Growing up I have always lacked self confidence. In January of 2015 one of my new years resolutions was to break out of my shell, which I had been hiding in for most of my life. Modeling quickly became the solution and is now something I am very passionate about and enjoy doing. Little did I know this hobby would take me to London Fashion Week.
This past September I had the privilege to walk in London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 17 and it was one of the biggest things I have accomplished in my career so far. A few years ago I could have never imagined myself walking down a runway in front of hundreds of people and being blinded by the flash of photographers. But today I couldn’t image not doing it! When I walk down the runway I feel fearless and my nerves disappear. An abundance of emotion fills up in my body because I am so proud of how far I have grown in my own skin.
Not only has modeling taught me to become more confident but it has also had an impact on how I live my life now. It has made me want to have my own mind and not worry about what everybody else thinks. At the end of the day if something makes you happy, don’t let other people have the power to take that away from you. Instead stand up for what you believe in and be your authentic self. It is the greatest self-achievement you can make.
I challenge you reading this to step out of your comfort zone and do something that scares you. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
With love, gratitude and kindness,
