Chi likes to be the center of attention.
We’ve known it since she earned “Most Dramatic” in her K-5 class. She was probably the first – and only – recipient of the honor.
Next year, in middle school, she’ll be taking drama class. I can only imagine what will be revealed when she is allowed on stage and given freedom to improve without judgement.
Will she build up her voice?
Find her true passion?
Become a star?
I doubt she’ll determine that acting is not for her. Any child (or adult) who parades purposefully through Wawa in her fancy chapeau and matching sister dress just for acknowledgement of her “fierceness” isn’t going to shy away from the bright glare of spotlights.
My gal’s going to be famous. Mark my words: she’s somebody amazing.
And it makes me proud.
I see her budding into a young lady. She’s developing a confidence in being herself, despite the critics. She’s not afraid to challenge style trends, or to completely abandon them if need be.
I’m envious of her ability to be the girl she truly is.
