12.23.2011 Photo Shoot with Lauren Morgan

I’m free spirited, lively, out going, spontaneous, adventurous, and kind.  I believe that every girl deserves her moment in the spot light.  I think that love is stronger than hate.  I want to touch at least one person’s heart each day with even the smallest gesture.  I strive to smile more than cry, face my fears, and pursue my dreams.  Sometimes I fall, but I can always muster the strength to pick myself up again.  I don’t believe in giving up on something if your heart is in it.  I think that everyone has the potential to do something amazing with their life.  I believe that it is important to focus on the future rather than dwell on the past.

I don’t really know what my purpose is in life…does anyone?  I believe that as we grow, we learn more about our purpose each day.  But I think that it is not until we have experienced the majority of what we can, that we finally realize our purpose in life.  Others realize it sooner rather than later.  A friend of mine is 32 with 3 kids and 1 on the way.  She believes her purpose in life was to be a mom, and the best parent she can be to her little ones.  My best friend believes her purpose in life is to be a terrific artist.  When we earn our Doctorate, Bachelors, or Masters degree some believe that their purpose in life is whatever career they obtain.  But for me, I’m not really sure.  I know I was meant to help people.  If I can make a difference in one persons life, then I know that I’ve fulfilled at least one part of my purpose in life.  When I post a picture that I’ve modeled for, it might make someones day, I never know.  But I’ve always wanted to use the tools I’ve been given to better the life of another.

I’m ambitious and driven.  When I know what I want, I go after it.  I know that I have the potential do something amazing, I just don’t know what that is yet.  I’m still very young, and I’m still learning, I believe we’re all still learning.  My hero is my mom.  She died when I was 16 from breast cancer and fought to the very end.  She never gave up on my siblings and I, and she always encouraged us to make the best of each and every day.  She instilled independence, courage, faith, and responsibility in us.  She taught us that although we were racially different from most of our friends that we had an advantage.  Our parents were extremely persistent in ensuring that we always respect others and live by the golden rule.  I still believe in the things I was taught and the morals I grew up with.  I strive to emulate my mom in everything I do, and even when I fall short, I know she’s looking down still proud as ever.
