Well to start off...
i was born in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I however moved to a small town in Tennessee before i was old enough to even walk or talk. I grew up in east Tennessee in a town called Morristown about a an hour east of Knoxville. Most of my life here was spent going to school and dreaming of one day breaking out to follow my dreams of pursuing my career in acting and modeling. I never really fit in as a member of this small community and knew that there was more out there for me to experience in life other than my little neck of the woods. From a young age i knew where my ambitions were and that one day i set out on my journey to become something special in this world.
Everyone always knew that i had no intention of staying there once i was old enough to leave and im happy to say i didnt disappoint. ;) I come from a family that didnt't have the means to help me financially along my journey but were very supportive in what i wanted to do. If it werent for them believing in me and always feeding in to my ego i dont think i would of ever built up the courage to leave my small town to be honest. Throughout my travels i have experienced so much, and have had the opportunity to travel all over the country, and have had the honor of meeting some really interesting people.
i truly believe that everything that happens in your life and that everyone you meet has a purpose and reason for entering your world, even if its just a five minute conversation that gives you a different outlook on something you may of thought of differently before hand. I was blessed to grow up in a very liberal, open minded, house hold even though the rest of the people around me seemed to be so closed minded and ignorent. growing up in such an environment taught me to accept people for who they are and to try to understand people no matter what ethnic background, sexual orientation, or social class, they come from.
I believe this is fundamental element of why i have been capable of acheiving my success so far in life. Being from a small town didnt always have its perks though, i must say that i really knew nothing of what the real world was like and what it was capable of doing to anyone that went out to challenge it. Along my path i have had my lows and i sure have had my highs. i have been caught up in everything from the glamour of the nightlife to the predators that lurk in the sunshine offering deals of success in exchange for your soul.
Somehow though i have managed to survive and continue on towards my purpose in life. i have learned so much so far along my path in life and i wouldnt take anything back ( the good or the bad) because it really has made me the person that i have become today. Through all the pain and heartaches i have endured on my journey it is finally starting to turn around and i can see that i am getting closer and closer to acheiving my dreams.
