Cycle 21 has arrived!

Cycle 21!

Cycle 21!

I can't believe this day has finally come!  The premiere of Cycle 21 has arrived and I can hardly contain my excitement.  Mixed along with a mountain of nervousness...  It's weird to think back six months ago when I was just finishing college and trying to figure out what the heck I was going to do with my life.  Let's be real, I had no idea.  Then one week after graduation I got an email asking me to go through the process of being a contestant on America's Next Top Model Cycle 21.  One thing led to another and WABAAM, I got the phone call on January 6th that I would be a semi-finalist on the 21st cycle.  I remember exactly where I was... I was driving home late at night and was about to be back when my phone rang with an LA number.  "Oh $h!#" was all I could think when I answered because I knew who it had to be.  "You're going to be a semifinalist on America's Next Top Model!!!"  I couldn't breath, I couldn't speak, I couldn't think.  Those are three very important things you need to be able to respond to news of that nature.   WELL BLIMEY I had made it!!! 

Now I look back on my experience I had on Top Model and can't believe it has happened.  The two months we spent filming were so worth it and now that I finally get to share with the world it is so surreal.  I also am not looking forward to seeing myself on television.... Something about seeing yourself just makes me feel strange!  But none the less I am thrilled that I can talk about the show and stop holding secrets!!! Then again it will still be a while till all the secrets can be revealed!  

For the premier I was able to have a party back home at my Mom's Dance Studio, Keely Jardell's School of Dance, and all of my family and friends made it out to watch the first episode unfold.  I am so thankful that I got to watch it with all my loved ones around me and it was even more rewarding to hear all of the amazing support I was receiving!  Top Model is no joke and to hear so much positive feedback from everyone around me makes me feel absolutely amazing!
