This cover shoot (for the latest issue of Speed Magazine) brought back A LOT of memories. 10 years worth of memories, to be exact. You can say my modelling career flashed before my eyes haha. Plenty has happened since 2004, and in a way it was good to remember the struggles, triumphs and experiences that came with my modelling career. Of course, the reason why the shoot brought back memories all the way from 2004 was because I shot my first solo cover on that year for this same magazine. This was a milestone for me, because I had only dreamed of coming out on a cover of magazine before this. My dream was fulfilled that year, and I did many more covers in the years to come. But, as they say, you can never forget your first. It really was such an exciting time for me!
And 10 years later, here I am. I keep forgetting that I’ve been doing what I’m doing for more than a decade now. So much has happened since–I’ve gone on to writing, hosting and blogging. I’ve gotten married, and moved several times before settling into our home. I’ve become more confident over the years, more sure of myself and my capabilities. I rarely doubt myself now. I have a lifestyle/travel television show, which I never in a million years would have thought I’d have the guts to do. And many more–I talk more about this in the interview I did for Speed’s cover story which I am asking you all to buy–please, please grab a copy hahaha!!!. Seriously though, this is so great to do a cover again for the same magazine 10 years later. I told them to get me again in 2024.
Okay, so I’ve attached my current cover (its the one on top of the page, in case you missed it) and my old cover (scroll down to see it). Sooooo, which one is better?!! Haha. Okay, I won’t ask anymore. But your answer should be the one now, obviously. Leave me a comment to let me know what you think. And again, please grab a copy of the magazine! THANK YOU and much love to you all! <3
