One of Our Own!

 

Dear Editor,

Carmen Flood, who lives on Bonnell Drive, has been accepted to New York University for a summer acting program and is reaching out to friends to help her attain her goal. This is one of the kids in our neighborhood!!!

I have watched her grow up since she was a little one. I've seen her on rare occasions when she's running (she's a runner) and when she was younger, she'd practice soccer at Bonnell Park (also a soccer player).

Most of us have never met her, probably because she is one busy student. At school, she excels in her studies, in sports and in music (she plays the clarinet). She is a fluid and beautiful Belly Dancer with Melanie Kareem Belly Dancers here in Topanga! And now she will excel as an actress, as she's one of 16 selected for the summer acting program at NYU!

I know money is tight for many of us, but if you can support one of our kids in our neighborhood with a little donation, that would be marvelous for Carmen!

Someday when we see Carmen onstage or on the screen, we'll be tickled to know that we were among the first to help one of our neighborhood kids follow her dream.
