Anita Bueno's Modeling Jobs, Acting Auditions and Additional Experience
For me this is the first chapter in my new book of life. I don't have any experience except for my roles in my drama classes in high school. My family and I were unable to put in the costs of my childhood dreams and ambitions. I never let that get me down, but unfortunately it did hold me back. Since I wasn't going to be able to be the athletic one, I began drama and chorus classes. At the time all I could think was "I really wish I could be the athletic one that was too busy being outside w/ too many friends to count w/ too many plans too keep straight."
I realized my dream for music when I met best friend and I began our 1st chorus class in 7th grade. At the time the boy band era was bringing us *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, 98 degrees. Our church organ player was our school chorus instructor and she had taught us the notes, pitches, speeds, etc. I still to this day can't believe the difference in the sound of your voice when you don't warm up your entire head before you sing.
My home life has been very confusing. I was adopted before I was even born (You would shocked how that happened). My parents' had alot of resentment and animosity towards each other so I always stayed in my room learning all the singers' lyrics, dances, stage presence. When I turned 14 my parents finally separated and I went with my mother. Less than a year later I was placed in foster care b/c she just got too sick for me to take care of her. I wanted to run away!.... This was a nightmare! I didn't want to leave my mother! My Dad couldn't take me b/c he had moved into a rooming house for men only.
When I went into Foster care I was taken to what seemed to be the country island between Interstate 40 and Business 40. There were horses, donkeys, bunnies, dogs, quails, foxes, deer, turkey. WOW! To me DSS sent me to a petting zoo. Instead I gained 6 new family members. 3 little sister, a little brother, a big sister(FM), and an older brother(FD). I was very welcome. At the time I thought I was going to be home schooled until DSS said there was a school on the same rd. my little brother and sisters were going to.
When I began high school in this new town w/ new people at home and at school. I felt like that bag from American Beauty, just blowing through the wind in the mix of leaves in the air. Apart of the crowd, but obviously different.
I felt so blessed when I saw my class choices. There were so many classes based around art in so many mediums of art you would have thought that it was a magnet art school. So chorus, art, and drama were my electives of choice. Unfortunately, all I could do was art.
I found that I had a good hand for art, and at the time I thought that that was what I was meant to do. I made great friends and was make great grades. I still had a whole. I wanted to be known. I began participating in the DECA club b/c my fashion marketing class friends thought I should do a club for my college applications. It was a great marketing club for young future business men and women.
After graduating high school in 2006. I left my foster home. They're own family life was going down hill and instead of going to college I just left so that I wouldn't be in the way.
Since that day I had moved from place to place met so many types of people. I've seen the best to the worst situation. I could write a drama/comedic tragedy of my adventures. I have just settled for less and have only done things that would make others happy. I want to be known for doing what makes me happy. I know I'm pretty and I want to show it off. I know I have a pretty voice and I want to show it off. I know I'm good at making people believe I'm a chameleon and I want to show it off. I know I have a beautiful body and I'm doing Shaun T's Insanity to bring it out so I can show it off! I know I want to be the change I want to see in the world and I know I want to be known, loved, and looked up to by everyone. Most of all I want to do this for myself b/c I know I can be known.
