Having a voice and having the courage to use it is what I am all about. I have seen and heard many peoples problems of not being able to use their voice because they are too afraid. So I make sure my voice is not just enough for myself but for everyone’s voice who isn’t being heard. Going through much struggle myself I know it is actually very hard to be able to represent what you love when most of the time everyones eyes are on you and the pressure of acceptance becomes very scary. I too get afraid just like everyone else because well I am human, but I have my own traits that need to be seen in this world. After much struggle on figuring who I wanted to become, I have found the true me, one who stands up for those who can’t, and I have made it my mission to let my joy and my laugh to be the motivation that others need to make sure that they leave an imprint on this world along with the other amazing people walking alongside us. Many of us feel the importance of the movements we create with the smile that is given to us as we pass by a complete stranger. Even after feeling defeated in my life, one thing is for sure: that no matter the amount of times I get knocked down, I will stand up once more expressing and showing the beauty that I am bringing to this world to lend others a hand to get up once more as well. I’ve learned what self value is and that is truly hard to find, but, seeing the self value I have within myself, I would love to give others the guidance to also find their true inner beauty.
