Youth Voices: Featuring original work written by students
By Disha Patel
Justin Drew Bieber, born on March 1, 1994, is a Canadian pop musician, actor and singer/songwriter. All this fame didn’t come easy for 19-year-old Bieber growing up with a single mom. An American talent manager Scooter Braun came across Bieber’s videos on YouTube in 2008 and is now his manager.
Today Bieber is one of most well-known and successful people ever. Even though he’s only 19, he has accomplished extraordinary things at a young age. Bieber is involved in 14 different charities and is constantly helping others. He donates his time and money to different charities everywhere. One of the charities he helps is Make a Wish, which grants wishes to terminally ill children. Bieber holds the current record for granting the most wishes, 200 wishes!
With a global fan base of “Beliebers” and more than 40 million followers on Twitter, he was named the third-most powerful celebrity in the world by Forbes magazine in 2012. Fame doesn’t come easy for Bieber, constantly dealing with criticism and people trying to bring him down.
Recently, my cousin Shital and I watched his new movie “Justin Bieber’s Believe,” which was an unbelievably amazing movie. It made $1.25 million on its opening day, Christmas. In the movie, it showed the struggles Bieber faces every day. In the movie, Bieber said, “Out there are millions of people waiting to see you fall”. He teaches people everywhere never to give up and to believe. Bieber is an inspiration to millions of people around the world. His music helps people through hard times. Bieber is an idol for millions of people everywhere, including me.
