While working together with Ann Taylor on this post I was reminded of how important it is that I use my platform to inspire as many as possible. The month of October marks 5 months since I quit my job and decided to become a full-time influencer. I’ve worked with brands, been featured in a book, attended my first NYFW and several things in between. All of these amazing opportunities are exactly what I’ve always wanted for myself. While shooting in this amazingly powerful look from Ann Taylor, I looked over my shoulder and saw a sign that read “I’m beautiful inside”. Turns out that this location is an older apartment complex. It made me think about how things are not always as they seem. I’ve passed this location hundreds of times and have never given any thought to what its purpose is or what it looks like on the inside.
It wasn’t just a sign hanging on a door, it was a sign from above reminding me to remain true to who I am. I’m a mother. I’m a wife. I’m a child of a broken home. I’m a survivor. I’m the child of a drug addicted parents. I’m resilient. I’m a loner but I like people. I’m adaptable. I’m tough but I wear my heart on my sleeve. I’m sensitive. I’m opinionated and verbal but peace is imperative to my well-being. All of these things make me who I am and it’s beautiful on the inside and out!
