Wow, what a month! August was absolutely amazing. The month started off with dropping off the rent and picking up the keys to our new studio space. It is so great to get the work out of the house and to be able to work on a regular schedule and work more at work and relax more at home. We chose the studio at the Arts Asylum because of the way that we were treated during Miss Gay Missouri America and I think that it's a great relationship to have it'll be a lasting relationship that we can all truly appreciate.
Destiny’s Child was a huge success! Thank you everyone who came out to see the show! I cannot thank Genewa Stanwyck enough for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the show
It has been a nice relaxing month with little Miss Gay Missouri duties I will have to say though I do miss it already and I'm very happy that September has two prelims so two chances to qualify for Miss Gay Missouri 2017. The first chance is Miss Gay Kansas City September 10th at Missie B's with the reigning being Miss Monique Hart under the promoters Grover Vermillion, L'Oreal, and Matt Defreece. Miss Gay Kansas City has a long legacy and I am part to be a part of that as Miss Gay Kansas City 2012.
The second chance is Miss Gay Gateway Missouri September 24th, where Gateway goes cosplay! The reigning Allessandra Blaze and promoters Lola Vergara and Karma T. Cassidy have a great night planned for you!
The trip to Miss Gay America is coming up really fast! As we get closer my excitement level grows. From the moment I first entered a preliminary to Miss Gay Missouri, the dream was always to make it to MGA, and I am so glad to be going to MGA as Miss Gay Missouri for my first trip! I can truly say that my nerves are keeping under control and I am truly feeling the excitement. I have a new set being made and a new set of back up dancers as well. I have two new gowns in the works as well as new hair for all-star hair stylist Moltyn Decadence!! I have also started constructing my presentation costume! I can’t wait to show everyone what Missouri has to offer!!
Failure! Everyone is afraid of that word, they are afraid of what may happen if they do not succeed but the truth is, without failure we would not know the true beauty of success. Some of the most successful people in this world have gotten to where they are by learning from their failures. It took me four attempts to win Miss Gay Missouri, each time I did not succeed it only made me that much stronger. S what I say to you is GO FOR IT! Reach for your dreams do not let anyone (especially yourself) or the fear of failure hold you back!
Actors are always told that if they want to survive in this industry, they have to learn how to deal with rejection. That’s absolutely true, but I would argue there’s another demon out there that demands your attention too. And that demon’s name is failure.
We live in a country that places a high value on success. This is America. We’re No. 1. Failure is not an option. It’s a quaint thought that ignores our recent military and economic blunders, but if you ask me, it’s an ignorant concept that gets in the way of true success.
Failure is healthy, normal, and necessary.
Steve Jobs was fired from Apple in 1985. It was a very public failure. And as we all know, the man went on to change the world. As he said in his 2005 Stanford address: “I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life…. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.”
