Tropfest short film festival in Sydney - go Alyssa!!

Greetings all,
Well seeing my cousin Alyssa is so incredibly busy, modest & fabulous, i had to find out on the news tonight - in a channel 10 interview with Angela Bishop - that she is finalist in Tropfest tonight!!  She's one of only two female directors in the finals & has her own production company too (Pickled Films).  Her short film is a comedy which stars Pia Miranda, who i think everyone in Australia adores, she's so gorgeous, funny & sweet.
Now Alyssa is eerily similar to our middle daughter with the same colouring, personality & features (nose, eyes, long limbs, athletics) only they're born 20 years apart.  Alyssa's mummy is a twin, our daughter is a twin, they're both super smart, she's a wonderful role model for our children . . . Alyssa went through school on academic scholorships, she was school captain & dux, got honours in her UTS Communications degree - most sort after degree in the country, while tripping to Hollywood for movies & winning international acting scholorships plus the coveted job as a Jan Logan Jewellery model!!  Not to mention she's rather beautiful too!!  We saw her a Christmas lunch & i was like a 5y.o. asking a million questions about Sam Worthington, Holly Valance etc & she's like "here are some pictures of them in my phone" & i was giggling & totally star struck.  To some, that world is normal, it's work . . . not to this housewife!!  Ah, good luck gorgeous girl!!

It was hard to find a picture of our girl NOT smiling or posing!!  Couldn't find any images of Alyssa with her, which would have been a much better comparison.  Check out more here . . . love Posie
