    I auditioned for many Nickelodeon shows before and this is my 3rd audition because I really want to be a voice over actor or an actor on each nickelodeon show. My name is April Nicole Whitfield and I am African American. I have dark brown eyes and dark brown hair.

    My personality is happy and shy. I like to laugh a lot and to do a voice over for little kid. I may seem a little old for nick junior but I wouldn’t mind to do a voice over.

    If I had a choice by Nickelodeon to audition for only one show, i would pick Victorious because that’s my number one show because Icarly is gone now. It used to be my favorite but now they are done with the show.

    I think I should win the audition mostly for Victorious first and Nick Junior second because I’ve not only was inspired but always pretended I was acting since I was 7 years old with other people.

    Nickelodeon would change my life by letting me audition and meeting the Nickelodeon stars. If I was told that i’m good enough for the audition and the voice over. I am really far from Hollywood, California so i’m thinking about flying there. I would be so touched and happy to get chosen to fly to California, Hollywood and to at least meet the stars of Victorious. I’m going to be there on Nickelodeon.

    sincerely: April N. Whitfield
