Jessica for Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ.
Organized by: Jessica Garcia
-My parents have always encouraged me to follow my dreams. So when I saw an opportunity to audition for AMTC, I jumped at the chance. I thought... What a wonderful way to go after my dreams! I get to do what I love and also be an advocate for Christ at the same time. So I took the chance and drove to Merriville where the auditions were being held. There were over 450 people there reaching for the same stars that I was... out of those 450-some people... only 20 could be selected for a call back. 20! I almost pick up my stuff and walked out right then. But something was different. I felt a pit in my stomach... Something was telling me to stay. So I took a leap of faith, went in, took my audition, and drove home. The next 24 hours were awful. I was nervous, nauseated, and yet I was still hopeful. Well I guess the feeling was correct, because at 11:15 the next morning, I got a call back. I couldn't believe this was happening. Out of over 400 people, what did I do to stand out? What did I do that was so special? I don't know if I'll ever be able to answer that, but I just praise God for giving me this opportunity. Never in my life did I think I would ever even make it this far, yet this is only the beginning. I have now been invited to participate in the SHINE Conference in Orlando Florida this summer. It's a six day events where I will showcase my talent to over 100 different casting agencies in hopes of getting signed!! This is where I need help. Although I made it this far the financial requirement for all of the training and the conference itself is more than what we can shell out by ourselves. I'm asking for help to follow my dreams. Any amount will help... $5, $10, $20... Anything. I would be so appreciative for your donation and I will make you proud! I'm ready to follow my dreams. And who knows... Maybe if I ever make it I can be a huge advocate for cystic fibrosis and raise enough awareness and money to maybe find a cure! The possibilities are endless. Thank you all. God bless.♡
