Actress When I’m older, I want to be anactress. I have been taking acting classessince I was 4 years old. In my nine yearsof acting, I have been in eleven plays.Usually they aren’t plays that are wellknown, because my acting teachermakes our class write, direct, and star inour own. This has all been a big part ofmy life because without acting I wouldmost likely be a very shy person, and I’mnot. Acting has formed who I am todayespecially since it taught me to just goout and try new things and to takechances, which is now something Ialways do. I have two favorite actressesand that’s Jennifer Aniston and HelenaBonham Carter.
Beach Ever since 2010, my stepmom, step sister, dad, and I andsome of my step mom’s family, go tothe beach every summer at leasttwice. We always go to HamptonBeach and spend the whole daythere. We started doing this becausewe thought it would be good to havea few family days since we don’t seeeach other a lot.
Cape Cod Every year my dad’sside of the family and I goto our beach house in CapeCod. We spend two weeksthere. It’s a great timebecause we spend thewhole day at the beachand go to fun familyparties. I have so manygreat memories there. My11 year old cousin Alexaand I always take so manypictures which makes morememories and then welook back on the picturesthe next year.
Dad My dad and I are very close to eachother. When I was younger, he wasn’t aroundthat much. He was always working and I neverspent time with him either. Then when I was 9years old my mom divorced him and he wasgoing to move to North Carolina. I thought Iwas going to loose my dad forever. Then hedidn’t end up moving because he knew hewould never see me. Ever since that happenedmy dad and I have become very close andspent a lot of our time together. Now he livesabout 45 minutes away from me and we arestill close but I’m usually never aroundbecause I’m always out with friends. Sundaysare my days when I spend all day with him.
Easter Now that I’m older I don’t really doanything for Easter anymore, but now Ialways help set up games for the youngerkids. I look forward to this just because I getto spend time with my older cousins and Iget to watch my little ones have a good time.I also get to spend time with my youngerones because I usually help them out witheverything. Family time is always importantto me so I make sure to spend every possibleminute with them.
Friends I always surroundmyself with friends. Withoutmy friends I don’t even knowwhere I would be. Sometimesmy parents don’t alwayssupport everything I do orwant to do and I know I alwayshave my closest friends to fallback on. I’m very close to all ofthem and we all have an equaltrust which I love. They are alllike a second family to me andI love them all so much.

It’s a greatway to spend quality time with each otherand we always make a huge mess andthen clean it yup together. Haley and I liketo through flour on each other and seewho can roll the dough out the fastest. Nomatter who wins its always so much funand when we’re too lazy to cook we justorder it and in the summer my sister and Ieat it outside.

A lot ofpeople say she and I look a lotalike and I love it when they saythat because I think my sister isbeautiful. She’s a very goodmother too and at such a youngage for having two kids, I thinkshe does great. She’s a good rolemodel and I look up to her.
St. Leo’s The first school I everwent to was St. Leo’s which is aCatholic school. I went thereup until 6th grade then I cameto Sky View. I went back in 7thbut I did very bad at thatschool so I came back.Honestly it’s not a good schoolat all and the uniforms arereally uncomfortable. I wouldnever go to any Catholic schoolagain. Also the teachers aren’tnice at all and are very rude.
Titi Terri I have an aunt namedTerri and whenever I go toNew York I always stay at herhouse. She has two kids, mycousin Alexa and my cousinMatthew. My Titi Terri is 43years old and was born in theBronx. She’s a good motherand aunt and I’m grateful forall the times she’s let my dadand I stay with her. Withouther for a while we would’vehad no place to live.
I have four uncles. UncleOne of them is on mymom’s side of the familyand the other three are onmy dads. The one on mymoms sides name is Jeff. Ialmost never see himbecause him and my momdon’t talk a lot. The otherthree, Jack, Kevin, and Bob, Idon’t see very often either.They all live in New York so Iusually see them a fewtimes a year. Out of the fourmy Uncle Kevin is myfavorite.
Vision I have had glasses sinceI was in fourth grade. I havealways had really bad vision. Idon’t wear my glassesanymore because they aren’tstrong enough for my eyes.Also because I lost them. Irefuse to wear contacts thoughbecause I don’t like touchingmy eyes and I think they wouldbother me all the time.
Wish My wish is to become anactress when I grow up. I havewanted to be an actress since Iwas three years old and I’ve beenacting since I was four. Peoplealways ask me why I like it and Ihonestly don’t know why. Overthe years it’s just become apassion for me and something Ilove to do. I would love tocontinue and becomeprofessional. Even if it’s just playson Broadway, I love the feeling ofacting.
X-ray I have always been carefulwhen I’m dancing or playingsports. I have never gotten an x-ray before because I usually don’tget hurt. The only time I get hurtis when I’m dancing and I do astunt wrong, which usuallydoesn’t happen. I dance at PaulaMeola’s in sterling and I wouldsay since I’ve never gotten hurtthat they have good, professionalteachers.
Yogurt Every Thursday after mysister and I have dance, wealways go to the store afterwardsand get yogurt. We started doingthis a few years ago because wewanted to eat healthier. Afterdance instead of eating junk, wenow always have yogurt. Weboth always get the same thingand that’s either strawberrycheesecake yogurt or chocolatemousse yogurt.
Zeke My brother Zeke is 28years old and I didn’t grow upwith him. The last time I sawhim was in 2007 and I don’ttalk to him very often. Thereason why is because hejoined the Marines in 2009. Inever get to see him anywaysbecause when he goes homehe goes to Florida with hismom. He hasn’t been a bigpart of my life but he’s still mybrother and I still love him.
