A mother for thirteen years now of two beautiful children. Eva 13 and Michael 10.
I retired when they were born from a career as a freelance food stylist.
In the last five years I have made a gradual return freelancing as a food stylist again. Now the kids are older and it is good for them to do more on their own and learn to be responsible. I was ready to make money and get out of the house and be creative again.
A few years ago I started thinking what do I love doing. I am always looking at my kids and observing what their talents are. I try to sign them up for classes in areas I think they would excel.
Having just turned the big 50 this year. I thought I have to make things count for the second part of my life. What do I want to do what would make me happy.
I said "acting"!!
I have been taking acting classes and more speciafically have chosen to pursue voice acting. I have a goal to work in this business even though it seems like an impossible feat. I am going full steam ahead and will not stop until it happens.
I want to show my kids and husband that you need a goal and you keep going until you reach it. No matter what others tell you!!
