Edgy, analytical, sometimes overly political…

And finally, something I feel is important to put out there for consideration.
I am a vegan raw foodist for ethical as well as spiritual and health-related reasons.
Here is my mission statement, which sums up why I do many, most and possibly all of the things I do:
Mission Statement: To increase awareness through positivity in action.
My sole purpose for putting myself in public view is quite different from the reasons I find given by others I meet in everyday life. It has always seemed that I've been considered to be the "odd one" in most situations regarding public exposure, and even when I ventured into alternative work after severing my involvement with corporate spokesmodelling, I have often been referred to as "The Lorax"...
Although I have never gone the actual pageant or beauty contest route (have entered and won talent contests, but these were based upon stage performance and musical ability), I've been singing and dancing on stage as well modelling in one form or another from childhood up to now for reasons which very apparently differ from "the norm
My involvement in the entertainment industry has never been about getting attention for attention's sake (or even financial gain--throughout the course of my career I have skipped meals from time to time due to an occasional recurrence of "starving artist syndrome"), but basically to show people that an animal friendly vegan lifestyle promotes an amazing sense of vitality brought on by the Universal peace and harmony which comes from consciousness and shows through in a very bold way--even on stage/screen/celluloid.
It is also for these reasons that I ended up separating myself from corporate work of most types and have made a point of being as active as possible in my attempt to publicly increase animal, environmental, social as well as spiritual and individual awareness throughout the years.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
