💥 SECRET’S OUT!!!! 💥
Many of you have excitedly messaged me asking (more like proclaiming!!! 😆😆), “DID I JUST SEE YOU ON ELLEN???!!!!”.
Yes, my friends — that was ME!! ON ELLEN!!! 😀❤️
The fact I was on stage on Ellen’s show was not only an amazing and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.. but it seriously means SO much having done this because it really revealed to me how much I’ve grown and how far I’ve come.
A year ago, I used to be someone who would regularly think the same thoughts in my head such as: “what will they think?”, “what will they label me as?”, “you can’t do that until your attractive”, “just blend in, don’t put any attention to yourself”, “you’re not attractive enough for that”, it goes on and on.
Well a year later, I have worked on telling my mind, ENOUGH. Enough of the self-loathing, self-hate.. and realize, YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.
When the opportunity for a secret casting call came about, the me from a year ago would have never applied. I would have right away thought, “they wouldn’t want me, look at me”. The me today, without a doubt, went for it. I had a feeling it was for Ellen as well as there were a rumour we were going to be doing something this year for her show.
Even if I didn’t get it — the fact I decided to apply without hesitation was enough for me.. because I no longer made myself live to the confinement of my negative thoughts. I’m going to do me. No matter what others think and even if I didn’t get it — applying and sending a head & body shot was exciting all in itself! And it was something I wouldn’t have even done not too long ago.
Long story short, after being selected through the marketing team at my company, they then sent the final choices to the producers at Ellen who ultimately chose myself and three others.
And here we are!!!! 😀😀😀 I remember hoping one day I’d be on the Ellen show and by that I mean, somewhere in the back as an audience member. Little did I know that ‘one day’, I’d actually be ON the show and on that stage!!! 😂😂
I’m still reeling from excitement and still can’t believe it happened!! It was seriously SUCH A BLAST!!! 😀🙌🏼🎉
