How I became and actress, social media influencer, and a child inventor.
I have always loved to entertain! My passion for performing really started at a young age. I began dancing at the age of 3. I was signed by a talent agent at the age of 7. I competitively danced for 5 years. I danced for my hometown Cleveland Cavaliers and also performed at Walt Disney World. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and my family moved to Los Angeles 3 years ago to further my acting career. I love creating content on my YouTube channel and have weekly episodes every Friday at 12:30pm pst/ 3:30pm est. Recently, I appeared on the Showtime Golden Globe winning drama series, The Affair and just filmed my first feature film, The Christmas Dance.
My invention and patent:
Bear On The Chair ® is a year round behavior buddy for kids. It is a great behavior tool that parents and teachers can use with children 3 and up. It comes with a cute bear that wears a T-shirt with a velcro patch. There are two patches included. There is a happy face patch and a sad face patch. When kids are behaving well, doing great and working on their goals, manners, skills, etc the care giver, teacher, or parent will put on the happy face patch. If things get off track, the parent will switch the patch to the sad face patch. It gives kids an instant visual tool to let them think about what they are doing well or the things that needs improvement.
Bear On The Chair ® also teaches empathy by showing children how their actions are affecting others. It’s also a great motivator for them to work hard to keep working towards their goals. Bear On The Chair ® also helps children with Autism. The velcro patches become the voice for children with autism that are nonverbal. They use the patches to express their emotions to the their care giver, when otherwise they would get upset and frustrated when unable to express their feelings.
