Happy Wednesday my loves! I’ve been back and forth but I had to drop in and share some thoughts that meant a lot to me. A few weeks back I went to the Torrid Model Search here in Atlanta at North Point Mall, and I must say that was one experience of a lifetime. I had the opportunity to be surrounded by SO many beautiful, plus-size aspiring models who possessed poise, confidence and attitude. I can proudly say the Torrid Model Search was one step closer to my dream.
But NOW, is the real reason I am writing this. The WAIT for the Torrid Model Search is nearing and I have been furiously checking my email day after day. EVERY single time a Torrid email pops up I step back and have a little “mental” talk with myself to keep my eyes on the prize and believe in myself. Funny thing how after I work up enough energy to open the email, it’s one with the current sale. LOL talk about prepping for the right moment. So far the candidates have not been chosen yet, but they are soon to come sometime this month and I can’t wait!
Overall, no matter the decision made for the finalists, I learned so much about remaining positive in light of what society portrays beauty as. I will always feel good in my skin and walk with my head held high, purse on my wrist and a crown on my head. Remaining confident in yourself could help the next beauty who is struggling with her own appearance. Never give up on your dreams and aspirations because it is NEVER too far to reach them. The sky is not your only limit! Keep pushing, stay curvy and be FIERCE.
Shout out to the best MUA a girl could ask for, Byanca because she helped me out in the knick of time and Sofia for using her phone to snap photos of me with Maria Gimena (Torrid Model) since my camera was broken. My day was made even better because of you guys!
