When I first started my site, I didn’t want to tell my age at the time because I felt that people would not take me seriously or wouldn’t give me a chance – I was probably right. But, after a lot of work, I feel like I have made my statement: age is just a number.
I just turned 20 last June, and the reason I wanted to put this out there is to encourage high school and college students to go for their dreams. Yes, we are still very young and have a lot of things to learn – but that does not mean you shouldn’t start now.
I’ve accomplished a number of things that I never actually thought I would ever do. When I was a senior in high school and I was trying to figure out what I would be doing two years from that day, it would not have been this. I imagined just being in school and being a student, and always having a set schedule like how I was used to. Now, I never have a set schedule – sometimes it is hectic because I like to plan things with my family and friends, but other than that – I absolutely love it.
I love everything I have done and thank God everyday for giving me these opportunities, and for giving me such a supportive family and group of friends. So, what do I want to do next? I really want a sports internship and would like to have new interviews up on a weekly basis. I’ve got a decent amount in the last few months, but just for fun some other people I’d like to interview are Pharrell, Shia Lebouf, Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Will Smith, Trey Songz, Chelsea Handler, George Lopez and eh I don’t know who else. One day I know it will happen – I just have to keep working until it does.
Well, I’m 20-years-old and I am sure proud to say it. I bet some of the people who have already worked with me are confused right now lol. Point is – Don’t be ashamed of your age, if people don’t take you seriously, prove them wrong.
