You guys are truly amazing. I am so happy to share my story with you! I did not want to share my story to make a point to someone, rather to bring sexual abuse, and being homeless to attention. I have read so many messages telling me that you are in the same situation & that I am helping you get through it. It is truely a blessing to have such amazing people support me. I love helping people, and this story is only the beginning. Yes, things have happened to me and my family that should never happen to anyone. But what would a story be without a happy ending? Right now I would say I am in the beginning of my story, and every event that happens is just another chapter in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your kind words, everyone! Always remember this quote! (it is hung up in my bathroom hehe) ” Reach for the moon, and even if you miss you will land among the stars “ xoxo Cheers

Since my last personal diary post, I have been getting a lot of comments saying how ungrateful I am, how selfish I am yatta yatta. Then on the other hand i get these amazingly sweet people telling me what an inspiration to them I am. I am not trying to spoon feed anyone. This is who I am, I am a really driven person who wants to dabble into everything & try as hard as I can to reach my dreams. I have been through hell and back. Many of you do not know what I have been through throughout my life. So hey, why not share it with you to get the record straight.
When I was 8 years old, I was molested, then my parents got divorced. After that my mom,sisters & I were homeless for 2 weeks, finally we moved into a homeless shelter for a month. My mom was always trying to keep us busy. We were always in sports, after school clubs, always did fundraisers..etc. I am not telling you this to feel bad for me, because honestly that is the last thing that I want from anyone. My sisters and I were the poorest kids in school, except we never acted like it, we didn't percieve ourselves as being homeless and being put through a terribly rough time.
While in college I was in a group project and we decided to help out The Salvation Army, we held 3 bake sales and raised over 300 dollars. We then went to the dollar store and picked out 300 items for the Salvation Army's shelter. We picked out toiletries, christmas presents, makeup, crayons, hair supplies, toys, pretty much everything. I also found an organization while on Warped Tour that was for kids who were sexually abused. I immediatly took a liking because there are no organizations like that.
So for the record, I have been in crappy situations, I have been that person that was homeless and had no money. But I am always willing to help out people who are in the same situations as I am. I always want the best for myself and my family because I do not want them to go back into that situation that we were in. I am a driven person, I want to succeed and I know I will, you just need to put your mind on your goal, and you can achieve wonders. I do not want anyone to feel bad for me, what is in the past is the past, and I can only bring out the positives that came from it. I also do not want people telling me how hard it is for people out there and how much of a brat I am for wanting more. Well, I have been in there shoes, and I know how hard it is to get out of that situation. I am always wanting more because I do not want to settle for less.
Always remember "Shoot for the moon, and even if you miss, you will land among the stars"

Yeah, you heard me, Tupac performed at Coachella. As soon as I woke up Josh showed me this video of Tupac performing with Snoop Dogg.. I was REALLLY creeped out and also like "Wow, he IS still alive?!"
Then I found out that it was a hollogram..But like who did the vocals? How did he give a shoutout to Coachella? How was he insync with Snoop? So many questions!!
If you haven't watched Tupac's performance, I think you should see it for yourself!
Tupac is still alive, or our technology is getting SUPER high tech!!
What do you think of it?!
PS.I mean they better hollogram John Lennon next!
So right now I am sitting in my hotel room in NYC and watching Beauty and The Beast on ABC Family. Today was such a wirlwind. I feel very blessed to have this opportunity with Seventeen to be apart of the Style Council, however while I was there I couldn't help but be some what dissapointed in myself. I feel like I should be further then I am.I have so much drive it can make me go crazy. I am myself's toughest critic. I want to be further in my career, doing more with fashion, maybe acting & music.I have so many different things I want to dabble into right now. I feel like sometimes people think I have no idea what I am doing because I want to do so much at once. The truth is I will never settle for being just average, I want to push myself further and further.I never want to settle for how life is. I know how cliche does that sound, but I REALLY do feel it that way.
Today when I was in the Hearst office it was so much fun and such a crazy experience. I want to be the girl on the cover of Seventeen. I want to push myself hard to succeed in whatever goals I desire to set my heart to. Sitting in my hotel I am like thinking about 100000 things. Questions like, should I do acting again? should I try music? should I just stick with what I am doing? should I do this, should I do that?
I don't know I feel like I am at a time where right now is the time.I want to put myself out there, I want to have several journeys, and make it possible to follow my dreams and achieve all of them. I am in an inspiring and modivational mood right now.. must be that soy green tea latte from Starbucks.
