I didn’t always use to model I started modeling a year ago. I asked my friend if she liked it and how she have that courage to walk in front of all those people. She explained it to me and I felt like I was ready so I decided to step out my comfort zone. And joined “Queen of Grace” mother hood agency, but before I started modeling I use to get bullied because of my weight that I couldn’t control. It would hurt because I couldn’t do anything about it because of the medicine I use to take and etc.
But then I decided to take matters into my own hands and work on me and turn the negativity into positivity. I started working out and working on me and getting to know God more and praying and crying to him about my issues. But I began to get more comfortable with my weight as I was in my weight loss journey building my self esteem and encouraging myself. And in that time I began modeling and the more I modeled and did shows the more fun and self esteem I was gaining and getting sponsors and things like that. And I have to say I wouldn’t be where I am if it wasn’t for god hearing my prayers and cry’s to him. But just remember cause it took me a min for me to see it my self no matter what your weight is, skin color, and height you can do what ever you put you mind to. If someone tells you, you can’t you show them u can prove them wrong and claim your self. A month or 2 ago I was told this saying by my youth pastor when he was teaching a lesson called Wonderfully Made he said “ I am Gods master peace ” and “ I am fearfully and wonderfully made “ just say that to your self in your mirror and believe and watch how it affects you and boy do I feel amazing.
