Awesome news

Well I have had a busy crazy week. We got a call just a few days back from someone at John Casablancas modeling and career center. It seems they had a scout at the Mrs. Teen Columbia Padget. And they were very interested in my daughter. To the point of finding out our info for contact. So they wanted to schedule an appointment for us yesterday so she could interview and audition. So we passed that and go ta call back. today we had to go for our call back interview and to bring her portfolio. ..Well it has been 2 long days let me tell you. She wore one of my gorgeous custom creations last night and another one again this evening. The lady who is over the international modeling and talent search came up to us last night in the hallway before it even began and started talking to Savannah and wished her luck. She also did part of Savannah's interviews last night. She told me today that she knew last night Savannah was perfect . Very talented and had just the looks they were looking for. Fair complexion. Dusting of freckles over the nose. Classic all American preteen. And very talented to boot. She couldn't believe how Savannah was not nervous or afraid one bit to go on the cat walk/ runway they had set up and how she looked her dead in the eye to answer all of her questions. She said Savannah seems very mature for her age. More mature than some of the older girls are. And that what really impressed her was that when Savannah told her how she loved to sing and how she got up on the stage at her school every Friday morning to sing a different song for the talent show each week. And how Savannah had no fear of performing in public. And she loved how Savannah wanted to not old model but act and sing and dance. And that they really thought she'd be able to do all of that or at least most of it. She seemed very impressed with Savannah. She got us all signed up and Savannah will start her 14 week training classes this Sunday. Savannah will learn all kinds of things, etiquette, makeup , runway poise and turns, how to prepare monologue's for commercials. How to make a professional portfolio. They will do all of her pictures for her photo shoots at John Casablanca's. She will be learning how to audition,resumes, acting lessons, scripts, directors signals , emotions ,cold read skills, individual and group performances.. commercial modeling, television and films, promotional modeling. After she completes her training then they will refer her to one of their agency's and assist her in interviews to secure modeling and acting assignments. Only bad part is we have to drive her to Charlotte NC for everything. So boy are we gonna be on the road and burning gas. But it is so well worth it. To see my baby's goals and dreams come true. this is all she has ever wanted to be able to model and act and sing and be on stage. What a little social bug I have. We will just have to buckle down and get on a much tighter budget so she can do all of those things. And we can afford it. Any way she is so excited. She came home said she had to go upstairs for a minute. i asked what for . She said I need to scream I'm so excited. I asked her to please close her door while she screamed. So she did she yelled her head off. wooo hooo. I made it. I got accepted. She said when she came back down isn't that so cool mom. I knew I'd make it. God I love that little girl. To see her so happy and so excited is awesome. Now wish us lots of luck . And oh yea we need to win the lotto while we are at it. Who knows we may have a future movie star one day. if not at least she will learning valuable skills and life lessons and doing something she likes.
Now to get back to me learning how to run that new embroidery machine of mine. I may have to resort to useing it to make some money for gas and modeling expenses and tuition and books . So ok guys locally if you need something ask me I may can do it for you. But I do not work for free. As my time and my talents as a fabric artist are very valueable. I hope everyone is as excited as we are about all of our exciting news.
