|I have participated in many pageants, one a state level National American Miss Pageant in which they gave me tips and call backs in modeling, acting, performance, talent, and sportsmanship. The others where here locally, a few being a success. They helped encourage me to following my dreams. I have also been a part of a local ballet/tap/jazz/lyrical dance studio where I have performed at for many years, in a group and as a soloist.I was active in a theater camp for two consecutive years where I learned to put myself in the characters shoes, take on their personality, show emotions, and memorize scripts. I have also been through a couple of professional photo shoots where they taught me how to be in character visually.During all of these experiences I have received compliments on how natural I seemed to be on set.Through it all, I have learned from praise and constructive criticism.
