  1. I love empire i learned all the songs in one day. The one person i can relate to is Jamal i can relate to jamal because I’m very talented but im afarid to show my skills i am very complicated . I know i can work my ass off if i choose to but im not ready . My poetry i don’t show i don’t let nobody know that i can sing. I don’t wanna be afraid no more every one say i can’t sing or im never going to make it . Listening to good enough and tell the truth really do expires me because i know i do have a closest and im ready to come out i wanna be famous . If nobody believe in me then i gotta believe in myself just like no apologies said. The closer that you get they try to hold you back close mouths don’t get fed noooo that is one of my favorite lines i love that .

  2. Hi my name is Tania, I could seat here and go on about my reasons for wanting to be on the show and be an extra for this show. So I’m just going to keep it simple and if you would like to know more you can always email me. I have always said you have to start small to get where you want to be, and by being an extra in this show I feel like that can open a whole New chapter for my daughter and I after all that is all a mom wants in this world, to keep your daughter feeling proud and happy to have a mom that can reach her goals!

  3. I will be a great addition To the cast because I am very outgoing and I can be shy a first but when I warm up I am a joy to be around.. I am smart and dedicated…I go after what I want.

  4. I love this show a lot already & the more I see it, it gets intense. I was saying to myself “I’m gonna be on this show” If you choice me to be on the show as more than an extra, my dreams of being on tv will come true. And its not all about the money & and. It’s about me proving everyone who doubted me wrong & opening up so many doors in my life. I really hope you choose me because I have the look, spunk, & personality. I wanna get a chance to show myself that I can do it & I wanna make my family proud because they believe that I can be on tv.
