  • Quotes

    • Miranda: (Giving advice on modeling) Nothing is easy, especially in modelling. There is an enormous amount of rejection in this industry and you have to be really strong to withstand it. If it is your dream then believe in it and follow it and don't lose sight of yourself in the process. To be your absolute best you need to look after your body, treat it with respect and give your body everything it needs, nutritionally, emotionally and physically. Your body can't shine on the outside unless it is healthy on the inside.

I honestly try to live my life everyday from the point of view of gratitude and appreciation. I practice Nicheren Buddhism, chant regularly, meditate and do yoga regularly. Inner peace and inner beauty is very important to me.
