There are many people who aspire to become famous for the money and attention, but how many of those people truly have a passion for being in the spotlight? If I was given the opportunity to earn a living doing what I love most, it would be acting. Portraying different characters and participating in films that could entertain the world would bring me nothing but happiness. Besides the pleasure acting brings me, I could potentially help spread the word of bullying. Becoming famous is not my main goal but being known so that I may make a difference in the world is. I would associate myself with campaigns that support the cause of anti-bullying and contribute whatever support they may need to be successful. I would share my stories about how I was bullied and the emotional problems it caused me, but also show others how to overcome it in a positive manner. It is my dream to become an actress and to help teens and children who experience bullying. Fame and money has its perks but making a difference in the world truly leaves a lasting impression on any individual.
