B.L.A.H ~ The balance of life and happiness: chapter 1

So I was 10 years old when I started working. Some of you might say what the heck how do you start working at 10 years old. Well I was a model and I started acting, I moved from a small town in Texas to a big city in Los Angeles California. I grew up in an environment of where people were just kind of laid back in a small town setting to hustle and bustle and the largest buildings I have ever seen in my life. I never knew a building could be over three stories high. It was something completely different and something that has made me who I am today.

I’ve had many people often say to me wow you were on TV that’s a huge accomplishment, but the problem is that people don’t know what it takes to be on TV and not recognizing who you are as a child. As a child actress /model I was constantly being portrayed as somebody or being someone that needed to fit a role. I never realized who I was until later in life. Child actors are something of a different creature at least that’s what I like to call them. I never shared who I was and I didn’t want anybody to know who I was especially being on TV. In middle school I was teased, I mostly ate my lunch in the hallways of the school and became a hallway monitor just so I could leave and not be bothered. I was bullied, I was teased, I felt completely out of place I lived a life of solitude. This solitude was simply so that I could protect myself in an environment where kids teachers and the people that surround me had no idea what I went through on a day-to-day basis. I didn’t go through anything horrible on my home life or even in my working life as an actress /model my horrible life with me was trying to fit in as a normal kid in a public school. Being a normal kid who’s on TV in a public school wasn’t exactly an automatic popularity vote for homecoming queen! Stay tuned for the rest of this story!
