    Hiya, my name is Makeda McAlister Downes. I am 15 years old (half English/half Trinidadian & Tobagonian) and I’m from South West England, by the coast. As I said I’m 15. I’m always mistaken for 17, not sure why? I am very very confident. I am an aspiring forensic psychologist which is why I found American Horror Story so amazing; looking into the minds of killers and people’s reactions to situations. I’m bronze skinned, 5’2, slim, typical hourglass figure, size 6/8 clothes, size 5 feet, mid length brown ringlets, brown eyes, heart shaped face and bangs. In primary school I was leading role for every school play so I have experience in acting. However, my premise is singing. I write and cover songs and have performed at many festivals, and had my music aired on radio. But ultimately, I would love to be a part of or help in any way possible. I think this would be a great experience for me! I think I’d be a good candidate for an acting role?
