Loyal reader Unique writes:

I am a loyal reader of your site. I have been contemplating submitting for a while until I have seen your past few morning Glory Posts and thought: why not? I am submitting my sister Simone. She is from the Virginia and is an aspiring entertainer (Dancer, Rapper, songwriter and Model).

Simone was born to be an entertainer. At the tender age of 5, Simone began dance training at a known local Dance and Gymnastics studio. Simone quickly stood out, excelling in hip-hop, jazz, tap, lyrical, and gymnastics. Proving her dance abilities she was asked to become a teacher’s assistant, and later went on to
run her own classes.

Simone has participated in many dance competitions and has won first place platinum many times. In 2008 Simone was one of the few dancers selected from The school to audition for America’s Got Talent in Washington, DC. Finding consolation from the drama that comes with being a teenager (now 19) she began writing poetry, which lead to writing lyrics. To date, Simone has recorded over 20 songs, connecting with DMV local artist. She is determined to make a name for herself, as she learns the pretty and ugly of the business.

She’s on Twitter (@TheRealSimone_)
and Instagram (kiarasimone_).

Thank you for your

B. Scott said:

It’s really sad that people have to go through something like this in 2013 when we’ve seen all different types of personalities. I’m not the first of my kind. There has been Michael Jackson, Prince, Grace Jones and the list goes on. So this is really shocking to me.”
