As a child and growing up, I fought a lot with depression. As I continued down a road of destruction, the roads in my life was bumpy. I chose to use those moments to change almost every aspect of my life, and instead of letting it get me down, I used it to grow. One of the biggest lessons I have learned is that you have to take time to do something you love. I chose to become a model because when I get in front of the camera, I feel beautiful and elegant. I'm alive!! This is my passion, what I love to do. The point of this life is not to spend it unhappy, but to embrace every moment and search for those moments of joy.
My Journey started Spring 2012 when a girl (who has since become a good friend) pushed me in the right direction. Never thinking about that being an option, I started to think. With everything piling down on me and me needing an outlet, I figured it was worth a try. I never thought that people would show the interest they did. But as they did, I met many great people and many wonderful friends. I'm lucky.
I have always heard the saying "The ones who make the biggest impact on this world, are tested the hardest". I truly believe it. If I had never been tested, I would not be who I am today.
Thank you to everyone who has stood behind me, thank you to everyone who has been my role models, photographers, family, friends, and even those who have hurt me. You all have played a pinnacle role in my life.
