Hi Ellen!Since I was little, I've dreamed of one day meeting you and have dreamed of living in NYC.  So far, I've only accomplished the latter.  While in high school in New Orleans, I had a school project where I had to interview someone who has influence on society.  Through lots of letter-writing, I eventually got a call from Craig Peralta telling me Ellen DeGeneres would be giving me a call within the next two hours to do the interview over the phone.  I thought I couldn't idolize you more, but to call a random high school kid to help her with a project made you the coolest person ever to walk the earth.  It was an incredible experience that I cherish to this day.  My love for NYC stems from my love for theatre.  I started singing in the crib and still hope to one day "make it" on Broadway.  In the meantime, I've really loved exploring all of the amazing things this city has to offer.  I've gone to football, baseball, and basketball games; concerts, zoos, street fairs.  I play softball in the Broadway Show League.  NYC provides something for literally everyone -- you just need to know where to look for it.Thank you so much for this opportunity and I so hope to see you soon!(Disclaimer: The music used in this video is public domain.)
