    Ok so, whoever is reading this, I’m gonna shoot you straight . I’m 13 years old , I’m going into the 8th grade (the best grade of middle school) , I’m a kind and smart person who has a dream of being a comedian one day (I fancy myself as the funny type) , and I live with my mother , my sister, and my mom’s boyfriend in a one bedroom apartment. Now I was reading a lot of those comments about everyone asking to be in this movie, and I was pretty bored by some of the replies. I do realize that a normal person’a first approach would be … “Hi ! How ya doin’? I really wanna be in this here movie , and it would mean the world to me if you could consider me!” … But that’s just not the kinda person I am. I however would like to be offered a position in this movie, and I don’t know if it helps or not , but I have had some experience with working in school plays and musical. I am vocally talented too if that helps, but I’m really just looking to become an actress, and this looks like a great place to start. Thank you , and I hope that I receive an email or something from you guys.

    From a child I knew there was something significant about me but I never knew what it was but life, it is the greatest teacher and it is through my life experiences I found out who I am and my passion for life.
    Creative arts are my passion; singing, dancing, acting and I am interested in pursuing an acting career as this is my strong point.
    I am ready to make this move and I would like to be a part of this movie.
    I have done some stage plays in my church, a local sitcom here is Barbados called “Keeping up with the Joneses” and I had the opportunity to star in a BET Rising Starts short film “Oh to forgive”.

    No matter what age you are, this amusing story strikes a cord. Don’t we all have horrible, terrible, no good, very bad days? To a child, the most mundane incidents are world-enders. Epic. Life will NEVER be the same and maybe some yelling, foot-stomping, and even some tears, will ease the agony that adults just can’t possible understand. Then you become an adult and you still have horrible, terrible, no good, very bad days, and you’d sure like to do some yelling, foot-stomping, and crying, only now it’s unseemly and no one thinks a grown up throwing a tantrum is acceptable. Well… at least in public.
