A world full of “no, you don’t have what it takes to be a model”

I remember when I was a teenager, I liked a boy at school — I liked him a lot. We were always together, basically talking about the cute girls in school — he obviously didn’t consider me one of them (sometimes I wonder if he even saw me as a girl). The “cute girls” where the skinny ones, the ones who wore super short skirts and knew how to flirt. And then there was me: chubby, still playing with my toys and having no clue how to be sexy. Remember: I was 12 – 13 years old. Then, one day, it hit me like lightning: I needed to loose weight. Yes! That would make people notice me, right? Wrong. I mean, I was getting so skinny, so sick, that people were noticing me; but in the wrong way.

Time passed by and at some point I couldn’t give two shits about that boy who I used to like so much. He became nothing to me; but my disease stayed — forever.

When I got a little bit older, I started applying to model agencies; and they all said no to me. The excuse was always the same: “you’re very pretty, but we need smaller girls.” When you hear someone saying that, you feel like a huge mammoth; and your self-esteem hides in the deepest, darkest  corner of you soul.

So what did I do? I went fully anorexic. I’d feel guilty even for eating one banana a day. They got what they wanted: a smaller girl who looked great in their clothes. And there I was, working as a model, and basically dying.

I don’t want ANY of that to happen to you. Women are beautiful, sexy, charismatic, they have beautiful curves, and anyone who says otherwise is a stupid piece of shit.

That’s why I invite ALL of you to be my models! I’ll be more than happy to photograph such beauty: regardless of age, weight, height, type of hair, body type, etc.

Remember: you are ALL beautiful! You don’t need someone else telling you you can’t be a  model — because you CAN. You can fill your houses, instagrams, facebook profiles, etc with amazing pictures — and feel as pretty as those girls you see online.

I’m here to help you find your way back to beauty. 

It will be a pleasure working with you!

Decisions, decisions

Life would be so much easier if we didn’t have to make decisions all the time, right? Unfortunately, we can’t. According to studies, “a typical adult makes 27 judgments a day and 773,618 decisions over a lifetime”. Some are easy to make, others seem to be impossible — but they’re not. When you decide on something and have the will to carry on with your choice, life gets a lot easier. No matter how hard it was to decide. How many times have you thought there was no way out? When you fully accept your decisions, your choices and move on with your life, you will see there is no coming back to the dark place you were before. Of course we make a good amount of bad decisions — everyone does. That’s when life gives us the famous “second chance”, so we can learn from our mistakes and make better decisions for the future. Don’t blame yourself too much for the bad things you’ve done — these are the things that will teach you the most. Also, try to respect other people’s decisions, it’s their lives they are trying to rebuild.
