In all of the journeys that I have experienced in my 22 years, there is so much that I find that I am blessed to pass on my story to others that it may enrich their lives and help them survive with a sense of gratitude and a love of life and a love to help all people.
The greatest projects that I love to do are modeling, seen here in these pages, and my love to write in order to help others. I recently gained some local newspaper attention from the release of my novel Rise of the Borderland Man that was written with the intentions to inspire troubled youth that go through seemingly impossible situations, as well as their struggles with their problems of self-image, especially in the face of the serious realities of gangs and bullying violence found in every community around the world. This book also speaks about the problems of the violence and neglect of vulnerable children and women in Mexico, which is what the Borderland is in the novel, where thousands of women have been found murdered over the last decade, and neglected or cast out children are to be found in the border towns that are so pitiful that they break your hearts with their life stories.
One of my recent great modeling experiences was at a shoot in San Francisco when I was partnered with Miss San Francisco, the great Agnes Liong, who is also honored with the title of Miss Germany International, and her personal message is to be a leader in the efforts of speaking out about bullying, and the two of us are writing our stories to be included in a new book out later this year.
There are plans for a major launch of my novel Rise of the Borderland Man later this summer, with an author signing event, and possibly some speaking engagements where we may be able to celebrate both the book release and the beginnings of hope and change in society where people’s awareness of their actions may be more harmonious and a spirit of helpful Brotherhood may reign in our cities, and around our planet.
