Live the Beauty Inside You!
“What’s wrong with me?”
I spent far too many years asking myself that.
Too many years being bullied as a kid, racially discriminated against, controlled by an overbearing father, and sexually harassed by male and female colleagues. Too many years feeling sad, alone, depressed and worthless.
I doubted every choice I made.
When I transitioned into photography, I discovered I had a knack for creating stunning portraits of people who hated being in front of the camera.
I soon realized that these incredible people, who claimed they weren't photogenic, couldn't see their own beauty. They couldn't see what I saw - all of their beautiful achievements and astonishing kindness.
Looking through a different lens, I saw myself in a totally new way...
We overlook our magic and beauty within.
You see, by this point in my life I could speak four languages, cook, sew, dance, install hardwood floors, race cars, snowboard, build websites, and groom dogs.
I had competed in beauty pageants, won scholarships, studied abroad, mentored youth, volunteered, worked as a model, graphic designer, online retailer, an artist, and now I was a damn good photographer!
I was better than enough, I was unfuckingbelieveable!
The problem was,
I spent so much time stewing on the negatives that I totally overlooked how amazing I actually was!
Suddenly, I found myself featured in magazines, being interviewed on panels, solo on a TEDx stage, and then speaking at international events before thousands.
If I can find my confidence, so can you!
