Kerry Washington worked a number of jobs before she started acting

kerry Before becoming an actress, Kerry Washington studied for a degree in anthropology and sociology and was working several different jobs.

One of those jobs was teaching yoga.

“I lived in India right after college and got certified to teach. I was also a supply teacher for New York City public schools. I loved it,” she told Stylist magazine.

“I had to limit myself to teaching no more than three days in a row at the same school so I wouldn’t be seduced. Oh, and I was working in a restaurant. I had serious hustle going on.”

Kerry’s parents wanted her to be a lawyer and they had a huge influence on her.

“I’ve tried to embody those things in the best way I can. My dad is much more gregarious. He is one of the most generous spirits I’ve ever met and he truly is interested in the people and the world around him.”
