Vanessa Hudgens means the world to me, and I know many people use that term a lot, but I really mean it. She is such a true inspiration to me and I have been supporting her since 2004 when she starred in Thunderbirds. Since that day I have grown up looking up to Vanessa, and being inspired by everything she does and everything she’s become. Vanessa has become my role model, inspiration and idol, and I am still proud to say that to this day. She has inspired me to become who I am and I’m glad I have such an amazing person to look up to. I am a very self-conscious person and I don’t have much confidence when it comes to myself or others around me, but Vanessa continuously reminds me to love myself and to keep confident through her interviews and awareness of others, one of those moments includes the video she did for Brittany Snow’s ‘Love Is Louder’ campaign. I also feel like she has inspired me through her music, her movies, interviews, and through her basic life. Vanessa seems like the most down-to-earth person. I love her because she doesn’t let fame get to her head, and she won’t change for anyone… She has stayed true to herself, her friends, her family and her friends from day one, and that is one thing I’m completely moved by.
Vanessa’s music has become a part of my life. Her first album had an amazing vibe and I feel like I could connect to a lot of the songs that were on there, I can still sing along to every song, and know every word. I connected her songs to my life and grew and became more confident through them. Her second album, Identified was a lot different. I loved the variety of music she had and I loved the style she had given off. This album would always put a smile on my face, I would listen to this album almost every day and it would keep me in such a good mood. Thank you, Vanessa for 2 amazing albums. I was going through a tough time when these albums were out, and it kept going for around five years. These two albums kept me going. People may say that isn’t true, but I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Vanessa’s music and I mean that. They changed my life!
Another reason Vanessa means the world to me is because she’s never afraid to take a chance. I have been watching her movies from 2004 and she has managed to give me a wide range of different movies. Thunderbirds was amazing, this was when I noticed Vanessa and knew she would be an amazing star, this is when she became my rolemodel. Vanessa showed how much of an amazing actress she was in this movie, and I knew it was just going to be the beginning for her. Next came the High School Musical movies. These movies helped me so much. I never really felt like I fit in at school, and didn’t know what I wanted to do or who I wanted to become. People made me feel like I could only be classed as one person, and Vanessa’s character, as well as the movies their selves, made me become more confident to step out of my hiding place and to be who I truly wanted to be. Bandslam, Beastly, and Sucker Punch; three incredible movies. I loved watching these movies as they are all completely different. Vanessa showed her outstanding talents through these movies, and done something new for each one. Vanessa has showed me that it’s ok to try new things and it’s ok to experiment through your life. A message I would give myself from these movies, thanks to Vanessa, would be that trying something different is always a good thing, and if it doesn’t work out then you can use it as an experience to learn from.
Vanessa has been through a lot in her life, dealing with haters and people who were rude and disrespectful towards her. I’m amazed by how she can get through everything in her life and I’m inspired by her attitude towards her life. She is a very positive person and that keeps me going in life. Knowing my role model has a positive attitude makes me want to keep myself positive, and keep myself being me, no matter what happens, and I think that’s a huge thing for kids, teenagers, and even adults to know throughout their whole life.
Vanessa means a lot to me, I would cry if I meet her, and I would want to say so much to her. I’m such a dedicated fan and I will never change the way I feel about her. She makes me stronger each and every day, and I will support her decisions and choices regardless of whether anyone else does. I am that dedicated to her that I made up a name for her fans; Nessasaurs! I made this name up and it managed to get across to Vanessa fans everywhere, and even got to Vanessa herself!
I will support Vanessa forever, as much as I can. I have different social-networking sites dedicated to her, and will keep updating them, showing my support as much as possible. Through everything Vanessa has done for me, just by being her and doing what she loves, I want to give back as much as possible, which is why I will continue to love her forever.
I couldn’t put my love for Vanessa into words enough, she is amazing; my role model, idol, inspiration, and most of all my motivator. I love her so much and I cannot wait to see what she’s got in store for the future.
I love her for what she was, what she is and what she is going to become.
Basically, THANK YOU VANESSA. I will always be a Nessasaur.
Loads of love, Joanne x
