"Okiki was a model member of the Toronto company of Disney's The Lion King - talented, committed and reliable. I would have no reservations about recommending her for any future world-class productions." ~J. Betts (Resident Director of Toronto's Production of The Lion King)
"Working with Okiki, I always know I will get maximum effort, quality creative, and a willingness to try anything to get what we need. Her results speak for themselves. There are several commercials she's appeared in that I would rank among the best I've ever done.... She just creates that kind of impression. Okiki is the kind of talent any producer would be proud to add to their team.".~J.Marshall (Oz Productions)
"Ms. Kendall took over the lead role with only 9 days of rehearsal left. She accepted the challenge, beginning rehearsals immediately in what was obviously not an ideal situation (traditionally rehearsal periods are upwards of three weeks). She immediately, impressed me and her colleagues with her commitment and focus and of course her talent. Taking everything in stride Ms. Kendall created a rich and thought provoking character winning critical praise and an ensemble award nomination for our company and the show."~T.Benskin (Black Theatre Workshop)
"My daughter, national level gymnast, has taken a number of Okiki’s private classes over duration of 3 months, with a specific stress on improving her artistic performance of individual routines through self-expression. We found Okiki’ to be consistently pleasant, approaching all suggestions with dedication and creativity, paying attention to details. Besides being a joy to work with, Okiki is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. She was very helpful in inspiring and motivating my daughter. I offer high recommendation for Okiki."~V.Hauer
"It was such a pleasure working with you. That shot of you hugging Sarah makes me smile so much. Can't wait to work with you again!" ~S.Cisterna (Film and Television Director)
