When I was about twelve years old and in the seventh grade, my class took a field trip to a broadcasting studio where we would film a fake news broadcast. I remember this day like it was yesterday. Everyone who went up to film their video, read their lines in the same dull, monotone voice. I had a plan and I didn’t tell a soul! I decided that when it was my groups turn, I’d read my lines in a British accent. So I did! When I started, I caught everyone in the audience off guard and they laughed. Their laughter made be laugh, but I recovered because I wanted my tape to be good. I wanted to stand out. I always knew I wanted to be an actress, but I never even fathomed becoming a celebrity correspondent. This video was a great pick me up! Check out my bangs, the way the boys read, and the girl who attempted an accent! HA!
Looking at this video today, makes me realize that when you focus on something, subconsciously it stays in your mind. Even if you walk away from something for awhile, it’s always there. This video was a reminder for me to continue on my own path and follow my dreams. Some goals aren’t always easy, but when you find your passion, stay on the course and you will find a way to make that dream a reality!
