My name is Alana and I am 15 years old. My father is an accountant for a plastics company and my mother works at a supermarket. My family and I have lived in New Jersey all our lives.
Obstacles To My Dream
Did you hear that new song on the radio? It's by that person named %$#@&.
How did she win that Grammy? I've never even heard of her!
When I am older, I want to be a musical artist. I've always been drawn to music and it never fails to lift my mood. I am currently teaching myself how to play the guitar and the ukulele. I hope that one day I will learn to play the harp.
How I Will Achieve This Dream
My parents are very supportive and have always surrounded me in music. My mother can play the accordion and my father likes to sing. Since I was very young, my father had exposed me to older music which I still love to this day.
The music industry is very brutal and hard to succeed in; many people who manage to do so are only one hit wonders. There also aren't many well-paying jobs in the industry that don't require you to be famous.
Do you remember that country singer? Me neither!
Yeah I love that song! Don't remember what it's called or who it's by but I love it!
I will keep practicing what I know and expanding my knowledge. I will also keep performing with my friends so that I can lose my stage fright and get better with practice.
