You’re Ben Platt!

You are a wunderkind in your field who attracts attention wherever you go. Known for humility and a tough work ethic, you have the tendency to be hard on yourself and give in to anxiety. But even more than your legendary talent, you are known by those who love you for your deep-running passions and your commitment to art and artists. You have a warm and loving relationship with your family members, and you credit Jewish community with helping to have formed your identity.
