Who am I?

I'm just a geeky deaf guy who trying to break the stereotypes.

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

The idea of breaking stereotypes and the beauty standard is a very good idea... But there's some things that are not broken yet and I wanna break them

Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero?

I was born legally deaf, having a facial deformity and having heart issues. There isn't that many people who represent the disability community but I think we need more of those in the fashion industry. Being deaf, I have to go to a deaf school throughout my whole life in Okahoma, and graduated there, during the school years, I was in so many art competitions due to my skills in art, which is because I wasn't able to do any sports. Throughout my whole life, I was told that I will never be able to succeed and go anywhere due to my disability but I told people that I am able to do whatever I want if I work hard on it. I had college professors telling me I will never succeed, I was made fun of and bullied due to my speech problems and appearance but that never stop me. I got hired as a freelance video editor in California so I moved out here, proving people that I was able to live out alone and doing stuff I love. When comes to fashion industry or acting industry, there's isn't that many disabled people that represent the disability community, sure there's a few, but they're mostly good looking people and that kinda sucks for the rest of us because we can't really relate to them on a personal level. I wanna show people no matter what they look or what they sound like, they're able to do anything they want if they set their mind to it. I wanna be that kind of a role model
