Who am I?

I am a one of a kind person who finds their way as they go. I love arts of all kinds, music and pop culture and my animals above all else! I have a liking for the darker things in life and My tattoos and piercings make me more who I truly am inside.

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

I think it’s an amazing opportunity for people to share their unique traits and show the world how amazing all kinds of people can be!

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

I grew up with medical and mental health struggles. I had a rough start in schools and seemed to never fit in anywhere. Over the years I gained more scars mental and physical and landed in a dark place. I felt alone and worthless and like things would never change. One day I almost died... I got sick so fast it got out of control and I was put on life support. Four days passed and I wake up in a hospital bed no clue how I got there. When I woke up i had to relearn to walk, write and play my guitar. I fought, every day I fought to walk a little farther and ignore the dark thoughts flooding my brain. Somehow that was the best thing to ever happen to me because I realized I was stronger than I had ever imagined, that I was one of a kind and that’s okay. I worked at my recovery of my physical and psychological well-being for two years and counting. I am now stronger than I was before I got sick, my scars have healed and I never give up for anything. I found my own self worth And stood up to my abuser and freed myself. Today two years later I am confident strong and free. I believe I could inspire others struggling with mental and physical illness to find speak up and demand the respect and care their deserve from doctors, therapists and more and show them that they can recover from those things, they can recover from their trauma and their ailments and see their own power within themselves to create the future they want for themselves and others around them.
