Who am I?

An activist , a sexual assault survivor, an lgbtq member, a real life "single white female " scenario survivor, and a sufferer of depression and anxiety. But most of all I am a strong independent young woman aiming to reinvent and demolish the set beauty standard. Growing up in the pageant industry I was constantly told from the age of eight years old what the perfect girl looked and acted like. My parents payed large amounts of money to women and men who taught me not to talk about my sexuality or the horrors I had lived through and to hide the fact that I have a mental illness. I was constantly advised to change myself in order to fit the role, but I’m done doing that. This is who I am. Mental illness should be normalized, not treated as taboo. Sexuality should be able to be expressed if that’s what you personally want to do, not suppressed. We should not be ashamed of where we come from, who our family is or isn't, the evils that have been perpetrated against us or our beliefs. We are the new generation, it’s time to stand up for change.

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

Fashion Hero is effective in eliminating unrealistic standards in the beauty industry and overall reinventing fashion itself. It is top tier and innovative.

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

As someone who has grown up in the fashion and modeling industry I’ve seen a lot of different faces. I’ve adapted the idea that there is no such thing as “ugly” but rather that beauty quite literally comes in all forms. Just because we look different doesn’t make any one person better than the other. In the past I’ve struggled with stigma and bullying against the alignment problems with my eyes from absent minded people who haven’t yet found that beauty doesn’t have a specific face, body or color. I want to share this belief with the upcoming generations and a bigger platform would be great to spread the word and boost the confidence of kiddos all over.
