You’re cordially invited to YSBnow’s second-annual prom cover shoot.
PROM SEASON: The time of year when you want to look your best.
But we think it’s more important to feel your best and be your best. And that’s why for our second-ever #YSBnowProm cover shoot, we wanted to share the incredible stories of eight young stars who would inspire you to do just that.
Over the past month, you’ve seen our exclusive features on Paris Berelc (Alexa & Katie), Meg Donnelly (Zombies), Jordyn Jones (Overnights), and Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad), and in the coming weeks, we’ll premiere our in-depth interviews with Marcus Scribner, Corey Fogelmanis, Carson Lueders, and Steffan Argus.
But right now, it’s time to present #YSBnowProm, Class of 2018!
PARIS BERELC (19) & STEFFAN ARGUS (19)
This pair, from Wisconsin and Illinois respectively, went from modeling in their midwest hometowns for brands like Kohl’s, to acting in critically-acclaimed series like Netflix’s Alexa & Katie and AwesomenessTV’s The Commute.
DANIELLA PERKINS (17) & MARCUS SCRIBNER (18)
These California natives discovered their love of acting at a very young age, studied their craft, and as teenagers, landed lead roles on groundbreaking television series. While Marcus’ show, black-ish, is a comedy, it tackles serious issues like police brutality, and on Knight Squad, Daniella Perkins plays the first multi-racial princess in Nickelodeon history.
MEG DONNELLY (17) & COREY FOGELMANIS (18)
Viewers may have first seen this duo in their respective Disney Channel roles, but Meg and Corey fell in love with theatre first, acting in local stage productions before being discovered by professional agents. Fans can catch Meg every Wednesday on ABC’s American Housewife, while Corey’s highly-anticipated movie, Ma, is out next year.
JORDYN JONES (18) & CARSON LUEDERS (16)
Fans affectionally call this real-life BFF pair “Barbie and Ken,” and after seeing their prom shots, you won’t disagree. Jordyn danced her way from Michigan to Hollywood, where she’s now acting and singing, while Carson’s crooning earned him millions of fans and most recently, his first RDMA nomination.
These eight young performers are walking and talking proof that anything is possible when you work hard, practice kindness, pursue your passions, and follow your dreams.
