It's easy to look someone else in the eye, but uncomfortable to look in the mirror and stare into our own eyes. Usually we just skim the surface, looking to fix the very something we can't see. On the day I photographed Deshea, I looked into her eyes and saw "pretty". I saw the "pretty" that had been trapped on the inside for sooooo many years. As many women do, she struggled to see "pretty" for years. That day Deshea was ready to find it. Shy, nervous, full of expectations, maybe even afraid, not really knowing the outcome... looking for "pretty". I can't even really describe the actual moment, but when I turned the camera around to show her the image below, there was a gasp for air. The moment that you take your own breath away is simply priceless. Sometimes what we look so long and hard for is right in front of us all along. The only difference is we have to want to see it.
"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light." Matthew 6:22

Name one goal you would like to accomplish in the next 12 months and why.: I would like to go back to school to help people. Maybe study social work or a therapy. Helping people is my passion. It's what drives me and "TRUELY" makes me happy
Describe what makes you Fancy.: What makes me fancy is I feel like I'm like no other, I feel like I have a very unique look.
Who inspires you to succeed and why?: Who inspires me to succeed is a very good freind of mine named Aubrey DePew. She has helped me to see that in order to succeed or get to where i wanna be in life I have to be willing to be uncomfortable.
