Beyond pictures

When I was young my mom wanted to put my brother and me in modeling. She took us to this agency called “the green agency” to sign us up. I was full of so much excitement that day. The lady looked at my brother and I and she told my mother there is no chance for me to be a model because of my acne. I know that she was being honest because she was friends with my mom but it broke my heart. All my dreams conceived and shattered on the same day. My brother modeled for a short period of time but he didn’t enjoy it much. I’ve dealt with acne and scars for as long as I could remember. Nonetheless, I still wanted nothing more than to be a model. I always felt like I wanted to prove to that lady that Women with acne can be models. In essence, this photo shoot meant a lot to me. Not only because the photographer is an amazing friend but above all, I felt liberated. Trust me, I am far from a model nor do I desire to be one anymore. Mainly this was fun. I said I wanted to finally get out there and do it and I did! Is it too much to send copies to the agency that told my mom I couldn’t model because of acne? Im Kidding! But in all honesty, I’ve never felt more comfortable in my own skin. I was wearing makeup, yes. but regardless, I want everyone who suffers from acne to know that you are beautiful. Love your skin and embrace your scars. Above all, follow your dreams. Don’t be afraid to let others take pictures of you, don’t be afraid of selfies. Don’t let it get in your way from all the things you desire. Excited to show you guys some pictures from the shoot!

  2. First of all, you look beautiful and have always been beautiful. Don’t ever doubt that. Modeling agencies reject a lot of people, even some of the most beautiful ones. At the end of the day it’s a business and unfortunately they crush lots of self-esteems in the process. Dont take it personal. Yet, I’m glad it made you stronger and you now love the skin you are in. That’s what matters. Keep pursuing everything your heart desires, the work is your open canvas- paint your story!
