In December of 2011 I began modeling lessons with Wicca Merlin. In each lesson, I learned more and grew not only as a model but as a person. I don’t know if you know her or not, but to me this lady is an inspiration. You hear so often how models hang onto every word that spills from the lips of Frolic Mills but that person for me, is Wicca. If you ever have the opportunity to meet her personally, count yourself blessed.
Wicca pushed me to look at things differently, to trust my instincts, and to see things outside of the norm. When I was my most insecure, she was pushing me even harder to take a deep breath and move forward. I firmly believe that without her influence in my life these past months, I would not have made it over some of the hurtles I’ve come across.
So today, after many months of lessons and preparation, I took the final exam. I don’t know how to explain it without taking away from the experience of 105, but this test…held much more meaning to me. I worried, I bobbled, and oh my gosh SL was being mean. But I did it. I kept going and refused to give up. And I passed.
Have you ever had that one person you looked up to, whom you just didn’t want to ever let down or disappoint? That’s what Wicca and this diploma mean to me. I promise to continue to push myself harder, to not give up, and to continue being an honest and caring model and person. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for everything you’ve taught and shared with me, Wicca!
