I’m 22 going on 12, and I’m a country music and scary movie enthusiast. I have flaming red hair…and, unlike when I was 7, I love it. I have a really obnoxious laugh…according to my little sister. I’m that girl who will never be ashamed to be different. I love sparkly things, makeup, dresses, zombies…and puppies. I talk way more than any person ever should, which is ironic because I stutter. But even though some days are harder than others, I’m not ashamed of it anymore.
I’m an Aquarius, which basically means I’m a dreamer. My dad, Chris, is the reason I’ve been brave enough to follow my dreams. My mom is my biggest supporter, my number 1 fan…and she will always be my best friend. I’m one of 4 children. My family is very unconventional and it’s a really long story that usually takes a solid hour to tell in good enough detail. I grew up in a small town in Massachusetts. And yes, I do say “wicked” and misplace my R’s. I have an unhealthy obsession with Disney movies. I have one true friend. Her name is Lauren and I tell her I hate her all the time…but I’m totally joking and I actually adore her.
I tend to bite my nails when I’m overly nervous or stressed. I’m addicted to Starbucks. Even though I’m 22, you’ll probably see me order a Shirley Temple before I order an alcoholic beverage…and you may or may not see me coloring too. I really like the fall because there are pumpkin flavored treats…everywhere you go. I also like fall because that means I get to go pumpkin picking and go to Spooky World…which is pretty rad because I LOVE Halloween and I LOVE being scared. I over think things…a lot. I actually tend to over think about every little thing that is going on in my life…all at the same time. It results in a lot of sleepless nights. I’m a HORRIBLE liar. I never pretend to be something I’m not. What you see it what you get…always.
I was bullied. Many times. Not just in elementary school. Not just in middle school. Not just in high school. Not just once. Not just twice. But many times…my whole life. I never have been and never will be cruel enough to bully ANYBODY. Because I know how it feels to be criticized and attacked for no reason. Because of being bullied for so long, I developed social anxiety, which is what causes my stutter. People told me I would never make it in music because I stutter. People made me feel stupid for not going to college. What they said was never going to tear me down. Or change my mind about music. Or make me strive to fit in. People can say what they want. But just because people have something to say about you…doesn’t mean it’s true. And anyone who bullies any one of you…doesn’t know anything about you either.
And the last, but most important thing you’ll ever need to know about me is that I love to sing. I love to write songs. I love music. I love what I do more than anything in the world. I hope one day I’ll hear my songs on the radio, and play for sold out arenas, and win lots of shiny awards. But for now, I’m just working hard and taking it one day at a time.
Thank you for caring enough to reading this. I know it was kind of obnoxiously long…but the fact that you took the time to get to know me a little better makes me smile. So take a look around my website. Listen to my music and, if you like what you hear, spread the word about me to your friends. Because I’d really like to have a lot of fans someday. And be a famous singer…or something crazy like that.
