I moved to New York City as a teenager and quickly started making money and enjoyed seeing myself on the covers and in the pages of fashion magazines. Yet, I was hopeless and empty.
But in that mixed-up world of fashion, modeling, depression and rebellion, Jesus found me.
Soon after my salvation, I set out to learn more about this Jesus who saved me and set me free. I studied at Bible College for two years, but knew God was calling me back to the fashion industry.
I re-entered the business with a different agenda. My industry became my ministry as I began sharing Christ with other models, photographers and make-up artists.
Today, I still model professionally, but also serve in the ministry, Modeling Christ.
As a budding model, I thought it was all about me. Jesus saved me, and now and forevermore, I am second.
