Column – Amanda LaCount
It always amazes me when people give me insults veiled as compliments. These “compliments” are given with a smile like we should appreciate what they are saying. I think it is time to educate the world, including close friends and even relatives. Below are a few of my all-time favorites.
My mother and I have a unique relationship. Besides raising my six brothers and sisters and me as a single parent, she has gone above and beyond that. She instilled in us a confidence and belief that we can do anything.
I recently took a trip to Hawaii and was amazed at how many women of all sizes were wearing two-piece swimsuits.
So many people ask me what it’s like to be me. I know my life isn’t typical. While many young women my age are in college, I can usually be found shooting on set, auditioning, rehearsing or taking dance classes. (Photo by @leegumbsphotography)
