Tell me about an average day in your life…
“I get up and get ready for school: shower, make-up, hair. Then I do my home-schooling work then I go to academy until 4:15 then I come home, study my songs, monologues and scenes. Then I have dinner, talk to my friends online (email & Facebook). Then I go to bed.”

What music do you listen to?
“Pop, Happy Hard-core… anything with a really colorful beat to it.”

When did you first realize you were gay?
“Eleven. At first it scared me but after a while I got used to it and realized you can’t really stop it.

Who knows and how did they find out?
“My mom, my dad, my sisters… pretty much everyone. My mom and my sister knew first and I came out to my dad a few months later and then my grandparents. My friends kind of knew so I didn’t really have to come out to them."

Who’s the most important person in your life?
“That’s a tough choice but I’d have to say my mom. She’s always been there for me, always. It doesn’t matter who I am or anything she’s always supporting me.”
