Movie “ALONE” gets recognition from Locals

Juana Munoz, fifteen year old writer, currently attends Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, TX.  Juana joined “Acting For  A Greater Cause”, November 2014 and has been an active member since.  Juana came to the class a very shy and reserved young lady.  When ask about acting she wasn’t sure what exactly she wanted to do.  Juana got her first opportunity in acting when she landed a role in the 2015 Stage Play, “Don’t Bully ME!” where she played the role of a bully.

The Movie “ALONE” was formed  when Juana had a class assignment where she wrote about her best-friend Nayeli Avelar’s bullying encounter.  After reading the assignment, Mrs. Greenwood, the Director ask for more.  She then discussed the incident more with Nayeli and she came with the movie “ALONE”.

Playing the role of a bully was extremely hard as I am a naturally nice person.  But I like the challenge it gave me to be someone I wasn’t.
