About MeWhen I am asked to fill out a bio, or "About Me"...I find myself taking a deep breath and settling in (getting comfy!), seeing as my life long passion has always been: writing; I DO get carried away sometimes. Forgive me if this, "bio" is a bit erratic and maybe random...I'll try to keep it short & sweet. My name is Grace. A name I like(d) SO MUCH I decided to ask my mom (immediately following a family therapy session) if she would please take me to the tat2 parlor so "GRACE" could be immortalized forever- above my right hip. I was 17 years old...which means my "body art" is 9 years old! OMG, that seems like a rather long time. My birth date is Sept.24th-I'm a Southern Libra, young lady, & i "fit the bill": I am a natural Charmer;) Now that I am (gulp) a quarter of a century old I've decided to quit being a sissy, put on my big girl panties and chase a dream that I have always assumed would be nothing more than that [a dream]. I am refering to the "modeling thing". My parents...dad especially, doesn't think it is "practical" & that I could\should be doing something else with my time. Wellll, I've pretty much always been a "outside of the box" kind of girl-a "learn the hard way" person...and, I've been told by MANY different people of all ages that I either SHOULD model (try it at least), or been asked WHY I don't model. I am my own worse critic and I can usually find about five things I'd like to improve about my outer appearance in about five seconds! (Hey, we ALL have issues.) But, in general, I like myself as a person pretty well! Since I am using the number 5 for some reason I'll throw out 5 words that describe, Me: Compassionate, Forgetful (endearingly, of course!), EXTREMELY Forgiving, Creative (&/or) Artistic, Super Accepting...for example, I embrace people,things & idea's that are different & maybe a little bit strange compared to social norms; I find people who have no qualms being themselves 100% of the time-people who are, "Real" (as opposed to being Fake & Artificial) much more intriguing & attractive. I pride myself on being myself 100% of the time. I am also, Intelligent. Besides the fact math gives me panick attacks, I am like a sponge when it comes to learning-one really SHOULD and CAN learn something new every day-I mean seriously, pick up a book people! Speaking of books, well, I LOVE them. I also love children and would like to have probably just 1 some day...for now, I dote on my niece & nephew. My declared major is journalism but during my college hiatus, I have decided that my calling is to teach young children. So, that is what I will be persuing when I go back to school (this summer or spring, I dunno). Right now though, I want to put myself & my apparently photogenic face (?) out in the world and see if I can't dabble around in this business and make some money while I'm at it! My BIG PLAN is to start doing [that] via., Model Mayhem. Some goals I have pertaining to my newest venture I suppose you could call it, are: be able to meet some really interesting & creative people and get the chance to model some really FAB, couture clothing! I'd love to be able to travel while I'm still not enrolled in school. AND...it would tickle me to death if I were able to make enough money to buy: those (new) cool, red, eco-friendly, washer & dryers for my mother- a pair of Jimmy Choo stilleto's (& prob a few other fashionable clothing items) for ME- take my nephew to DisneyWorld- and to be able to show my father an ad that I am in for Chanel sunglasses or Dasani water (I'm not above anything but raunchy, porn mags or laying on a car in a stupid bikini). And as far as StyLe is concerned, I have my own!
~ I ask that on ALL T.F.P. photo shoots that I Model that THE photographer/artist PLEASE Reimunburse me for amount of gas used traveling TO & FROM THE/A:Photography Studio, (AS WELL AS) "ON-SITE" Locations that [we] Work at. I think it's not only Fair that the Serious Model Only be repaid 4 using her own (or an escorts), WAAYY TO expensive gas but ALSO, Simply,4 the Fact's: We ALL tryin to get paid!
There are 85% more Models Registered on Mayhem than any other of you Professional Artist's. IT'S SIMPLY A CLASSY, Polite thing to do in order to use the Images of MY body (any way!) to add to Your profile. We both want great pictures & we both want to do absolutely nothing but IMPROVE our Portfolios... If this seems to much for Me to ask then simply Don't waste Precious Time ;)
~PLEASE BARE WITH ME AS I ADD-SUBTRACT FROM MY PORTFOIO AS IT GROWS & CHANGES...I'M DOIN THE BEST I CAN WITH WHAT/WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW.
~!APOLIGIES! IF IT HAPPENS 2 SEEM 2 YOU THAT MY RESPONSES [to msgs] ARE LESS THAN "PROMT" OCCASIONALY. APPRECIATED:)
