Growing up I was always told that I was ugly and couldn't be anything beautiful because I wasn't "allowed" to. I always wanted to be a model and or actress but between kids & my foster parents I never thought I'd be able to. Now I am modeling and acting, I've changed my appearance and the way I feel about myself and I feel more in control of my life. It took a long time but it is worth it. The way I see myself now, no one can bring me down ever again. I know that from the start if wouldn't be easy but I knew it was possible. My confidence level is higher than ever and I am thankful for the people who support me through this journey and who bring me up when I'm down.
