I am 25 years old now and I cannot believe how far I’ve come. Occasionally, I find triggers that make me want to recede back into my shell. But it’s rare not to find me in big crowds, at the center of conversations, or rocking the life of the party. I am blessed that I have been able to see both sides of the personality spectrum and it has allowed me to appreciate all types of people.
The objective of this post is not to make you think that modeling will always solve the difficulties that come with being shy. Nor that to be successful you have to be outgoing or a model. The last thing I want to do is make you feel bad for being who you are. This is more for those of you who desire to be so much greater than you feel you are right now, whose personalities are screaming to be set free, who cannot seem to get past the insecurities in your own minds … Take baby steps, find the outlets that force you to come out of your comfort zone, surround yourself with good people, and most importantly – never give up.
Why blend in, when you are born to stand out? XO
