This Girl of the Moment Loves Cheerleading, Modeling and is Writing a Book

Kelly is a 13-year-old “total girly-girl” who loves cheerleading, pageants, modeling and acting.

GOTM kay_be_purplinShe first got involved in cheerleading when a friend at school encouraged her to tryout. “At first I thought that I was no good. Then people began to be impressed by me and I said to myself ‘Wow maybe I’m not as bad as I thought.’”

Her modeling started at the young age of 7. “…everyone in my family are models so it kind of grew onto me,” she said. “I just like all the attention on me because when I was growing up my life was not as fortunate as what it is now.”

Even though she’s had some incredible opportunities with modeling and cheerleading, Kelly also mentioned that she suffered from bullying when she was a child. But instead of feeling sorry for herself she channeled her feelings into writing.

“I did go through bullying at a point in my life and I think that many girls can relate to what I went through,” she said. This lead her to start a book series that she keeps in her diary called, “Me, Myself & I.”

Kelly has mentioned that she has to budget her time wisely. “Now managing my writing and my chosen career is actually quite easy,” she said. “I write while I am at school so that my teachers can help me with my corrections and for modeling I just get help at home with my sisters.”
