The creativity which resides within me for Writing, Editing, Performing Arts and Sales was not conceived in a classroom. By the age of 5 I was already writing weekly book reports as my mother attempted to satiate my minds hunger for knowledge. In addition, I was creating and writing my own short stories. Upon entering the 5th grade, with a College Level Reading & Comprehension test score, my mother was urged by teachers to skip me ahead 2 grades. She did not listen and so, from that moment and on through high school, I was often exempted from class work, placed into special advanced classes and entered into several writing competitions (many times as the youngest contestant) which I would go on to win and even perform live amongst hundreds of people.
