Savannah's Story

I chose Savannah for the V.O.W Project after my mum worked with the girls on the Alist and I was excited to meet people that I heard were good vibes that I wouldn’t have crossed paths with ordinarily. Showing that we can all find connections with one and other when we look and share.

For me this story is all about pushing yourself even though you know something is going to be hard. For me our struggles don’t make us who we are. What we achieve by overcoming our struggles and keep going when things are tough is what makes us powerful and makes us who we are.

"Ever since I was little I would get asked what I wanted to be when I grow up? I would always have fun with my answers, say something like “a fairy” or “nurse”  or even “an astronaut”. My mind was always changing, confused why I had to pick ONE profession for the rest of my life. Thats when I realised I can be “Actress” I could be anything I want to be, I mean given it’s all pretend but I don’t care.”
Not many people can say they have played a Notorious mean girl running for her life while living on a bus as robots take over the world. Sounds ridiculous I know, but that’s my reality and I love it! 
Speaking of reality, I’m dyslexic. School was one of my favourite places but I found it tough to focus at times but that didn’t stop me from falling in love with learning. I was a bright, bubbly and cheerful child. I presented myself confidently in front of others but unfortunately that didn’t stop the bullying especially when I couldn’t read my times tables out loud. Adults always tell you “words can’t hurt you” but they lied, words can really hurt you. Kids can be so mean, make you feel worthless. I would have gave anything back then to not have a learning disability and be “normal” but now I wouldn’t change it for the world. 
Dyslexia is part of me but it is not all of me. I am still that bright, bubbly and cheerful girl the only thing that has changed is my age. I’m so proud of who I have become and the obstacles I have faced. Yes, I struggle learning lines for my career and even remembering them. I have extremely bad anxiety and a bit of stage fright!! But what would life be without a challenge? I could’ve took The easy route but I didn’t and I praise myself on that every day. 
Not knowing where the future will take me is terrifying but so exciting. I have one single life to live full of changes, highs, lows, mistakes and accomplishments and that is why I believe you must make the most of every second your given! My name is Savannah and I love my life.
