The Good Life|June 2020
Twelve-year-old boys throw baseballs. They hit home runs and celebrate their touchdowns.
I can’t throw a baseball and I definitely can’t leap high into the air to snag a football in the end zone.
But I absolutely can entertain a group of people and make them smile. I am a 12-year-old boy who can dance, sing and act.
I started off like most boys. I tried being on a baseball team for three years. At first I enjoyed it because it was new, but soon after I got bored and then quit. It just wasn’t fun to me because it just never seemed to fit my personality.
I also tried soccer, karate and tennis but I quit those too even though I was really excited to try them out. I wanted to do something after school for fun, but all the activities I was trying out didn’t stick.
I remember that the first play I saw was Peter Pan, a play that my big sister Kylie was in.
When I saw her performing her heart out and making the whole audience smile, it made me want to be up on stage doing that too.
