Foster’s, anything is possible once you put your mind to it. From previous blog post you can see the results and the hard work Janiela does in her journey. Your not going to see results over night, but over time. During this year and a half of her journey I’ve seen her loose a lot of weight and transform herself. I see her become more confident in who she is as a person. Shw is not done with her journey, but she is so beatiful inside & out she shouldn’t give up trying to be a model. The fashion world is changing and ahe would be perfect as a model, the picture’s speak for themselves CONFIDENT.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post and wish Janiela a Happy 21st Birthday!!!!
Love, Dazhane Fisher
