Tell us about yourself (where are you from, age, whatever you want to add)
My name Christina but most of my friends call me Chrissy. I was born and raised in Houston which at some times it’s exciting and other times it’s boring. I’m 20 years old and I love going on adventures and the great outdoors. When I go on adventures it’s like your challenging yourself on how far you want to go, what are you looking for and what are you hoping to find. That’s the biggest thing I love about 2019 so far expanding my horizon and finding more and more about myself.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to show everyone that told me I couldn’t do this that I did this and by myself. It’s hard when your loved ones won’t support you and they keep putting you down and I learned that sometimes even though it hurts and sucks you gotta do what makes you happy.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
Once a point of them beautiful wasn’t even in my category. I was always with the wrong people or dated the one people and with the wrong people it was always a competition or with guys I always felt like I had to look a certain way or wear makeup. I soon got out of that zone when I started meeting the right people and soon afterwards when I looked in the mirror I could finally see what other people saw. I have a beautiful smile, eyes, my face structure and everything else. When I learned how to call myself beautiful my confidence sky rocketed and I started to love myself more without trying to get the appraise of other people. So being my own kind of beautiful helped me with my confidence so much and I’m grateful for that. It helped me dress out of my comfort clothes if I wanted to dress with bright clothes I’m going to do it because in my eyes if your confident with what your wearing everyone going to be like oh shoot I want to wear something like that now because she looks good I would have never thought. So guys if you don’t think your beautiful. Look in the mirror find something that you like about yourself and you will soon find more things and then you will how your beautiful you can get once you start pointing out everything.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I started modeling in the beginning of 2018 and doing fashion shows or photo shoots it’s a thrill to me. When I do fashion shows I feel like art. You have your hair design, face design and then what the designer choose for you to wear. It’s an exciting thrill that always goes through my body because I’m the moving finale. When I do photo shoots it’s like I’m a different person I get in the zone and I don’t even realize when I’m done with the shoot until the photographer says something. Fashion shows really helped with my confidence and it’s just a thrill.
What is your dream brand to model for?
I want to be a print model and a fashion show model. I want to make it big where I’m in vogue or just in any big magazine. I want to be in New York fashion week walking the run way.
How would you describe your fashion style?
My fashion style depends on my personality and how I feel. On the weekends I go for a more lazy look so baggy T-shirt and work out pants or just a long T-shirt and shorts. If I feel like being outstanding I might wear my neon outfits which I’m just starting to love the color on me, but my fashion style honestly just depends on my personality. I could do Tom boy, dress nice and sweet or like dang she bad.
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
Self awareness and confidence is so important to everyday life the reason for that is because in my generation a lot of people I know don’t have love for themselves. They want other people to love them and when things go south they are even worse then before because they don’t know what to do. Confidence is important because I remember I didn’t have confidence in middle school a lot of people thought they could run over me and push me around but when high school came I learned how to be vocal and stand up for myself and then people used to be like oh dang look like let’s ask her or maybe she can help. Because if your confidence everyone going to be like let’s ask her or dang I wish I could be like her or him. Just love yourself, believe in your self and never count on anyone for your self happiness.
What makes you beautiful?
My smile and my laugh. When I start to smile and laugh everyone can’t help but laugh with or smile back. I would have to say that’s my biggest strength if I’m feeling down or upset I will look in my mirror and smile and realize a girl this beautiful shouldn’t be upset when she has the world right in front of her and dreams that need to be finished.
What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?
Girl, don’t struggle. Find your beauty inside of you. What do you love about yourself ? Is it your hair, body or your facial features? It doesn’t even have to be about looks sometimes it could be your personality and how you act toward someone that makes you beautiful. Don’t ever let someone make you feel less of yourself or that your not beautiful. Everyone beautiful in their own unique way.
