Well… here is this months stunning ANGEL!!!! Once again…. it started a couple of years ago… 2009 actually… a good friend of mine – Uyen Huynh and I wanted to do something for women… women that have been through things… women who have been through things that changed them and some are still broken… who are still going through battles of various kinds… some have come through them and have become stronger…. some are still working their way through them…. a role model for never giving up in yourself… believing in yourself… Chelsey is such a strong young lady…. she is currently fighting bullying…. has recently gone through some dark times and has come out the other side… she has a amazing support system… but being a young women is and has always been difficult… specially when you are a strong, athletic, smart and beautiful young lady… here are her words:
“Being a girl can be tons of fun, shopping, sleepovers, boys, nonstop laughing, and just enjoying being together, but what about when your friends turn on you and your left with nothing. Boys may look like the mean aggressive ones but truly us girls are just has bad if not worse, we spread rumours, constant gossiping, completely alienating an individual just to make them feel bad about themselves, and putting you down right at the age were confidence is everything. This is what exactly what happened to me, I thought I had everything, amazing friends, a boy that I really liked, and good grades in school. Things were going great in my life until my best friend decided the boy I liked should be hers. Even though she was my best friend, as soon as she liked him I was seen has a threat not a friend, when it began she started discluding me from everything, completely shutting me out. Then came the hate texts, a few from her but mostly from numbers I didn’t know. They would say things like “you’re a terrible person, no one likes you” and “You don’t deserve friends at all”. Things were getting worse and worse every day, I had no friends to lean on, I felt like the world hated me and I just felt like giving up. I didn’t know what I did wrong yet she had turned what felt like everyone against me, Because I started to dread going to school and always felt awful my grades began to drop and the boy that I liked, I shut out because I thought it would help. It didn’t. Even though I felt terrible and it felt like it was never going to get better, it did. Gina and the rest of the girls really helped me see how beautiful and loved I really am, they showed me that no matter what anyone else thinks of you, in the end its only your opinion that matters. Iv lived through bullying and I know that every other girl and boy will face some sort of bullying in their life, just no that it gets better and you are will always be loved. “
The Angel program welcomes two new additions – Ashley – she is a stylist and amazing make-up artist – we are thrilled to have her with us! Chic Shop Canada for the beautiful dress!!!! Awhile ago…. Uyen and I decided we wanted to show these ladies that they are beautiful…. whatever stage they are at… whatever they have gone through… that someone cares…. and wants to help… who hears them…. we want to celebrate their strengh. Over the years we have helped many ladies… including a very young beautiful young lady who has come through the other side of cancer… we want to try to find a support system for them if they don’t have one… we want to give them a fresh look…. maybe help get them on their feet with some new clothing for work so they can go to work with pride… Uyen (Provincial and National Award Winning Stylist) gives the ladies a new look… hair… makeup…. and I take them out and capture them… the way I see them… the way God created them… the way they should see themselves… as beautiful as they really are….
We are here to celebrate women… like we have for the past few years… women who have made a difference in peoples lives…. who have changed lives… who have been and continue to be role models in our community… do you know such a lady??? We would love to meet her and celebrate her for who she is… where she is at…. please contact myself at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to nominate someone (this is our gift to them – there is no cost associated with this) and let us know why they should be celebrated… our children and teens… young women need amazing role models right here in our city… please… let us celebrate them! These are real people… making a difference… not models… they don’t have to be featured… would love it if they were… but it can just be about making them feel special and loved… it can be totally private too!
