I chose Act 3, Scene 3 lines 223-233.

I am playing the role of Emilia, wife of Iago, Desdemona’s best friend.

I learned that you need to have a whole lot of patience, to understand the impact of the story and the lines that will be recited. In order to get the right tone, I learned that it’s needed to be said multiple times so it can sound as natural as possible.

I understood how Emilia is feeling towards her husband, I could relate to her emotionally, which is why I chose one of her quotes. I can feel Emilia’s desire to please her husband, to make him happy so he can take notice on Emilia.
