I always wanted to get a professional photo shoot but was too shy to move forward with this dream. This contest would make it happen. I also suffered from facial paralysis 2 years ago which brought on mental health issues as well. This competition is commitment to my resiliency, my new self confidence and my strength.
If I am the wining participant, I WILL DONATE PART OF THE PRIZE MONEY TO A MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION. The rest will go towards a long time wish of mine, which is on a trip to Europe
