Nickelodeon actress Miranda Cosgrove stepped out last night to attend the 22nd Annual Beat The Odds Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California. Looking pretty in black ruffled pants and a sequined top, Miranda was all smiles before heading into the event.
Miranda took a break from her busy schedule to attend the event, having just wrapped her hit television series iCarly before heading off to college.
In a recent interview, Miranada chatted about going to college:
“I have an essay due. I’ll be doing homework during Thanksgiving break,” Miranda said.
The 19-year-old admitted that she feels perfectly at home while at the University of Southern California, where she is just another teen in school.
“People come up to me and introduce themselves. My best friends are people who came up to me in class. I guess I’m not the kind of person who goes up and introduces herself, so it’s been the best thing ever. Sometimes I forget that I’ve been on the show, because everyone is just trying to get to class and get their work done.” She said.
“This is my first semester. I’m getting in the groove and getting used to it and trying to figure college out,” she says. “I definitely want to act. That’s why I want to major in film. The most important thing is to find a good story. It’s hard when you’re coming from a TV show. I’m hoping to find something that’s right. It’s hard when you’re trying to do something different but not lose the people who know you. I wouldn’t want to rush and do something that wasn’t right. I’m just focusing on school.”
