Humans of Homestead: Hayley Rapaport
Hayley Rapaport

¨When I was nine, I was flown out to California to potentially be on a TV show. And they fly out I want to say 13 kids and they only take 10 kids. So obviously three kids have to go home because they don’t make the cut to be on the TV show. And they have you go all these auditions to get to California. And I went though 50 different auditions, like zoom calls, facetime calls, I had to make a video about myself like stuff like that. And I go to California and I do a test run there and then that night you get an email saying if you made it or not. And I was one of the three kids that didn’t make it, and I’m nine and I’m crushed. But looking back on it, I think it was a positive. I don’t think I was ready. So it was a defeat, I didn’t make, I didn’t get to do what I wanted to do, but I don’t regret that happening.¨
