Hey! I'm Chelsea Ann Morton and I am currently 15 years old. I've now been living in Florida for five years and can't believe the opprotunities I've stumbled upon! None of this could've ever happened in little Coventry Connecticut, my hometown. I attend Cypress Lake High School and Cypress Lake High School Center for the Arts as a Freshman. In the Center I'm an acting major. I live not too far away with my Momma (whom people say is my "twin"), Daddy, and brother (Jason). I am very active, and although I'm not that tall (5'6") and weight alot (142lbs.) - I'm vey thin. That is because I've been doing gymnastics since I was three, give or take a few years. I quit when I was ten and started again when I was fourteen - so I'm almost at competing level again. The thing I love about gymnastics is that it is constantly proposing obsticles to climb over. I'm always eager for a challenge! In sixth grade is when I relized I wante dto be dedcated to acting, so since then I've been in multiple school plays and have been trying to get my name known. Earlier this year I went to Individual Events competiton in Fort Myers Florida. I took my two monologues and was the only freshman from my school to do so. Although, I have to hand it to my granda morton for getting me this far. He passed away some time ago, but his memory and advice still inspires me and propels me back onto my feet. He told me, "Chelsea, they will laugh in your face until you face them head-on and show them who you are. Until you go and show them that you don't care and will just keep trying whatever you've set your mind to."
I have many, many hobbies. Gymnastics is my biggest one next to acting. Not only is it fun, but it helps you become flexible and to do many AMAZING stunts. I am two stunts away from competition level. Another thing I enjoy is knitting. Everyone says that it is a "granny" hobby; but I say "whatever". Knitting is relaxing and the things you make by doing it make wonderful gifts. I also play violin. So practicing that and trying to compose my own songs is really fun. Another thing I enjoy (but can't do in Florida) is hiking. Whenever we (my family) go up north - we MUST go hiking. Dancing is really fun too. Cheerleading style is amazing though, and I'm pretty good at it becase I have a good memory for the counts. In 2006 my squad (Cypress Lake Hornets) won 4th in Nationals! I also enjoy writing poetry; it helps me get my feelings out without blowing up!
I have many goals. And the thing is, I don't plan to stop until I've achived them! My main goal is to be in a feature film. That is the thing I've dreamed about and practiced for ever since I first put my foot onstage. That is not all though. It may be muy importante in my book, but it's not all! I also would like to continue preforming onstage, because there's nothing like the roar of applause and the swoop of confidence that come with it! Acting onstage is exhilarating, hard, but wonderful never the less. I would also like to be in commercials. Not only because it would get my face known, but because it would be good experience too. One commercial I am wanting to do is "Above the Influence". Fame is really what I'd love. Most people concentrate on the fortune, but I just love the spotlight!
