My name is Yusuf Khan. I am 12 years old. I have one older brother and one twin sister. And I have a huge passion for acting. I first got the inspiration when I was the assistant stage manager last year in 6th grade. There was a winter musical called "Hello Dolly" but I figured that I don't like to sing or dance, but I like acting. So then to get experience I signed up for stage crew, but then I also did an application for being the assistant stage manager and I got accepted! Throughout the rehearsals I figured that I really wanted to act and my friend told me that there is a spring play and it is a comedy, not a musical. So when that came I auditioned for the play "10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse." I got the role as one of the survivors. Throughout the rehearsals I thought it was fun, I made a lot of new friends, and it was just a great experience for me. Before all this, back in 5th grade, I did a different audition, but it was for Hollywood. I auditioned and actually got accepted. They told me to come to Hollywood, but at that time I had school and my parents couldn't take me there during school. They told me to start low with the school plays. And now I have the opportunity to do this. In 7th grade, which is right now, the winter musical starts after Thanksgiving and I will probably act in it. Spring play is in a long time. So I will worry about that later. Right now I am an actor for a new event called "Stage Fright" in my school, and it is a haunted maze that the audience goes through on stage. The first rehearsal for that was yesterday. I think that will be a fun experience as well! This is just a little bit about me and why I want to be an actor.
I have acted in a stage show in my middle school called "10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse." Currently I am acting in a stage event called "Stage Fright."
