I wouldn't have picked my first career. But it started before I was old enough to pick much of anything. At that time I wasn't in control of what I wore or ate or even where I went to the bathroom. I was a child star. Well, calling me a star might be a bit of a stretch but I was a model and an actress.
I went out on auditions. I had an agent. I made money. I appeared in magazines and on billboards. I was in a commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. And I went to the same celebrity dentist as the girl from Punky Brewster.
I don't regret it, any of it. I'm glad my parents pushed me into it and I'm glad they let me quit. It's part of who I am. It's probably why I can go live on national radio and just have fun. A few years ago I did a story about this for B-Side Radio. I hope you enjoy it.
