I was born with weak health but, a strong spirit. When I decide that I want something, my blood starts flowing fast and I get all excited. I then start charging for the goal. This was what got me cast, in a radio play, at age 14. No one had hardly heard me speak before then. LOL The politics in the field, kept me from going forward. I did not start modeling until I was 23, and I didn’t get back into acting until around age 24. I didn’t really start chasing acting & modeling until about three years ago. My family obligations have kept me from doing as much as I want, in the field, but I love my folks. What are you gonna do? 🙂 I’ve been studying different cultures and languages, and have also been working towards a variety of masters certificates in the meantime.
