"You can't redefine your life and yourself over night"

About the author

My name is Emily, and I am a rising 7th grader at Holman Middle School. Our English teacher assigned us a project to create an interactive and informational website based on an inspiring person. I chose Christina Aguilera because I think she is a great person, with a great voice and is very influential. I do watch the show the Voice and I noticed that she was a very nice person and very helpful. I think that she should definitely be recognized.

christina's early life

Singer-Songwriter Christina Aguilera, born on December 18, 1980 in Staten Island, New York. As a child she constantly suffered through the hands of her violent father. Although she doesn't like to talk about it she recently finally opened up about it. She admitted that her Army Sergeant father, definitely made life a challenge at the Aguilera home. She began to learn that music was a good escape for her from her fathers beatings. She witnessed a lot of unpleasant things growing up and never really felt safe. "Feeling unsafe and powerless in your own home is the worst feeling in the world. She began to turn to singing as an outlet to get away from the drama at her home. Most of her pain from home became to verge into her music. Finally her mom took responsibility and moved with Christina. Although Christina was put through things she shouldn't of had to go through, she did. Throughout this experience, there was one and only good thing that came out of it. This is where her singing career began.

Here is a picture of Christina as a young girl.

Christina Aguilera, WHat were the positive and negative effects of her abuse?

Abuse, a bad thing right? Yes it is a bad thing but in this case it had one and only one positive effect. Because of the abuse at home Christina was forced to find something she could do to keep her occupied. Christina did manage to find a new hobby, and that hobby was music. When she started to use this as an outlet to get away from things her passion for music just grew more and more. We are asking ourselves, how was this a positive effect? If she hadn't found this outlet she would have never been famous here today. Although this experience was tremendously tragic, she was able to begin to take flight in her career.

This is a picture of Christina while singing at one of her concerts.
