Compositora y cantante tengo unas canciones que yo compuse si les interesa

1. Because of their hard work. If you look closer, BTS's songs are just different from others. All of the members even participate to made an album. Their lyrics are so relateable that makes people can feel it. Also the performance are so amazing, their singing, dancing and face expression make the audience drop their jaws. Also their staff are so great, by just look at them, we can feel how care are the staffs to the artists. And of course, because of their love to their fans, ARMY. 2. The story of the movie is kind of unique. The plot in the movie is unpredictable, and the feel when watching the movie is thrilling. 3. A lot of people are not accept themselves. Always comparing to others, hate themselves, disappoint, feel not enough, and that makes they want to end their live. I just want people to know how live valueable live is. Think about the smallest thing. For example, the sun is waiting for you tomorrow, the wind, your bed is waiting for you to sleep, don't forget about ramen you have at home. I want people to understand even the smallest thing that brings you happiness is important. Try to thank yourself, maybe by saying "You've work hard. For my future self, maybe now i'm a bit disappointing, but i'll fix it. For now,, maybe i'm not the one who i want to be, but i'll do my best to become someone who i want to be." It's an amazing thing that you are still here. Even if it's hard, it'll not going through the end unless you end it. When you feel like you want to die so badly, try to think the same way, but to alive. Live your live. Less

I am a natural born Go getter, investigating detective who is not a word of mouth person but a person who is where the action is going! If something is going on I’m there so I don’t have any problem with getting the scoop especially when I’m there for the scoop! My biggest challenge, and probably the most difficult is going to be the ability to answer every request. Every question thats resqusted is going to be answered in the short period of time given the steps that I take as far as editing I write down all the facts and instead of eliminating facts I kind of bundle it up to get to the point whatever’s left in the word mix is left!
