If you’ve heard my story before you know that I didn’t set out to be an activist in the food movement. It was all an accident. Growing up a very sick child, developing unconventional habits to help me break free from this over-processed world and the persistence of my friends who asked me to start this blog is what led to where I am today. I never thought I would quit my full-time job as a corporate consultant to do what I am doing today. I am an accidental activist. No one trained me on how to get the attention of the largest corporations in the world, how to handle the media interviews and the publicity necessary for spreading the message or how to handle the people who are trying to disparage me from moving forward.
So when Experience Life Magazine contacted me and said they wanted to put me on the cover of their magazine, I didn’t quite know what to expect. They flew me out to Los Angeles and spent an entire day with me from morning until night. I was actually kinda dreading the whole day, since getting my picture taken by strangers is not one of my favorite things to do! When I walked into the studio, my worries vanished, and I knew I was going to be all right. All I could think was “this is all for me?” The positive energy of the whole entire Experience Life team was contagious. A personal stylist was ready with a whole wardrobe of outfits to choose from, my hair & makeup was done by celebrity hollywood artists and a nice selection of healthy snacks were available! It was one of the most fun days of my life and a day I’ll never forget.
I can’t thank Experience Life enough for believing in me, this mission and for allowing me the honor to be on their cover of the October issue.
