Jazzmyn: I am assuming that the page at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10766222/ is the one you are talking about (currently listed as "Jazzmyn Magalion"). The rest of these instructions assume that is the situation (otherwise, please disregard this message and provide all the details). 

Go to that page and click "Edit page".

On the next screen, on the Name Correction or Merge line, select "Add correction". Scroll down and click "Continue".

On the next screen, there will be a blank space in which to enter your corrected name. Enter it as:
Magallon, Jazzmyn

Below that, there will be a checkbox labeled "Preserve previous name on existing credits. i.e. '(as Jazzmyn Magalion)'". This is very important. If your credit on "12 Steps: Came to Believe" was displayed on screen as "Jazzmyn Magalion" (misspelled), then make sure that box is checked. But if your credit was displayed on screen as "Jazzmyn Magallon" (correctly spelled), then make sure that box is un-checked.

You will also need to provide an explanation in the Explanation box, which should be something like "This name page refers to me, but my name should be corrected to the correct spelling of my name, which is Jazzmyn Magallon rather than Jazzmyn Magalion." Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will get a warning that says, "The name 'Magallon, Jazzmyn' is not currently in the database. We have these people with similar names ..." followed by a list of names. Select the option at the end of the list that says, "Correct the name to 'Magallon, Jazzmyn' - do not merge it with another name."

If you un-checked the box for "Preserve previous name on existing credits ...", then you will also get a warning that says, "By unticking the box to preserve existing credits, you are implying they are incorrect ...." If that situation applies -- that is, if your only credit, on "12 Steps: Came to Believe", was displayed correctly on screen but entered incorrectly into IMDb, then check the box marked "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." 

Click "Re-check these updates". 

On the next screen, your data should appear with a green background and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

Allow a few days for your name correction to be processed. Good luck!
