"That was my dream," she says. "Nobody was going to stop me." There was just one problem: "I was super-untalented. But I thought I was the best."

Her parents didn’t tell her otherwise. "They allowed me to continue because I loved it. Thank goodness." Today, a whole lot of people she’s touched in her young life would say the same.

Thank goodness.
