Ciara played the part of cheerleader before becoming the One Woman Army that she is today. The R&B beauty shares her story on a recent 10-minute episode of MTV's This Is How I Made It. CiCi goes back in time to her first stint with Hearsay and the first song she penned under L.A. Reid. It's not all sweet golden glory. “I’m far from where I wanna go, but I’m excited about the journey ahead,” says Ciara. “I wake up every day doing exactly what I wanna do and there’s no better feeling than that.”
