I wish more girls out there would be more proud about the way they look and don't let anyone take the confidence away.
To many people have body issues mainly because of how others make them feel.
I say we are all beautiful and unique.
Beauty comes from within and it comes out if you know how to let it.
I was born in Romania in a small village. Raised by my dad and his new wife after he divorced my mum. Haven't had an easy childhood, raised by a father who's way was the only way. I was a shy girl with very few friends but close friends. It always took me long time to open up to people.
At the age of 17 I went to live with my mum for a year to finish high school and have been on my own from the age of 19.
My dream as a kid was to be a ballerina. But i got no support to pursue my dream.
At 15 i was a real loner, living a lot un my head and I wrote a book but ended up ashes after my father found it and called it a waste of time. Was nearly ready to be published by a literature teacher but after it was burned I really couldn't write again for many years. Only started a while back, hope to publish one day. For now I'm writing on www.lifeuglytruth.com, hope my life experience will help others.
Been with someone 17 years, divorced now, but it's true what they say: girls fall for guys like their dad at least once in their life. My ex-loved me in his own way...but haven't been supportive of anything I wanted to do and made me feel more insecure about my look. I've been a ghost for all this time
After a divorce I started to find myself. Started writing, getting strength and confidence back. Feeling like I can take on the world. It is nothing I can't do or at least try.
One day, someone came into my life and made me feel good about myself. I was thinking of modeling for a while but never put my thoughts into practice. He gave me the confidence and support needed to try a career in modeling.
I've been insecure about my body since I was little, but now for the first time in my life, I saw myself beautiful. Not perfect, but who is perfect. My imperfections makes me ME.
I decided to try get discovered and after few weeks of taking selfies and posting onInstagram, I've got contacted for my first shoot. Shortly after that, a photographer from America got me connected with someone in Dublin, where I live and I got my second shoot set up.
First one was in the studio with @danielricophoto. I remember I was so nervous...so afraid I won't be good at it. But it took me few minutes and I realized how much I love it. We were both surprised for the amount of work we did only in 2 hours. We did lingerie and implied nude as I was not ready to do full nudes yet.
The second shoot was a boudoir shoot with @redbrickpark_photo in a hotel where I discovered more about myself and my potential. With every picture, I started to love it more.
I did lingerie at first and really wanted to try nudes, to see how I feel. The fact that he was very nice and professional made it very easy for me. And I learned more about my potential.
Shortly after that, we did another shoot where we left our imagination to create things as they came to mind. Unplanned, we got some great pictures.
I know many girls are uncomfortable with nudes and are their right but I think a naked body is an art. And you can really get confidence in the way you look if you let yourself do whatever feels right for you.
I've also done a full clothed shoot with @p.f.photos. Looking forward to try more styles in the future.
I wish more girls out there would be more proud about the way they look and don't let anyone take the confidence away. To many people have body issues mainly because of how others make them feel.

I would like to take a moment to thank Urban Art Nomads magazine for giving me a chance to be published along with great photographers I was blessed to meet to make my experience easy and enjoyable from the beginning:
Also to a very special person who never meets me but believed in me, encouraged me and got me in touch with @redbrickpark_photo. Thank you @topa_structural_art for being always so kind to me and helping me more than you can imagine
