I am saying thank you for a lot of things today. As I am hearing many sad stories from across this globe, from pain of loved ones to happenings of natural disasters, I am left with a feeling of absolute gratitude and appreciation for what I have in this crazy world!
There was a time, not too long ago actually, that I really didn't like who I was. I wasn't confident in the body that I was living in, always hoping that my belly would get flatter, or that my swimmer's shoulders were smaller, or wishing that I wasn't taller than most men that I meet... many critiques and things that I considered 'flaws' ruled my thoughts each day! I was always wishing to be someone else, or at least, a better version of myself... chasing my self-worth and happiness.
As I get ready for two casting calls tomorrow, I think to myself, what may come from the results is not as important as what I actually feel and take away from doing this type of work. I celebrate myself with the camera, instead of trying to master the perfect pose in order to hide those so-called flaws of mine. I am proud to know that I represent myself as the woman I am, not just doing any concept that comes my way and desperately hoping to have another shoot completed to post on my profiles! I am selective with my projects, as I want my portfolio to represent who I am as a person. Others' opinions of my work are just that, opinions! Everyone is entitled to having their own, but now, I know that they do not define who I am, nor should they resonate with me and make me want to change myself in order to appease them.
As the lovely Gloria Gaynor once sang, "I am what I am and what I am needs no excuses!" I am a 6-foot ginger, built more like a curvy Viking than a typical lady, who could probably tackle and pin most people around me. I except my strength and my stature with open arms and I am truly thankful for the acceptance I finally have for myself!
Stand tall, be proud and be who you are as an individual, its the best version of yourself there ever will be!
After a year of taking my modelling more seriously, I have now released my website for your viewing pleasure!
There are myriad of photos now in my portfolio; aiming at showing you my versatility through the different styles of photoshoots I have done, my personality that I like to portray in each shot, and my reputation as a dedicated model and muse, willing to do what it takes to get the perfect shot!
I am excited to be also starting my Blog, being able to share my experiences, any upcoming events that I have planned, and as well, having you all follow along and comment with me.
This is an exciting time for me and I am so very happy that I can share my journey with you all. As always, I certainly appreciate all of my fans, with their continuous support, encouragement and inspiration. You motivate me to move forward, to push my boundaries and most of all, to have fun doing it! Thank You Everyone!
Lots of Love,
