Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, this year for Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19 May 2019) the charity is focusing on Body Image. Body image issues can affect all of us...
I played with a hand gun at age 14 and it gave me a lifetime in a wheelchair.
Despite what you might think, Ihave never found a reason to be victimised by my condition. My spiritual and physical scars made me grow stronger, empowered. I wanted to be a tennis player, so I became a tennis player. I wanted to be a model, and guess what... I am a model.
As a model of diversity, I work in the fashion industry representing people that have limitations but are not limited. They love, they fight, they win, they lose. They are real and my story helps them to see how beautiful and meaningful they are. Scars included.
