Ronald, it took me some time to think about it, but I'll say “yes,” because I think DEFIANCE is a beautiful idea. At first I was contemplating whether people would look at me differently, but I don't care what people think anymore. We are a team now and I trust you. I care less about people and their opinions aren't valid to me. DEFIANCE means sexual expressions and confidence, while breaking the cultural barriers that I have been taught my whole life and not being punished for it. The human body is beautiful, I’m not trying to be a rebellious child, just expressing myself in a way I thought I never would. I felt more confident than I ever have been after the shoot was over. DEFIANCE has changed my outlook on nudes. If anyone is thinking about DEFIANCE: I would say, be comfortable in your own skin. I honestly have never felt confident after the shoot; almost free.
