The Actor for a family of 3

I was just 19 when i finished highschool and didnt quite know if i could get into a good school. The ambition I have put me on a higher level then my peers making me realize that i can make it without having fears. Doing countless shows and people telling me they are my biggest fans, made me realize that one day on holllywood boulavard i could be that man. Mom is a struggling single parent raising me into a grown man; she constanly downs my father for not helping her with me so she could get strong again. Cold,heartless,and came through to see me only a few times although he wasnt really a bad dad in my eyes, but a man who was just trying to survive on his own everyday when she cried and everyday that he got old. Did that stop me? nahh i just learned from mom that father or no father you have to learn how to take care of yourself, not repeat the same mistakes they did and to be free. So what did i do? I got off my behind and put my head in the books because when i was little i would always goof off.  Mom told me,"stop complaning, stick to it you can never study to hard."  Became an actor and by junior year i was given an award for best actor in a musical "Jekyll & Hyde. Then when senoir year came i gained 3 more major awards before i could even blink my eyes. Getting a scholarship is all thats needed so i could go to school and really make a name, and hey if i get big from it one day maybe even some fame.
