“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anaïs Nin

And there I was… newly arrived from my country, observing what was happening around me, seeking to understand what the American culture was about, and soaking in the experience of being alone in a foreign country as I figured out life in a second language while keeping my values at sight. Soon after I responded to an ad I got my first modeling gig as a promotional model. It was June of 2004. My first two years here were very important as I gained a lot of experience and worked, worked, worked… (which I’ve always been passionate about). Then the break-up (with the man I had been dating for a while) happened and I went off on my own, asking myself questions that would lead me to a new direction. Shortly after I started dedicating more time to modeling and, as a result, I placed as runner up at an international beauty pageant in 2006. What a surprise that was! What was a playful, casual experiment ended up giving me the key to open lots of doors in the future.

It was nice to see how my understanding of myself and of life changed little by little. The once avid worker and studious, serious gal  did actually come out of the cocoon.

I am still my essence… and today I choose to be as limitless as I can conceive being.

Nice to meet you,

Flora.

    I?m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the difficulty is something that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very completely happy that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing referring to this.
