Fashion Hero TV Yarışması hakkında ne düşünüyorum?

I think The Fashion Hero TV series is a very empowering show, it demonstrates that you don’t have to look exactly a certain way to achieve your dreams, you can be different, be yourself and make a positive impact, leave your mark on society and change the perspective.

Bu nesil için neden iyi bir rol model olabilirim ve Fashion Hero'nun yeni yüzü olarak insanlara nasıl ilham verebilirim?

Since i was little i always got picked on for not looking a certain way. I was either too fat, too skinny, too tall, too short, my face was too long, etc. I have birthmark on my back and it always made me stand out, people always asked questions. Most of the time they would assume i had an accident or something bad had happened, when really i was just born with it and to be honest i love my birthmark, i think it makes me special. After all of this I’ve learned to love myself and my body for being different, I don’t want to look like everybody else i want to be me and inspire others to be themselves as well, and be proud of it. I’ve always wanted a platform where i can motivate others.
