What Makes August So Special
After stealing the show on ‘Girl Meets World’, we can easily denote that everything about this boy is special. Let alone his viewers, even the cast and director on the Disney set can’t get enough of him! What spontaneously attracts us to him is his innocent eyes and bright smile. The light curls that fall on his forehead make him almost irresistible. August truly embodies sincerity and honesty. His hard work and willingness to learn helps him get better with each passing day. He loves to explore, learn, and is always optimistic. He says that he wants to travel and explore the world. In fact, as a student too he is one of the brightest boys in his class.
With a drive to learn, August has so many hobbies and talents. He is not only a born actor but a musician as well; he can play the piano and loves singing. He gets his feet tapping to almost everything, and is a great dancer too. When it comes to sports his favorite is undoubtedly baseball. In school his favorite subjects are Science, Geography and Astronomy. He once mentioned in an interview that if he hadn’t been an actor he would be a scientist, as experiments intrigue him. He loves spending time with both his siblings and planning picnics with his parents. He even wants to become a writer and probably write his first book on science experiments.
Behind The Curtains
August was born in the month of August in 2007 in California. His mother named him August because she thought the name was “cool”and not because of his birth month as many think. He has an elder sister Michele who adores her brother. He also has a younger brother, Ocean, who is also very popular. August is currently studying in grade 5 though he should be in grade 4; he had to repeat a year in kindergarten because he changed his school that year and later he skipped second grade. He is the most intelligent boy of his grade and is an active participant in class. What is most interesting to note is that he actually began reading and writing at the age of two. His best friend is McKenna Grace. However, it is sad to mention that he suffers from a chronic food allergy. He is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, coconut and sesame. He juggles shooting and homework, and presently doesn’t have any other project at hand, since most of his time is spent on the sets of ‘Girl Meets World.’ He loves working on the show as the cast is like a real family to him. Predicting his future isn’t difficult as his current success will definitely pave the way to a prosperous one.
August and his brother Ocean share the same birthday, but born five years apart.
