Growing up I was always an outcast. I was a punk, goth, scene kid.. whatever you want to call it. I got bullied in school for being myself. Kids would make fun of my acne, tell me I would never be a model, call me a freak, throw me into lockers when I had to wear a back brace for scoliosis cause they knew i wouldn’t be able to get up. They would yell at me in the halls and write hate messages on my locker. I used to hide in the bathroom & after some time went by I developed a self harm/severe anxiety disorder. 12 years later i have modeled for tons of brands, been on billboards, won a tv show, wrote a book and designed fashion. Don’t let bullies take away your sparkle. Don’t let them change who you are. I share this with you because I want you to know you are not alone. I want you to know the other side of my story. If anyone is suffering and feels like they have no one to talk to, please DM me. We have the power to get through anything. As painful as it can be, I promise you it gets better. I am thankful for everything I’ve been through because i wouldn’t be the woman i am today without it. I am grateful for my pain cause it gave me the motivation to push myself to where i am now. I love you all & will always be grateful for the support you have given me over the years.
