    Heather kuzmich is my favourite contestant on america's next top model ever!!!!!!She is such a special girl. Heather's got asperger a mild version of autism. Eventhow that might have given her an disadvantage on antm, she did excellent on the photo shoots. I saw her on the first episode and I was imediatly drawn to her. She was one of those girls you couldn't miss if you were watching that show.

    In the first episode other girls were making fun of her and her akward behaviour. But she pulled through.

    In the first photoshoot she was paired with saleisha the later winner of antm. Maybe they did that to see how heather would react with someone else next to her.

    Also her rock climbing an plant pictures were awesome. The judges were praising her to heaven.But on the gargoyle shoot they noticed that she took only profile shots. So she had to do a face on shoot next time. On the episode were they had to do a anouncement about aids in africa Heather was in a group that couldnt think of anything to say. But the three girls won. Heather was picked to do another photoshoot by herself ,she met mary j blige and got praised for her personality. The director of the shoot was also very excitied about heather. Saying she could make it in the modelling industry. When she got back at the house she was so happy and pretty. And then there was a shoot with garbage materials.

    She did it face forward this time. and it was awesome one good pose and shot after another. That's how far I watched for now. But I looked up info online about her. And know she's gonna be eliminated because she couldn't complete the go sees challenge. I wish they had given her another chance. Because she just takes the best pictures of cycle 9. Heather is one of those girls you wont ever forget. And people realize something about living with autism. That it doesn't mean your completely helpless. Heather's got a great modelling career to look forward to.moreless

    Heather is truly the most beautiful girl I have ever seen.

    Apart from that her personality and life story is so amazing she truly should,ve won antm 9. i say all credit to her and wish that she continues to do well in her life. Her art is also very mind grasping.She has such a natural talent and a strong face to model with that when she was sent home it really shocked me. All the best to Heather and i hope she keeps her dream of being a top model because she can make it, she may even be a professional artist someday.moreless
