2013 has been a year full of massive highs and epic lows but despite it all, I’ve come out of it stronger. I met some of the most incredible people this year, a lot of whom I met in LA.
LA was one of the most surreal experiences I’ve ever had. I got to sing at the Grammy’s pre-show party, on the rooftop of the iconic Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. It was magical and the whole trip was a dream come true thanks to the amazing people I met and friends I made. Dominic, Curt, Annie, Nicole, Chase, Matt, Travis, Terry, Shawna….everyone made my holiday unforgettable. It was a pleasure spending time with you guys and getting to know you. You each inspire me so much to live my dreams.
I started a new non profit organisation with my best friend, and we put on a concert in one of London’s most prestigious venues. We met some incredibly talented people who now are very dear friends. With that company, we have also started writing our musical, Intesa, which is a dream come true as well. We’ll work more on this is 2014, but I’m so proud of this show and the message it’s going to send to people. Then the Glee convention was a big high for me. I finally got to perform to my mentor and Telly Leung (broadway star) told me I should be on Broadway right now, which was just mind blowing. Had incredible feedback from some big inspirations of mine at G3 so that was amazing!
Tanja and I wrote, produced and starred in our own web series which we’d wanted to do for a while. It was a unforgettable feeling, when people were watching our show and saying how much they enjoyed our writing. I’m so proud of us!
I filmed a music video for my first original song, which was so much fun! To hear people singing to my song was just crazy! I got to take my beautiful niece to France and have a lovely holiday with her and my mum and brother. I released a song on itunes, that appeared in a successful web series starring Curt Mega, Eric Carroll, Matt Zimmerman, Chase Edmonsdon and Annie Sewell. I discovered my love of Batman, Froyo and ‘In and Out’ burgers (thanks Chase and Matt).
Other memorable moments: I had the best Christmas in a long time. My Superhouse girls came to Mama and Papa Cox’s house and we had a Swedish Christmas, and it was perfect! Went to the Harry Potter studios with my parents and brother and it was one of the most magical days this year! Going to Wales with Tanja and Sam and Oscar. Seeing Spamalot dressed as knights. Seeing Book of Mormon on the opening night in London. Yes there have been very low points this year, but I think the high points have out weighed them massively. I’m truly very blessed and I love every single one of you who has made 2013 so memorable. Thank you.
