    I have always wanted to do this type of stuff but my mom says it is not my type. She says I am a survival type.

      Janell, It you want to do this type of stuff go ahead it is up to you. Dont let anyone choose your path you choose your own. And show that person who said that “it is not your type” wrong. Take it from me.I go to an art school i am a drama and chorus major.And my mom told me that i could not make it into that school.That i was not talented enough to make it in, but i made it in and i am happy with the choose i made to keep going forward.
