Meet the Performers

Jackeline

As a child I always wanted to be a Disney princess. My parents bought me numerous costumes when I was little and I would reenact scenes along with the movies. Being the Indian princess brought that part of my childhood back. It reminded me of how much I love bringing characters to life and making people especially children happy. From babysitting, volunteering at church and classrooms, I am always around children. I am currently studying child psychology, and after understanding more about children, I want to be able to bring happiness to those who are going through hard times. If everyone believed in happiness and magic like children, the world would be a better place.
