We all want to be something in such a big ole world; from doctors to layers, to presidents and senators -but I wonder if I’m the only one who’s dreams constantly changed as she gets older…?

When I was about fourteen, I wanted to be a preacher and I had this wonderful vision to start a church of my own. I wasn’t into being no pastor’s wife, or anything like that but I wanted to go into ministry and spread God’s word full-time! Later, I had lost all hope of that and wanted to be a singer and actor. I had more passion to belt out notes, but nothing too fiery for acting compared to singing. Sixteen-years-old, mother put into John Robert Powers and I was going far as per the acting and modeling career. I had placed in the top ten, to go to LA to be represented by an agent so that I could act on some of the Disney/Nickelodeon sitcoms. The moment I was scheduled to fly out, I changed my mind and didn’t want to go. I felt like there was no challenge in that for me. Then, my acting coach wanted us to write a monologue to act out in front of the class for homework. That’s when becoming a writer hit me. I’d written my first book, was published and really loved the swell things that I could do with my imagination. That dream hasn’t died yet, and I hope it won’t ever!

Now, what do you want to be when you grow up?

  1. My biggest dream is to become an actor. Acting is something that I love to do, but I’ve told no one that I want to pursue it as a career. I’m just to scared to hear what they will say.
