My name is Arielle, and this is my Bieber experience. “Never Say Never”, that is Justin’s motto, and I’ve recently learned the meaning of the phrase, when my prayers were answered, on November 29, 2012. A fan is somebody who supports someone or something, and enjoys what they do. However a Belieber is a whole other level of a fanbase. We, Beliebers legit know his every move, we aren’t just fans, we have a certain dedication to Justin, and will not fail to oblige to our duty. I have been a supporter of the Biebs for close to 4 years and have always been dreaming of going to one of his concerts, but since I live in NYC, they were all sold out by the time I would get to my computer to buy them. I have always been harassing my parents for Bieber tickets, since 2010, and finally my Dad agreed to buy some for me. The first night the Believe tour tickets went on sale, I waited by my computer and my Dad bought me floor seats to Justin’s Believe Concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn . Since they were Justin Bieber tickets, they were really expensive and my Dad said that they would count as my Hanukkah present for all 8 nights. I honestly couldn’t care less because my dream had come true, and I was going on November 12 to see my idol. As we got to the concert, we were really close, in the 11th row, but these obnoxious girls were holding up their signs, so I was unable to see Justin. As Justin began to sing Love Me Like You Do, my favorite song off the album, they began to lower their signs, and I could see my baby! The concert was great, and I couldn’t have asked for a better performance. The next week, my dad asked me if I had any tests, on November 30th, and I asked “Why?”, and he said, “Ask Mommy.” I did, and my mom told me that my dad’s friend was actually Kenny Hamilton’s dentist, and that I would be able to attend Justin’s meet and greet, followed by the concert at MSG, on Thursday, November 29, with his kids! The second I heard this news, my eyes filled with tears, and I was the happiest girl in the world. I was told by my parents that I had to keep this a secret for the next week until the actual thing, because they didn’t want me to come upon as bragging to anyone, so I did this, as hard as it was. My brothers also didn’t know, so I couldn’t talk about it in the house either. The next week felt like forever, but finally November 29, had come. I had to leave school early, so that I could attend the meet and greet, but of course I didn’t mind. We arrived at MSG, and stood in line for close to an hour. We then went up the stairs to the meet and greet line to wait. 20 minutes of waiting in the line, Dan Kanter walks by, followed by security guards, and I guess everyone was distracted by all of the chaos and didn’t realize besides me. I yelled, “OMG, it’s Dan Kanter.” We then locked eyes and he said Hi to me. It was actually amazing. Then about a half an hour later, Scooter walks by wearing a baseball cap and a hoodie trying to cover his face so that nobody would realize, but that clearly didn’t work because he was chased by a mob of beliebers, including me. The security guards yelled at us, and told us that we had to go back to our spots in line, or else we wouldn’t be able to meet Justin. Of course, everyone was back in line in an instant. It felt like forever until it was finally our turn to meet my idol, my everything, the one and only, Justin Bieber. It was almost our turn in line, and the lady in charge said that we weren’t allowed to get any autographs or take any personal pictures. I could see Justin now, his skin was perfectly flawless, and I have never seen anything as beautiful as him in my life. He was also coincidentally wearing the same Varsity Jacket as I was, which was unbelievable and amazing . We were told to go take a picture with him, but there my friend (who wasn’t even a belieber) was next to him. This was my only chance to meet him, and I couldn’t risk not being next to him in the picture. So I did what I thought was necessary, and softly nudged my friend, so that I could be next to him. She totally understood, and wasn’t upset about it. After we had taken the picture I spilled to him my feelings and how much he meant to me, and at the last second requested a hug, which he gave to me . We were then escorted out of the small room, and by then I was bawling my eyes out. It was actually the greatest moment of my life, and I wouldn’t change anything. As we were walking out, we spotted Kenny and my friends told him that their dad was his dentist, he suddenly realized who we were and gave us all hugs, he apologized for not being able to take pictures because the security guards were really aggressive about it, but then agreed to sign our phone cases , which we were all thrilled about. The concert was amazing, and I even enjoyed it more than the one at Barclays Center. My dream has come true, and I will thank God for what he has granted me with, every day of my life. I met my idol, and everything I have been dreaming of since 2010, has happened. I will always remain a belieber, and will always look back to this moment in my life, for as long as I live. Thank you Justin for always being there for us Beliebers, and for telling us to always live our dream. I have lived my dream, and I hope this story gives you all hope. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you will never meet Justin, and that you will never be able to live your dream, because I did, and you can too. #NeverSayNever
