This was my first gig. My first performance. The Exposure Showcase. My acting coach, in which Ive havent been training with in a while, told me about this and I gave it a try. It was downtown on a saturday (the auditions) and my mom and I had are headshots/resumes and monologue prepared and I was very nervous. It was my first performance shoot, I had the right to be nervous. I felt so professional walking in with my headshots and everything. When we got there we waited for like 10 min. So my mom and I practiced my monologue. Then the director of the whole showcase came put and called my name, she asked was I ready and its okay if Im not. I said I wasnt. I grew scared as if she was mad at me for saying I wasnt but she said that it was okay and come in the room whem Im ready. I went in the room 5 min. after. When I went in there there was a man and the woman that steped out to see me in seats. There was a wide stage with 3 sections of seats for the audience. I performed my monologue and apparently she was blown away and said I was definitely in. She said that the only thing I needed to work on was my volume. She told my mom, I made it. I was so proud. She was screaming once we got in the car. We were so excited. I performed that Monday and when I picked up the forms the judges (1 was about to be in a movie with the one and only Sean Penn) they all checked off excellent, except one that checked good which was under excellent. Excellent is like 5 out of 5 so I was pretty crazed about it. Cant wait to do it again this summer!

My first job. At the beginning I was so excited to walk out of that donut shop and own the whole street with my sign holding. Towards the middle, I found myself constantly looking at my watch to see if I was off work. Im 15 now… I dont like it all. Also I went to the grocery store to apply and they said they dont hire at 15. I cried. Jk. This was the job that got me through the 9th grade, that kept me with money in my pocket, that helped me get the clothes, shoes, and other misc. things I wanted. $13 dollars a day for 2 hours and I only work on the weekends,$26 a week. I was 14 when I got the job, who works at 14? Thats the thing. My parents were really proud, because thats maturity, responsibility, and dedication. Last christmas, I bought gifts for people. I didnt sign my name on anything that I didnt buy or help get. For my mom’s and brother’s bday, I got them gifts that I bought with my own money and gladly signed my name on. Not only is my family proud of me, but I’m proud of my self. Awesome isn’t it? Yea… I thought so!

 Last Week I spent helping the community. It was through my church, All Saints Catholic Church. It was called Mission Possible. Mission Possible is a voluntary  service from the youth for the community in the Dallas/Ft. Worth vicinity. In this “camp” we have a wide range of things we do. From painting to helping out with special needs children. This year was my first year doing Mission Possible. One of the ministers at my church told me about it, so I gave it a shot. At first, I thought it was going to be boring, but it was actually pretty awesome and fun. It’s a 4 day thing. On my first day, my group and I went to a church called Our Lady of Perpetual Help and painted a fence which we though was going to be wooden but turned out to be much more difficult not being wooden. It was like bars with spaces in between… The 1st day was the most difficult. On the second day, We helped out at the Plano Recreation Center with special needs kids. It was really eye opening to see that these kids were born with different kinds of disorders. One had sensory processing disorder, another with cerebral palsy, and one never said a word, but just made sounds. It showed me you think you have it bad, but others have it worst. I took pics of my partner. On the 3rd, we helped decorate a youth center for a vacation bible school. It was really phone. There was a pic included of the things we hung from the ceiling and the wall decors.. Last day, we worked at the Minnie’s Food Pantry in Plano and it was such a blessing to be there. I honestly, want to visit the pantry again and volunteer packaging food for the homeless. The whole team there was amazing, I loved it. That was my favorite day of working. Then later that day, everyone involved in Mission Possible got a treat to Hawaiian Falls, so cool. I met a lot of new friends. Overall, everything was a blast, and I totally enjoyed myself. So signing up next year!

 Having fun on a skateboard on the set of Diabla. Who knew it could be so fun?

Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself…

Today I cut off my moustache. I feel different… in a good way. You know life with a moustache can be kewl, but it also can be difficult. Most boys at school don’t even have a moustache I always had the most hair on my top lip. Its supposed to be a good thing and it is…. Im gonna stop storying now. I always wanted to cut my moustache off but not because I feel out of place. Thats not a good enough reason to cut it off for real. One day, I walked into class and my friend Chloe came up to me and said “Wow you have a moustache” and I said “aha yea… It’s been their ever since I met you” and she replied “can you cut it off please?” so I excused myself and cried in the bathroom… Im totally kidding. Then I thought about the time my agent told me that one of her talents (actors) didn’t get so many roles because he looked pretty old for his age and often didn’t look the part. And I didnt want that to happen to me… So today I cut my moustache off. How do I feel? Pretty good…. Pretty darn good.
