifts, like she has found hers.
“That’s why I want to build a relationship with La Forma,” she said. “Because you inspire and motivate people and I want to share that with other people.”
With a hectic schedule of being on set and managing her blog, Alexis focuses on a balanced lifestyle to keep herself in check. Exercise - specifically running - is an activity Alexis tries to fit into her everyday schedule. Working out and leading a healthy lifestyle has helped her wake up happier and accomplish more of her daily goals.
Alexis starts every single day with a positive attitude, some silent moments in thoughtfulness and prayer, and a cup of coffee. She keeps the TV off and she sets her mind right.
With her upbeat attitude and incredible outlook on life, Alexis is able to wake up each day and work to better herself, her acting, her blog, and her health.
