Well, I’m assuming if you clicked on this it’s because you want to know a bit more about me (for whatever reason)! Sooooo I guess these are the details:
My name is Courtney Cunningham. I am 19 years young, a Soprano, a redhead, and a Gemini.
I like a lot of things. Disney Princesses, Harry Potter, cats, Broadway musicals, and mermaids are some notable obsessions. I’ve also been convinced I am the live persona of Princess Ariel since I was four years old… do NOT try to talk me out of this one. The Little Mermaid is the movie that started my singing; I learned ‘Part of Your World’ as a toddler, and I haven’t stopped singing since.
I’m basically married to music. To say that music and singing are my passions are understatements- they are beyond that.
I live in a boring little state and attend a small college with a prestigious Conservatory. I am working towards a B.M. in Vocal Performance with an emphasis in Musical Theatre and Opera (yes, I know the degree name is a mouthful), with a theatre minor. My plan to move to NYC once I’m graduated and fight tooth and nail for a chance at a successful performing career. I realize how difficult that is going to be, but I’m stubborn and I refuse to back down until my dreams are achieved, no matter how long it takes.
I’m in recovery for Anorexia Nervosa, which I have been struggling with since I was ten years old. It was at its worst when I was 13, but it took me up until my freshman year of college to wake up and decide to fully recover. I also have depression, anxiety, and a general lack of self worth… But I’m trying to change that.
Tumblr has allowed me to find many others who struggle with issues similar to mine, and I hope that I can help someone else as much as others have helped me. My ask box is always open if anyone should ever need some help or advice :)
College has given me many wonderful opportunities to turn my life around. I met some of the most beautiful people on this earth, and am a proud sister of Sigma Alpha Iota (Kappa Tau). Basically, I’ve turned college into a journey learning how become physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy, while learning how to be a badass performer at the same time. Let’s hope I can do it…
The road ahead of me may be long and difficult, but there’s no way I’m backing down. Someday I’m going to be the heroine of this story, and there is absolutely nothing that is going to stand in my way. Not even myself.
