I was asked to make a post about what motivates me. I had to sit down and think about it for a while, it was a great request.
I’m a Black , five foot two female living in New York City. Sounds simple but it is not easy. I can not think of any girls in the modeling or fitness world who are quite like me. I am going to change that. Of course my parents want something else for me but I feel it is necessary for every person to chose their own path, regardless of what others say.
The doubt that people have in me and the encouragement I get from my real supporters. . . I will not be the woman sitting around her apartment wondering what if I had pursued my dreams? I do have competition. There will always be a female that people believe is prettier than you. Regardless of whether its true or not, I know I am strong and beautiful and I will succeed. Keeping that mindset will get me through and dispose of insecurities. Remember that nothing that is really worth it is easy!
