Example text

I felt uneasy in front of the camera and shy about being photographed. It didn’t help that I was getting taller and clumsier. With the sixth grade came braces and some really freaky side bangs (which didn’t help my self-confidence or my belief that I was getting closer to a Brooke Shields existence). I could barely see the dream through the fog, and it was discouraging. On days when I had a shoot, I’d be filled with this contradictory mixture of excitement and dread—though I could never really say what I was dreading.

It’s not easy to be a teenage girl. I’m sure you have your own struggles. Struggles (plural) camped out in my teenage mind and body for a long time, and I didn’t even realize how some of these struggles were damaging my understanding of myself and even my relationships. So, after reading a book about girls I didn’t know and considering my own story, I had to ask… …Is there anyone else? Is there anyone else who has been able to find her way through the struggles that keep her from seeing who they are in Christ and the dreams God has given her?

The photo was taken in the fall of 1996. I was sitting on top of a luxury car as I rode through a small-town festival parade. It was my senior year in high school, and I was a festival queen—a far cry from the supermodel lifestyle I’d once dreamt about. The stylish supermodels of the 90s—Nikki Taylor, Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks—were people whose lifestyles I sought after. But somehow, through a weird chain of events, I ended up sitting atop a car as a festival queen. It’s obvious I’m no supermodel.
