My Modeling Story

by Makenzi Cera Neil

I struggled with Faith since I was really little. I only "believed" in Christ because my parents were very into church. I became bored and when I was eleven I found out I had depression. I got angry very easily. Mostly at my siblings and when I got tired of it I began to cut myself. I thought I was ugly and not thin but "Chicken Legs" as in I had no muscle. I got tired of everybody saying "You're beautiful!". I was a model and sick of everyone saying you're too thin and when I gained weight I was too fat.

A lot of the models around me did drugs. Some were as young as 15! Eventually the girls got in trouble for it (by their parents and they were forced to quit modeling)and "dropped out" I continued to cut myself until my friend Marien took me to her youth group.

I realized I could only truly be fulfilled if I had Christ in my life and I gave my heart to Jesus and I did something very hard. I quit modeling because they were making me wear very immodest clothes and unchristian like poses. I am now 14 and am glad to be a daughter of the one true King.

That's a really nice story. =) I'm glad that you did what God wanted you to do.

You must have had a lot of faith. I know basically every girl in the world wants to be a model, and I'm impressed that you would give that up for God. Remember, you're not just beautiful in the world's terms, you are God's masterpiece, and the earth was not complete without you. God bless.
