Thanks for viewing my port!
My last bio was very impersonal, so I guess I’ll give this another try. My name is Faith Gonzales, and I was raised in Southern California. I grew up in a household with a beautiful Mother as a model, and a Barbazon Instructor as well (no pressure)! Through my childhood I was always performing, it ranged from Ballet to Beauty Pageants. Though my performing was extremely fun and entertaining, my mother quickly noticed that I won every Photogenic Award in each one of my pageants.
At the age of Fourteen, I was finally convinced by my mother (who else) that modeling was something that came easy to me. It was my first casting call in San Diego, California and it entailed reading a cheerio script. I thought it was more fun than I’ve had since my last pageant, but my mother looked like she was going to hurl the whole time. At every moment she kept this huge grin on her face like she had the winning prize. At the end of the day I got a call back from a popular Acting/Modeling school in Hollywood.
This was supposed to have been the most exciting time in any teenager’s life. My mother was diagnosed after delivering me, that she had an Auto Immune Disease that would eventually end her life. So it was about 2 month’s into my schooling that my mother became too ill to drive me to Hollywood every weekend. It devastated her, but I promised that if I quit now I’ll return one day soon.
So I was 18 years old, when my mother passed away in March of 2001. Ok, you must have already guessed it was the worst day of my life. So here I am 4 years later, and wanting to finish where I left off. As you read above now we’re off to Italy in November. This has been my dream, and I’m here to full fill it to the best I can.
"I am doing what I promised you Mom, and I’ll make you proud, love you!"
