Dreams are meant to be accomplished

16

Yesterday I had my second fashion show and the chance to walk on a runway with two gorgeous dresses.
I remember when I was little and I told my mom how much I would love to be a model, and I still remember the response she gave me: “You can’t be a model, you have tiny eyes, you aren’t that tall and you can’t walk very well“.
All of that was true, I have tiny round eyes, I’m not that tall to be a professional model and I had problems in my feet and couldn’t walk straight. So I gave up too easily, forgot about all that and kept going with my own things. Later I discovered I can use make-up on my tiny eyes to make them bigger, I can use heels to be taller and I used special shoes to correct my feet.
And I remembered all this yesterday, while walking on my own feet down the runway, with fake eyelashes and 5″ heels, and while several camera’s flashes were pointing at me I couldn’t stop thinking: “I told you mom, I can be a model“.
Don’t let anyone tell you what you cannot do!

  1. Aww! This really brought tears to my eyes… When I was little so many people told me “you cannot be that”, “you cannot do that”, etc. Only my mom always believed that I can become anything I want, and today I’m so happy with who I am and what I achieved by this day.
    Never stop believing in yourself, Adriana! You are beautiful!!!!!!

    Many kisses your way.

  2. you are so pretty! i love your blog. :)

  3. a mi me pasó algo parecido, pero no en cuanto a ser modelo ya que no tengo remedio jaja mido 1.52 y no estoy flaca…PERO mi papá siempre se enojaba porque mis hermanas y yo desde chiquitas nos tardábamos años en arreglarnos para ir a la escuela, a comer, fiestas, lo que sea a donde él nos llevara, siempre decía “no es un desfile de modas, van a la escuela, pónganse lo que sea”… pues hace poco le comenté que me acordé de eso cuando gané un premio en diseño de modas, ya que soy diseñadora.. le dije “papá ya vez, tú me metiste la idea en la cabeza… everyday is a runway show!” jajaja saludos.. gracias por seguirme, te sigo tmb!

  4. You look absolutely beautiful.

    I’d love to do runway, but I’m not runway height at all, I’ve done it for fashion design students at my uni when they’ve had presentations, and I’ve always loved it.

    Of course we can follow each other, following you know…x
