Life is about challenges and feeling an array of emotions.
During a single challenge you can feel elated, depressed, agitated, triumphant, and question yourself. If you keep pushing, you will find out who you really are.
I have changed the direction of my modeling and ultimately, my life. Where I once was a lingerie and glamour model, I am now aiming more towards fitness/lifestyle/glamour/fashion and for somebody like me it's not easy. My bookings have taken a hard hit, my self worth has been questioned and my relationships have suffered.
In the end, I know this is worth it because I'm out to set that I am more than just a body; I am a heart, soul, personality, and spirit. THAT is what you are capturing when you see me whether it's with your mind or your camera. This is me and just like I overcome each goal I set in the gym, this will be just another stepping stone in my career.
I say that to tell you that no matter what you're doing in life, if you're not happy and are dreading it then it's time for a change. It may be difficult at first and it might not seem worth it, but if you know in the deep down depths of your soul that it's what you want, get after it.
To those who are continually standing by my side and supporting me, pushing me, and sharing your stories with me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and look forward to showing you that you can change your stars.
