It was not always so easy. In the beginning there was much pain to endure. I cried a lot and wanted to give up many times. In hindsight, i think it would have been easier to stay the way I was. In addition to my confidence, drive, humor and sense of wit, I was always known as "the girl with the really pretty face". What's so bad about that?
I am so grateful for everyone that has helped and supported me throughout this journey. No one else could want this for me, but I believe that there are certain people that I could not have done this without. Looking back, I have pride knowing that I took a step outside of my comfort zone. I challenged myself to become a better version of the same person I had always been. My burning desire for change and strong sense of motivation, teamed with the knowledge and support of some amazing friends and family are the fundamental reasons why I have been so successful.
