Happy Anniversary Dream Big! The long awaited moment has arrived for me, and for all of you out there as well. I have to say to myself that I'm so proud to have made it this far, and I hope that I can keep up this momentum until the moment I can say "I finally made it". And I would not have made it this far without the support of the fans, my Dream Team, and my kids; if it weren't for all of you, I wouldn't be sitting here today writing this right now.
First, I want to thank all the photographers that I've ever worked with; if it weren't for you I'm not sure if any of this would have been possible. I never would have wanted to become a model had you not shown that I could be beautiful in others eyes, or even in my own, and I wouldn't have had the confidence to take things to the next level to become an actress. I would have never made it into magazines, or have gotten the attention of casting directors, and I want you to know that I am humbly indebted to you all. Thank you.
I have also made a lot of sacrifices that only family can comprehend, and I want to thank mine as well for putting up with my mood swings, the financial hardships, and the long hours I spent working on trying to get my career started. Finally, I want to thank you for pushing me forward when my heart was heavy with the sadness that I would never make it. Thank you with all the love a mother has to offer.
The last thing I would like to say before you watch the wonderfully edited video you are about to see, is that no matter how far down I have become I have had others who have been there for me who refused to let me give up. They have been there to wipe away my tears, have been there when I had my achievements, and have shown me that I am more than the person I once was, and for that I am truly grateful. I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The 100th Dream Big holds so much meaning for me that even my own words cannot describe, but I hope that you have enjoyed reading, listening, and watching what Dream Big has stood for to me and to others like me who are dreaming big. Blessed Be to all of you, and thank you for supporting our dreams.
I have come too far to let my dreams go without a fight, to see it through to the end, and I know its a dream, but I'm going to dream big.
