Taylor Connect

GirlNamedSwift

My name is Giovanna and I'm fifteen years old. My mom recently discovered that she has breast cancer and she always gave me support about being a Taylor Swift fan. One day, when I was sitting next to her she said to me: "If you really wanna meet this girl, Taylor Swift, you have to go for it and work hard to get what you want. You never gonna meet her if you don't do anything to make your dream come true. You know, send e-mails, letters, make videos... Do something!" Well, that's why I'm here. I have no idea if someone is going to read this but I felt like I had to follow my mom's advice. I'll tell you a bit of my story. On 2008 I started to be addicted to Taylor and listen to her songs non-stop (I still do that). Nowadays I have all of her albums and lots of magazines that she appears on the cover. On my 2010 vacation I started begging my parents to go to one of her concerts of the "Speak Now World Tour". I wanted it so badly but I didn't think they would really listen to me. Hopefully, they did. On January 22th, 2011, they said I was going to her concert in London! I couldn't believe that. And I still can't believe that on March 30th I was at her concert with my mom, watching her singing live and breathing the same air as her. It appear just like a dream to me, I mean, it couldn't be real! When she walked trough the audience I stretched my arm as far as I could and TOUCHED HER HAND! Me, a Brazilian girl, had left Brazil just to see Taylor, and that was the best gift I've ever received. The best night of my entire life. I made a T-shirt and 5 sparkly signs but sadly I didn't get T-party tickets and I left London crying 'cause I travelled so far away from my country and I didn't get to meet her. My main dream, just like all the other "swifties", is to hug her tight and tell her how much she means to me. One hug only and my life would be complete. I want to tell her personally that she's my hero, my role model. She is such an inspiration to me, not just her music, but every little thing she does. She turned into sort of a therapy to me. On the most difficult moments in my life, without even knowing, she took me headway the right thing to do. My mom and my dad always supported my love to Taylor 'cause they believe she's such a role model to follow by. They're glad my idol is such a good girl and they're always saying she's an amazing singer. Me and my mom start crying every time we see a documentary and start running and screaming around the house when she wins an award. It's funny how my friends say they remember me when they listen to a Taylor Swift song. And it's also amazing how she changed my life completely. Since I turned into a fan of her I began to improve my English, just in case I got the chance to meet her one day (I even passed on a Cambridge Exam), I felt the need to learn how to play the guitar, sing better and follow her footsteps. I bet I felt the same way as hers when I convinced my parents to go to her concert in London just like the way she felt when she convinced her parents to move to Nashville. It's incredible how I feel like we're somehow connected. Since I was little I used to sing songs of movies like The Sound Of Music, Titanic and Disney movies in general. My parents were always concerned with me 'cause I couldn't concentrate in school... I was always writing poetry and little songs on my notebooks. The teachers used to call my attention because of that and every adult would call them "real deep and mature for my age". My father has always enjoyed country music and I kind of grown up listening to this musical genre. Then I’d become a victim of growing up and… well, I didn't turn into the popular girl at school, actually I was the opposite. That's because I rather stay at my grandparent’s house dancing, drawing and writing things. I started suffering bullying at the age of 9 because I didn't know how to play sports, all the girls of my class were always laughing at me and I was ALWAYS the last chosen on the team. They would not let me sit at their table at lunch time and that’s why I started to hate break times. I was alone most of the time. They also liked to make fun of my last name, and I just don't know why. I remember I used to come home crying almost every day because of that. I know exactly what she meant with “I don’t know who I’m gonna talk to now at school”. This was continuous and just ended when I moved to another state, at the age of 12, with my mother and father because of my father's job. I guess that's why I relate so much with Taylor, I think our stories are pretty similar. I'm truly obsessed to Taylor and she means everything to me. My friends and parents are all sick and tired of me talking about her almost all the time. I'm like, a-l-w-a-y-s singing her songs. Everywhere. In the car, in the shower, at school... and when I say everywhere, I mean every single place I walk in. I think that's because I only listen to her songs. I guarantee my iPod is 100% Taylor and I like to call it a "Tay-Pod". My friends criticize me for it but the truth is I can live my entire life listening just Taylor Swift songs. I'm known at my school as "The girl who loves Taylor Swift" and you might find me wearing a thirteen in my hand. I keep all of my Taylor stuff in a box, like a treasure. My fifteen years old party was all inspired in her. And here I am, writing this HUGE letter, hoping that someday I'll finally have the chance to say that "I knew from the first note played I'd be breaking all my rules to see you" just like the "Superstar" lyrics. I would do anything to meet her, even wear a ridiculously warm cat costume and dance all day long in a summer day. I could travel to the other side of the world just to see her. This year, on September 13th I went to her concert (just for a few lucky fans) in Rio, Brazil. It was flawless and I’m glad I was lucky enough to get tickets, but once again I didn’t get to meet her. Anyway, I’ll never lose hope on meeting her, like, ever. I do not know how, where or when, but I know I'll never give up and I know that, someday, I will the lucky enough and my dream will come true. Just one more thing I want to say to T-Swizzle: Taylor, all those other fans, well, they're beautiful, but would they write this letter for you? HAHA...

P.S.: If you read this whole thing, thank you. This was ridiculously long and you probably have other stuff you could've done in these last minutes. So thank you, once again.
