Delaware may be a small state but it’s certainly full of talent. Three people with different career paths are all making moves beyond the borders of the First State.

One is Delaware resident Bria Evans who will head back the hit NBC show the “Voice” for another audition. The teen has made quite an impression after two successful auditions.

Also this week, University of Delaware student Delanie Dischert debut on America’s Next Top Model. The show is in its 22nd Season. On twitter, Dischert shared that her schedule has been busy lately. Today she expressed that she’s working with the NFL on a catalog.

Finally, Wilmington resident Valentino J Paula JR has gained the attention of music executives in Los Angeles. Paula has been making musical sounds for advertising agencies, movie and television production companies and more. His dream has always been to make it out of Wilmington.

“I grew up in most of the rough neighborhoods in Wilmington but I have always been a leader so I was never influenced by what ever my peers were involved in,” said Paula.
