TEEN ESSAY: Teacher to the stars

In the midst of the studio buzz, Renee Bunn is in a heated argument with the movie director. The director angrily argues that he needs his new teenage star for an important shoot, but Bunn argues for something even more important: A history lesson on Napoleonic history<NO1>Campaign<NO>.

Meeting a famous actress or popular singer is a secret (or not-so-secret) dream of millions of people. Most, unfortunately, will not meet this dreamy goal, aside from a hurried autograph signing or a glimpse of the star at an awards show. However, Bunn has ambitions that go beyond simply seeing celebrities: She wants to educate them.

Bunn's inspiration for her future job ambition stems from the fact that her own aunt works in Los Angeles and has taught stars, such as Selena Gomez.

"Every day when Selena would go to film her show, she would be with my aunt," said Bunn.

Her aunt teaches the actors "whenever they can squeeze it in," Bunn explains. "It's not even a big deal for her to be with celebrities."

Bunn didn't always want to work with actors in studios. Originally, her career goal leaned toward psychology.

"I spent a lot of time contemplating what to do," said Bunn.

As she learned more of what her aunt did, and after she joined her on studio visits, Bunn's interest in the job increased more and more.

<NO>The independence and traveling required for the job of a studio teacher are the two main sources of attraction for Bunn.
