Don't stop believing....In your dream
I'm back from ESPN XGames Austin and I had a blast! I met a lot of cool people. Much respect to the professional athletes who competed at the XGames. Thank you for stopping by my sponsor tent, supporting my art and sending me good vibes.
A special thank you to Janet, Amber, Allison, Amy, Connor and the other staffers who checked on me making sure I was “good”. As you know I am 11 going on 12 and working an event like XGames is a big deal and I need an adult support system to help me with my company. Which leads me to my next comment. I personally hear this all the time but I want to tell you guys to follow your dreams no matter what. What other artist say is their parents did not support their art. I am blessed to have parents to support my dreams. But what if I didn't. I think I would still be sketching until the late morning. I just want to tell you guys follow your dreams never give up and be happy :). If I can you can too!
