Hi, my name is Nicole DiGiovanni. I'm 14 years old, I go to Brick Township High School and I am a HUGE One Direction fan! I've been a fan since the start. I love One Direction so much.
On July 5, 2013 I attended One Directions Take Me Home Tour. It was one of the best nights of my life. I went to NYC to the Good Morning America show and I slept out on the street of Central Park all night to see them perform live. I also went to NYC to Madame Tussaud's and took many selfies with "One Direction."I saw This Is Us three days early in NYC. And also many times in theaters. I am the un luckiest person in the world, every contest I enter I never win. It would mean the world to me to win this contest. It's my dream to go to there concert and see them perform. From Up All Night to Midnight Memories I memorized every single word to each and every song. I even memorized each song they sang for there X-factor auditions. Words can not explain how much money, time, and tears I've spent on these boys. I will love them for ever and ever no matter how old I get.
I, Denise Kelly, entered this contest for my daughter Cheyenne. She is 17 and the biggest One Direction fan, I can promise you that! She has been a fanatic ever since she saw them on X Factor in 2010. She celebrates every single one of their birthdays, the day they formed, the release dates of all their songs, their albums, the ‘This Is Us’ movie; which I bought but she can’t have it until Christmas, and their perfume. She can tell you who is singing in any given song that is playing. She even informs me when I am confused. She has her own One Direction fan page on Instagram with 1574 followers, and a fan blog that she writes fan fiction for. Her Twitter feed is all One Direction. She has photos of them. And even favorites and retweets all of their tweets. They are the only ones she follows. Anything One Direction related she sees in a store, she has to have. Pillows, blankets, magazines, stickers, books, music, accessories; you name it she has it! Her room is covered from floor to ceiling in the boys of One Direction. She knows the words to every single song. Every time a song comes on the radio, she will blast it and sing along. Not that she is very good. I should know, I have to listen to her.
My daughter has been asking for tickets to see her five favorite boys for every birthday, Christmas, Easter, and every other day of the week since the X Factor. She has even converted some of us into Directioners. Me in particular, I’m a Louis girl. But if you ask her who her favorite is, she will say, “You can’t just pick one. They’re all my favorite." She has even made her 4-year-old niece into a Directioner. She follows her around singing “What Makes You Beautiful” all day long, and they dance and sing. She even requested a One Direction cake for her birthday. Whenever Cheyenne is asked what she wants for any holiday, she will say only one thing, “Tickets to see my husbands”. I have tried so hard and entered every contest I could, but good luck was never in our favor. She has never seen them other than through the screen of the television, her laptop, or her phone. I would love so much for her dream to come true. Cheyenne deserves these tickets! If we had the money she would’ve been to one a 100 times by now, but unfortunately she has never been to a single one.
Although Sophia is 7 years old, she is an old soul. To know her is to love her. From the first time she heard One Direction on the radio, she told her mom and dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles and anyone who would listen that she would love to see them live in concert.
Although the family has tried to win and tried to purchase tickets we have all been unsuccessful. She has even had her Mom stand with 200 teenagers at a mall to compete in a trivia contest to win tickets, but unfortunately was once again unsuccessful.
Sophia deserves to win because she works very hard at school going to tutoring three days a week for dyslexia; she plays the piano and cheerleads. She loves music and I, her Aunt Barb Olsen, would love the opportunity to win her these tickets. When Sophia heard the Point’s contest she flipped, so excited everyday to show 94.3 her love for One Direction.
Amazing, Loveable, Talented. These are three words that describe the biggest boy band in the world, One Direction. Their music is amanzing and every song inspires me, Hailey Ruderman. When I first found out about them in 2011, I bought "Up All Night" and listened to it for a month straight! I've stayed up until midnight to buy their other albums, Take Me Home andMidnight Memories. I love One Direction because they are great role models, too.
I have seen their movie, "This Is Us" and every TV appearance. I've been to their pop-up store in New York. I am the biggest fan but I have NOT been to a concert! Please make my dream come true! Please vote for me so I can be one of the happiest One Direction fans out there!
I am Heather Yannich and I believe I should win the One Direction contest on The Point because to me these five boys: Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik are not just a "boy band," they are so much more! They are an inspiration to me musically and emotionally.
One Direction’s music is extremely catchy, even if you happen not to be a fan of theirs, you will catch yourself humming or singing to their songs! The band has a unique sound that does not portray a typical "boy band" sound. As pursuers of their own dreams, they preach and showcase the idea to chase your own dreams. All five boys have done this when they auditioned for the X-Factor three years ago. I am doing the same with my music, chasing my dreams because that's what I am passionate for. Since I was a little girl I have always had the ability to carry a tune and from then on I have kept working hard to get better. Currently I do song covers all the time and upload them via Soundcloud. One Direction has inspired me to consider trying out for the X-Factor here in the United States! They have made me believe in my music and myself. I don't think I would be doing what I'm doing today if I didn’t have their inspiration to follow.
I never thought in a million years that it would be so difficult to purchase tickets for their concert! I had two lab tops and two phones logged on to Ticketmaster and nothing would load! The fact that I have this opportunity to win tickets is unimaginable! It would true be a dream come true if I was able to see my favorite band in concert!
