I grew up in michigan my whole life. I had a normal childhood most of my life. Then when I was six years old my life changed right before my eyes. My mother had passed away leaving my father, my brother and me in a life of complete shock and sadness. I didn\'t really know what was going on with my mom I just knew that she was never coming back and that I had just lost the one person who had not only been my mother but my best friend in the world. My dad grew very depressed and started to drink and smoke alot. He ended up costantly losing and gaining weight because he wasn\'t eating properly. When I was seven I received another shock my father had been taken to the hospital because of a collapsed lung. I thought I was going to lose both of my parents but was relevied when my father got better and returned home from the hospital. At the age of eight years old my father met a new lady in his life named Linda and they emidatly had a connection. I knew that they loved one another when linda and her two children moved in with us a year later. I grew close to my new bother frank and my new sister amandah. In te year of 1996 my father married linda and a new journey began in my life. We moved up state to Curran Michigan from Lapeer. It was a small farm country that had very nice people and a lot of open fields to roam in. I went to school at Fairview Area High and grew up being picked on by alot of people becasue I use to wear these glasses that made my face look bigger then it really was. I studied alot so that one day I could go some where in life other then living in the small farm town. I graduated with high marks. I got on the honor roll, had one of my poems published in the national poet society and I was looking at going into the military as soon as I got out of high school. But then life happened again. In my senior year I ended up injuring one of my legs and the knee on my leg didn\'t heal right and I developed arthritis in it. I was unable to go into the military so I ended up instead moving down state to Grand Rapids where my older brother Danny lives. At the age of just 19 I got a job at the local Meijers grocery store and saved up to go to college. I finally went to college in the fall year of 2004 because of living expenses I wasn\'t ablt to go sooner. I took my basic classes first along with a class in acting and Jazz dance and I loved the classes. It made me realize that maybe I might have a chance to do something big with my life instead of just being known as Tara the farm gal, or Tara the nice girl that everyone can talk to. It would be nice if everyone knew me because I became an actress or a model.
