Who am I?

I'm a bit of a weirdo. I get a kick out of making others laugh. I have a newborn - he'll be five months soon. His name is Avery. I love basketball - that was random. I have a short attention span and a long list of things I want to accomplish. I'm an artist, social worker and educator - those ideologies of careers combined, help me with insight, foresight, creativity, logic and life. I know I've gotten where I am because I take risks and make decisions that aren't atypical and I like that about myself. I've lived through many losses and triumphs and am still hurdling into space. Through it all I've developed empathy, sweetness, sarcasm, wit, wisdom and a craving for world domination. I'm Pinky and I'm the Brain.

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

I think The Fashion Hero is conceptually a brilliant idea. Movements for real people to be represented in fashion, is long overdue. However, at the same time, there is this fine line between representation of people that choose certain fashions and are of a certain demographic (i.e. gender, age, class, culture, religion, and ability) and fashion that tokenizes individuals to sell a brand (it is obvious to us as consumers, when this happens). The possibilities of what could be, is what I believe that The Fashion Hero can do for the industry. Fashion like Music, Art, Dance and Song is for everyone and my hope is that The Fashion Hero can help people to realize this. Also, who doesn't love fashion? and who doesn't love heroes?

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

I believe Fashion should be FUN! Our clothes should make us feel good not just look good. I also believe in others (especially when they don't believe in themselves), like sincerely believe in others. I know that we sometimes don't get to choose our circumstances but if we are resilient and strive for goodness not greatness, our circumstances can become the best things that happen to us. We can allow things to build our character or tear us down - sometimes though this is harder for some, more than others. I want to be the kind of person that stands beside someone and says, "I got you". I want to be able to use The Fashion Hero platform to educate with humility. For me, The Fashion Hero can be the great equalizer.
