This woman is strong, beautiful, and smart. I wanted to be an actress so bad, but my mom said no. After watching almost all of the things she has done and played in Ik this is what I want, and I am only 15! I did modeling and was on the McDonald's box and on a commercial in 2008, but acting is the only talent I have and without that I am nothing and she helped me see that!
