 I was born into a Scientology family. My mom was in the Sea Org when she was 12, but shortly after  blew. She then joined staff at Burbank mission where she met my dad, they married, and that’s how Icame around. I do recall hanging around the Big Blue building (AOLA) when I was between 2-5 yearsold. My parents were on services there, and my sister and I would run around the complex. Even thenthey would put us to work as “volunteers” - cleaning, doing filing, etc.When I was 5 yrs old, my parents, big sister and I moved from Burbank, CA to Palmdale which isabout an hour outside of LA. I don’t recall ANY Scientology for a while here. My parents were not oncourse for years, and instead we did a lot of traveling, camping, and family activities. This was themost pleasurable time in my life thus far. There was no worry, no stress, no hate and confusion, just theconstant love of my family and friends.When I was 12, we moved back to Los Angeles and my sister and I were sent to Delphi LA, aScientology school. I had a little brother who was only 2 yrs old then. I did a few courses during thistime at the local Foothill Mission. My parents would bribe me by saying I could skip Summer Schoolat Delphi if I promised to do a course at the mission during this time. I twinned with either my sister or  best friend, which made it fun.When I was 14, my sister dropped out of school and joined staff full time at CCHR. Shortly after, shewas recruited straight from there into the Sea Org at the HGB building in Hollywood.I also started getting interested in acting/singing at this time, and my best friend and I went and joinedKids on Stage for a Better World, which is one of Celebrity Center's outreach groups. It was made upof 20-50 kids who had various levels of skill in dance, singing and performing. I started taking singinglessons and getting lead solo parts in songs. We performed all over LA and at many Scientology eventssinging songs with good messages, including some Scientology songs as well. I was part of this groupuntil I was 16, when I joined the Sea Org.In the summer of 1998, I was not only practicing and performing at CC all the time, I was on coursedoing my Student Hat and Pro TRs. I didn’t finish my Pro TRs, so instead of going back to school after that summer, I went on course full time. This was the beginning of my recruitment process. I have toadmit I think I was pretty easy for the recruiters to get me to join. I signed my contract during my firstconversation with my recruiters, who were Shane and Cassie W, Jennifer G, and Dave P.Page 2 of 30
 
When I went home to tell my parents, they were both very disappointed. My mom wanted me to finishhigh school and finish the Pro TRs Course first, and my dad plain thought I would regret it. My dad isan amazing piano player and has been into music and in bands since I was born. He told me how hehad left his band and joined staff at the Mission when he was younger, and he later totally regretted it because his band got signed to a record label and became successful after he left. He knew I was passionate about singing and that I had enough talent to really make it if I continued pursuing it. Evenafter this talk from my parents, I was still determined to join the Sea Org and I took off to my boyfriend’s house and broke the news to him. He was devastated! We were truly inseparable and had plans to marry and have kids (yes, even at 16) and we were definitely each other’s first real love. Hewas bawling, but said that he had always been worried I would do this at some point because he knewwhat a good and nice person I was and how much I loved helping people. I said my last tearfulgoodbye to him.That night I was terrified and couldn’t sleep. Everything my parents told me were going through mymind like a broken record, I didn’t know who to believe. My recruiters told me I would be able to go toGold and sing, but my dad said I would regret giving up on my singing career? My recruiters told me Iwould be going up the Bridge for free, so why was my mom so worried about me finishing my ProTRs Course? My recruiters told me I’d be able to take Liberties (The day off) every two weeks if mystats were up AND I’d get three weeks of vacation time a year, so why did I have this cold gut feelingof my friends and loved ones never being seen again? By the time I woke up, and I had changed mymind as instinct told me I’d regret it.I went into CC to tell them that I had changed my mind and wanted to just continue on course. Mycourse supervisor routed me to Ethics to sort this out, and said I could not continue on course becausegoing back on my decision to join was out-ethics. I went down to ethics and was met by the ED CCInt, Dave P, who was pissed! He told my recruiter, Shane, to get me on the meter because it was onlyoverts and my reactive mind that would hold me back from doing something so good, and he wantedsomeone to give me a short confessional to “find out my crimes.” This obviously implies that if I don’t join, it only means I am a major criminal and MUST be hiding thing, and the ED CC Int figured if hecould intimidate me or scare me enough, I would change my mind.I reluctantly went in for an ethics interview (which is just a mini-confessional while you are hooked upto the e-meter).After the interview, I went downstairs to the recruitment office and told Dave and Shane that theinterview was great, but I still didn’t want to join the Sea Org. Dave got infuriated. He told Shane thatwhoever did my interview did not get me to confess to all of my sins because the end result of megetting a standard confessional would have meant me not having anymore unsaid sins holding me back from joining the Sea Org. Shane was ordered to get me on the meter with the Senior C/S (the mosthighly tech trained person in the entire building) and find out what I was still hiding. At this point, Ithought he had gone too far and felt like I was in some inescapable maze. However, I had to cooperate because I was supposed to be on course all day to finish my Pro Trs Course like my mother wanted, but I couldn’t continue on course because they sent me to Ethics for going back on my decision to jointhe Sea Org. I finally went back in for another confessional and afterwards went back to therecruitment office and said that I still did not want to join. Dave Petit literally lost it at this point.He took the papers from my interview which had all my “out-ethics” on it and went out into thehallway outside of the recruitment office where all the staff were walking to the galley for dinner. Hestarted yelling at me that the only reason I wasn’t joining the Sea Org is because I was too busy goingPage 3 of 30
