I I still remember, the first magazine that made an impression on me as a kid was Sassy Magazine. The focus on fashion was not conventional and the overall tone was very real, not sugar coated like typical teen magazines at the time. It was a little dark but humorous, like me. It also made me feel normal about wearing baby-doll dresses,vintage jeans and clogs all at once.
My high school years involved a lot of plotting to escape my small town for a glamorous life after a bad car accident and numerous reconstructive surgeries. This included grand plans like mailing television directors and begging them to let me be a cast member of “who’s the boss?” to being discovered at the local mall and whisked to NYC to straight up running away.
I Now I get to work with really strong personalities.
I When I was young my mommy would sing Blondie’s “The Tide is High” and Doris Day’s “Que Sera Sera” in broken English and would tell me I looked like Grace Kelly all while dancing/floating in circles with me. (She still does)
I now live in New York City. I’ve been around the world and NYC is still where it’s at!
I People think this of me that my voice does not match how I look. I have a deep voice and a loud, uncontrollable witch cackle laugh. People always comment on that when I meet them fro the first time. I think they expect me to sound like Minnie Mouse.
IWe are almost done here. I love dancing, rain, neon signs, french fries, mylar balloons cotton candy, the beach, red nail polish, smoky cat eyes, pouty lips, sequins, Pomeranians, rainbows, army jackets, cotton candy, laughter, Victoria Sponge cake, heart shapes and a sophisticated dash of glitter here and there.
I.If you could leave us with one thought, what would it be? Wake up every day to be better and stronger than yesterday.
