She is a flower spelled incorrectly, J-A-Z-M-I-N Luperena. She is a 17 year old Brooklyn native and currently studying Sociology at Hunter college. Her passion lies in God and acting. She is awkward and different but is very comfortable in her own skin and encourages every one else to be the same. She is a free spirit filled with positive vibes open for new adventures and an eagerness to learn. She will change the world through the platform of influence that comes with acting. She is a hungry, thrift shopping, longboarder ready to leave her footprints on the world!! :)
Well, Nina and her monkey. No. Not a real monkey. Sorry for killing your dreams. Nina is a ventriloquist. So basically she and her monkey had a conversation with the audience where the monkey continuously interrupted her.
She began speaking... to me... obviously, cus there was no one else in the room... "What's this feeling? I remember it just like it was yesterday. Almost like deja vu." Was this lady crazy??? Naw, she was just old. Stated that she was around 101 years old... "Do you remember the last time you voted?" Well I'm only 18...
Every moment is a key decision whether it feels like it’s one or not. William spoke to this young man about what many would say is a key decision: marriage. But is marriage the key decision? Or the engagement? What about the time you first met your partner? Those are all key decisions.
I'm group leader for a group of 8-9 year olds at Goddard Riverside Performing Arts Camp. We were taking our kids to see Matilda, a show which we had learned a song and dance from. You already know they were on tilt and they even got dressed up. All I'm thinking is - ugh, I gotta take these kids on the train to Time Square. But my group behaved really well.
So this teacher is funny, always rambling on, half the time being irrelevant or unprepared. And it's like I'm not teaching cus I'm perfect I'm just as fucked up as you. "You didn't come here to listen to me give speeches instead you came to listen to yourself. Your true self. Not your habits. Not who you are with electronics, alcohol or sex but what your darkest fears are etc..."
This is based on a true story. Alice Austen is one of the first female photographers to work outside the confines of a studio. Now picture this, someone walking around with a big chunky object claiming to freeze time. Crazy. Now, picture a lady in the 1800’s doing this. They would think of her as mad
I have to say I saw my mother in Shelah. My mother never told me she was dying, the same way Shelah never told her family and I think I understand that struggle now. How DO you tell your family you’re going to leave them?
Love is too much to let Emily go but not enough to stop cheating on her with Chris. Love was too much for him to let me go but not enough for him to stay faithful... Love is relative. Love is not enough. You can love someone all you want, it doesn't mean that you will give them the best they deserve…
The father wanted to go back to Zimbabwe and give back to his people. He felt bad he was a middle class man with a great home and has family and friends that were living back in the slums. This made me hit up someone from my old school to see if the senior dues had passed, so I can give back to my high school by paying peoples senior dues. It had passed though. But now I can look for different ways to give back all around me.
Jim spoke his thoughts, from brain to mouth without hesitation. He reminded me of a small part of me. He was kicked out of his old school for questioning the existence of God. That scenario reminded me of the time I shut down a panel of Pastors at church camp by telling them the bible verses they were using were out of context. Jim would be getting a full ride and his response was, “Why are you giving me a scholarship, I flunked out of my last school?”
