A Little About Me

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to look around. I would like to take this time to let you know a little about myself before you decided whether or not you want to continue tuning into my site. My name is Laura Geerman, I am 25 years old, and I am the mother of 3 beautiful young boys. I mostly enjoy writing, fashion/modeling, and crafting. As a young teen, I like many others fell into the scam modeling gigs and even signed up for one of those, "I will pay you to make me spend more money for a lot of nothing" pyramid schemes, that so often prey on young teens in malls. I gave up on pursuing modeling shortly thereafter due to lack of support from family and friends, and seeing as my mother was a single-parent she could not afford paying for the up-keep of a high maintainance pre-teen. I then had the cliched childhood you hear from every "emo" teenager these days, I fell into the wrong circles and I began to spiral out of control. During this uncontrolled time in my late teens, I lost my way and I did not pay attention to the important things. After sometime, I began getting my life back on track and I then became pregnant with my oldest son, after I had him it was 2 years, one month and one day before I had my second son, and the it was just under 2 years later that I then had my third son. I have during this time been a stay-at-home-mother to my children, while I have loved every bit of being here for my children I also have felt that I have lost myself and my identity. I by no means expect that during anytime of my journey that I will become famous or frequently talked about model, but I do want to be accepted in the modeling community as an equal. I intend on doing all that I can within the financial parameters that our current recession will provide, so that I may be able to achieve my goal properly. My goal is to transition from being a full-time mother to a model, I am not going to choose a sub-text for the modeling I will be doing because from one project to the next it could vary greatly. During my journey I intend on posting new content as it becomes available to me and I would love to hear from you if you have anything constructive to say. I am not looking for hate mail, I am fully aware of how cut-throat the modeling industry can be, as well as that by not having any formal training/etc that the odds are against me, and I am even more aware of how there are millions of aspiring models/actresses/actors who each day put themselves out there for the mainstream industry. I have one thing to say to those of you who are already part of the modeling community, I want to thank you for all that you do because without you I would have no inspiration to follow in your footsteps and at no point do I discredit your hard work because I intend on doing this to the fullest and therefore will eventually understand the struggles of a model (and if I fail horribly, then you are welcome to pick me apart while I truly do not want that to happen, the potential for failure is high and it is a real possiblity...). I will be completing and publishing corresponding pages between now and February 1, 2010, check back often to see new content.
