Presenting model Lishh Lovely
Lishh is a great friend of mine and I’ve known her since high school. She’s talented, compassionate and wants to make changes in the world. I couldn’t be happier and more thankful to know such a beautiful spirit. I hope you enjoy her introduction on this blog and even support her if you will in her career.
Small town girl that loves the city; but misses the good old forest/country life from time to time.
My childhood was not easy. Most people would say I was forced to grow up quickly. Life had presented circumstances that as a child required a new mental attitude. In my eyes this is true but I am proud to say if life did not go down the road it did I would not be the person I am today. It hasn’t been easy but without the bad you don’t truly appreciate the good.
I was an awkward, shy girl, so you can imagine living in a small town where everyone knows everyone – I stuck out.
Like a sore thumb. While I’m thankful for who I am at that time being one of the only tan girls in the town was difficult. I started to really hate the way I looked; dreaming to be gorgeous like Marilyn Monroe. Or to look like my sisters since they are two of the most beautiful people that I know. It took some time before I realized that while I wanted to fit in like most kids too – I wouldn’t. I was not born to become a blend of colors.
I am one of those people that is born to stand out and help make changes. I want to use my voice to improve whatever I can, mainly because my biggest fear is dying without making a huge difference on this world. I aim to help others and make the world a better place, it’s a goal I hold dear to me.
I love helping others and sometimes I forget myself. Though in saying that I never want to stop helping people. Even when my own life is hard – I know I could be in a worse position. It helps remind me to try my best to still help others while taking care of myself.
I have learned you need to look after you then the rest will fall into place. It’s been a great lesson and has only helped shape me into a better person.
Loving yourself is the first step in accepting what needs to be accepted and then loving others comes much easier.
From the hard-times and hopes for a better future. I truly believe you should trust your struggle, it is there to help shape you into the person you are meant to be. Without struggles you will never find your true self and your calling in this world. It’s in times when you are unsure you are actually the most sure of yourself. Those moments open your mind to knowing what you want.
Nature is one of my passions; I guess you could say I am a bit of a hippie. I believe that what was on this earth before humans should be protected. Without nature we would no longer be able to survive. I am the kind of person that will advocate for those that are unable to speak for themselves.
Advocacy a huge part of who I am; I express this in many ways through nature, animals, the LGBTQ community, disabilities, and basic human rights. I do not like to be specific with genders, races, religions etc. Do to the fact that we all start the same; as people.We all deserve to showcase our talents to make this world a better place in any way we possible can.
I love to find talent in modeling I have found a love, a creative way to be expressive. Pictures can tell stories and I love that. I love sharing stories through my modelings.
I have been modeling since 2010. I have done two Fashion Shows for The Downtown Chatham Centre. Great achievements have occured in my modeling career such as being featured in the Chatham Daily News for The Ursuline College Dress Drive.
During my senior year I had professional prom photos taken by Sylvia Jae Houston. Worked with many photography students at Fanshawe, A great college. Among that I’ve worked with Stay Lovely Photography by Maddie Wade, Kyle Marko kreativek-photography, Dave Rush of Rushwear photography, and Lucas G Martens of LM Photography.
I’ve been featured in the Fanshawe Paper twice. I’ve been on the poster of the London Pride Fashion Show 2013; as well as in the show. That was such an honor.
I’ve received an award for being in the Fashion Show which lead to working with From My Eyes to Yours Photography and Insio Design Photography.
Future plans & dreams:
One day I hope to have a family I doubt it will be the white picket fence idea but whatever it is I know I will love them and they will love me. I would love to make a difference in this world.
In regards to work: I hope one day to work for Monster Energy Drink, Redbull and be featured in magazines. It’s my dream and I’m working hard even right now to acheieve it. It’s not only to prove to the industry that I’m the model they’re looking for but for myself. I’m proving to myself that I’m a strong, confident model. My past has created so many doors in my future. I hope that I can open each one with time.
I also would love to do more runway shows. I have also been considering entering Canada’s Next Top Model. Next year I am considering entering as a performer for Pride. I have always wanted to travel the world and model in every country.
