Dear the Supermodels God that be,
OK -- I got the message loud and clear. The gloves are coming off, and it's time for me speak my mind. No sugar coating, no sensors. I have remained focus and professional in this competition, but now it's time to be more assertive and protect my own interest. While trying to remain thoughtful and respectful of others, I have somehow silenced myself and it's time to express my opinion.
I view this competition for what it is, a business venture. In any business, you have to take risks, make large investments, learn from our mistakes in order to be successful. Deciding to be on this show has been the biggest risk I have taken in 25yrs. I had no idea what I was getting my self into, but I have no regrets. My reality has become that of a disciplined student, who wants to be made into a Supermodel.
While everything else back home has been put on hold, I'm surrounded by strangers that I cannot trust because we are all fighting for the same piece of pie (sugar free of course) and I have to prove that my hunger has to be satisfied. I'm not sure what the future holds for me, but I do know all the sacrifices that I have made will be made worthwhile and my return on my investment will be great if I work hard and stay true to myself.
With that said, I feel that I was wronged this week by being in the bottom three. I respect panels decision but I believe it was based on misfortune and conflicting interpretations of third party feed back. This week was all about being a brand ambassador for companies like Proctor and Gamble, Bayer, Nikon, Bank of America and more. I enjoyed wearing and representing Marthe Francis Girbaud for their video look book but unfortunately the roles I was given in the scenes were supporting ones.
