"Sandra Dee Robinson has spent nearly all of her life in front of a camera:  as an actor (including Another World, Sunset Beach, Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds, Secret Life of an American Teenager and TV movies) and as a TV host and product spokesperson.
 
You might think then, talking directly into camera or speaking on a stage would seem like a natural thing for her to do.  Far from it!  “I was extremely shy but comfortable behind a character (acting). When people began to ask me to support a charity on stage, or sell a product, even be interviewed and they said, ‘Just be yourself!’  I was so lost.”
 
Sandra remembers shaking uncontrollably, forgetting her words, and nearly passing out from fear before having to speak! She spent years and thousands of dollars in classes and with coaches all the while continually pushing through the pain and sometimes humiliation of these presentations.
 
As it usually happens with persistence, there came a day of a breakthrough; exhaustion and a funny circumstance onstage of an infomercial shoot had Sandra unexpectedly enjoying being “herself” on a stage. She was relaxed, having fun, and getting her message across in her own unique way. Suddenly, moments of her training experiences came back to her and it all finally started to make sense!
