Newly Found Inspiration

 I actually have to give most of the credit for admiring this lovely, young actress, to Polka Dot; who recently did a post on this star.

Hailee Steinfeld is a new inspiration of mine. She's cute, she's fourteen, she's modest, she's mature, and she won an Oscar award for being the best supporting actress in the movie, True Grit.

After reading Polka Dot's post on her, I decided to simply look her up. After finding a few photos of her, I wanted to find out how she got her start in the acting industry, how she got her role in True Grit and basic information about she, herself.
And wow - I truly do admire her after seeing her on David Letterman and finding out a bit more about her. From what Hailee has explained about how she got her start, it just shows that with quite a bit of studying, practice and hard work, that you can, in fact, pursue your dreams.

This girl went from taking a few acting classes, studying, and being an extra on film sets....

...to becoming an Oscar award winning star!

I am the type of girl that wants to be like her. I want to have the grand privilege of walking down red carpet, I want to be in movies, I want to sip coffee with Hailee Steinfeld, I aspire to be a famous actress.

I know that famous people are overrated most of the time, and I know you are probably thinking, "Wow, you will never be famous. Good luck with that..." I even put myself down with that kind of thinking...

...But then I put myself in people like Hailee's shoes. I wonder how she got where she got. Everybody has to start somewhere, right? So what if you don't get a lead part in a play, so what if people blow you off when you explain your aspirations of being famous, so what if people tell you you'll never make it.

Celebrities, like Miss Hailee for example, I am sure had told people their aspirations of being famous...and people most likely blew them off and told them they couldn't do it.

I know this was the case with many stars, Lady Gaga being one of them. But look where they are. It takes hard, dedicated, aspiring work to get to where these people are.

Starting this Summer, I am going to try and build up a resume. I have talked to my mom, and I want to start by being an extra in a TV show and/or movie. We will see where God leads me from there. I know, for a fact though, that He is leading me into the acting industry; and I truly think that he used Polka Dot and Hailee Steinfeld to persuade me even more into doing this. Whether I will end up being famous or not...well, we will see about that.

If I do end up in the acting industry though, I desire to give God full credit for where I would be.

I desire for Him to lead me through this...step by step.

"For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11


  1. I loved this post!! I actually saw Polka Dot's post and I enjoyed this one just as much. I want to be like Hailee too, and I have dreams of winning Oscars and being on the Red Carpet, since my dream is to become..the next John Williams, I guess you could say that. I stopped putting myself down, and I hope you get on the red carpet. Who knows, maybe I'll be there with you :))

  2. Isn't she absolutely beautiful?? I just love how natural and simple yet gorgeous and stunning she looks. I am totally supporting your dreams, Anna. Maybe someday God will put you under the spotlight...who knows!:) If he does, remember me please! And at least send me a autograph;) Haha!:)
    God bless~

  3. Ooh, she's gorgeous! I love her hair. :)

    Such a neat sory about how she became famous! I wish that was me. *smiles*


  4. I loved her from the moment I saw her in True Grit.

    Life is made of dreams sweetie and I pray God's richest blessings on you as you "go forth" pursing His best for you. I can't wait to hear where He leads you.

  5. She is so gorgeous!
    And good luck with your acting dream - I know you can do it!
    I wish my mom was as understanding of my aspirations... :)
    --Love MCat

  6. You could totally be famous. And when you are, I will be like "oh, yes. I totally knew Anna back before her big break." :)

    It's so true--I love that Hailee seems like such a normal girl... making it seem possible for anyone who has the gumption to go for their dreams!

    With God, anything is possible. :) If that's where He wants you to be to glorify Him, that's totally where he'll put you!


I do love comments!
