Born To Make Mistakes... Not To Fake Perfection...

My Moto

On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.

Meet Me Personally

Hi! Hows it going? My name is Carlos Alberto Mendez, or other wise known as Charlie. Welcome to my Smore! Anyways, let's get started. I'm a 15 year old Teen and a proud student of United High School, former GT student and always have been an A & B student. I have always been the quite one, and never looks for trouble. I live with my family in Laredo, TX. My family mean the most to me, they had always been there for me & work hard for what we have. Now that we are into family, I can explain my passion and where it originated from. My Grandfather, he was a guitarist for 5 years, yet he stopped playing and he passed down his passion to me. It's always been my destiny to follow in his footsteps and make him proud for what he has passed down. I love Guitar! It's been with me through thick and thin. Sometimes I feel... that music is the only way to express how I feel, and express myself to others. It's my dream to have a career and Masters in Guitar, and to show my Grandfather up there that I can do what I love. Playing at the age of 4 years, I quickly grew natural at it. By the age of 9, I was already beating people that have been playing for 20 Years! I am as well in the Mighty Longhorn Band! I love this band with all my heart and as a little child I have always been wanting to march with the band. My dream became a reality when I came in this band and revived a spot in this years show. Now I work hard for my spot & loving every moment of it.

My Hero

My hero is my Father. He is my hero because like guitar. He has always been there through the hard times and the good times. He has always been there for me whenever I need him most. He has never given up on me, and I have always looked up to him. I love my father because like me, he could take so much damaged and won’t stop going for what he wants. Like me, he doesn't see the word “give up” in his world. He thinks of it as if it doesn't exist. I always try to spend time with my father. He has always kept pushing me to the best of my abilities. I know I will never have another father like him. A father that loves me to death. A father that will put his own life at risk to save mine. A father that will die in my place. A father that will protect and love me till the day that he dies and even beyond that. Dad I love you! You’re my hero!!!


My Symbol

My symbol is a guitar. The reason for this is because Guitar is the best way to express myself . It helps me through the hard times and the great times.


My Future

I would love to and will become a personal Guitarist and raise a family with my loving wife and kids.

My Career (Passion)

My career or I should say my passion is Guitar. I love guitar with all my heart and it will always be a big part of my life and it has been a huge part of my life. Guitar has been there for me throughout the hard times and the good times. When my Tia past away not to long ago, I was going to stop playing guitar in loving memory of her. But my Tia wanted me to keep pursuing at what I love to do. So I kept going. I have taught my cousins, the three are brothers. I have taught them how to play for 5 years now.

They all look up to me and I treat them as if they were my brothers. First Alex, then Lalo, then Ricky. My baby cousin David 5 years old will soon join his other three other brothers. It warms my heart to make surprise visit to their house, walk into his room, and seeing him on the bed with the electric guitar saying " I want to be like you Carlos when I come to your age." d:') This is one of my guitars on the side photo on the right.

When I Was Little

When I was very young, I guess you could say that I would love to listen to music. There I was, since I was 5 years of age everyday locked up in my room just playing the guitar. I would never stop, I would eat in my room and everything just to play the guitar. 12 hours daily every day just in my room playing. Encouraged by my grandfather, I started my Music career and it has gotten me to where I am now. I had gone to Amparó Gutiérrez Elementary School. Started school when 4 years old and went into the G.T. Program in the 2nd Grade.
