˜ "My dream is to become a TV Host, ideally in entertainment at ENews or Entertainment Tonight, something like that where I can have a platform to get my voice out because I have a lot of things I'm passionate about.
When I first started, I was really really shy. You could look at some of my first interviews and they were just horrendous. I didn't know what I was doing and I was so nervous, so this work has really helped me grow into myself and now I can talk to anybody and it doesn't make me nervous. That's been really good, but it's also been a way for me to talk about issues I care about like children's rights, safety and I'm really into anti-bullying. I was bullied in high school a lot and it was so bad that my senior year I had to transfer schools, so since then I've been very vocal about ending it and teaching kids how to combat it. I used to do pageants back in Michigan and I've done a couple here and that was my platform, but I realized if I do become a TV Host, that gives me a way to show a bunch more people what I care about. Through those pageants i can get my point across to only so many people, but through writing and posting, it's a way for me to actually talk about what I care about to more people."
