I feel that Janet Jackson is a force to be reckoned with. Her forever reinventing style of music, fashon and she sets the trends and all the ladies seem to follow. In 1993 I met Janet (mind you that she is a mentor to me ) and it was a dream come true for me.
We talked and the most surprising thing is that she isn't like, I 'm up here and your down there .She made me feel very comfortable and after our conversation I let her know that I would be graduating from high school soon and I would be pursuing my dream as an entertainer and she didn't deture me away from that, but she expressed that an college education was very important and that if I had the chance to get one get it.
I was hurt at first because all I wanted to do was be an entertetainer like her and here is my mentor telling me to go to school. At the time I didn't see that you need to further your education in this day and age. I am a full time student at my local university here in Ohio. I'm doing pretty good with my grades and presently I'm writting a play. I dance and I will be an entertainer one day and to Ms. Janet I say thank you.
