My fan boy, as he claims himself (and I would say my biggest fan), bought my autographs back in 2019. He sent me this, showing that he framed my photo on his office desk! How sweet of him. It makes me happy how much he appreciates me and my craft.

To be frank, never in a million years would have I imagined someone buying my autographs! I was very surprised when Tyler (from Colorado, US) messaged me saying how much of a big fan he is and wanted to buy my signed prints. At first, I hesitated because he is all the way on the other side of the world, so shipping would be expensive. Even if the shipping rate was expensive, he still wanted to get them so I sent them to him.

Tyler got 10 signed prints and it was life-changing!

In the words of one of my favorite artists, Lady Gaga, “There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole lifeā€¦” Tyler was that one who always believed in me and he changed my life. I did not really believe in my modeling before, feeling like, “Who on Earth would pay for my signatures?” but he showed me the possibilities. From then on, I started making signed prints available to fans for purchase.

To Tyler, thank you for always pushing me to do my best and for your undying support for me. You have been there through my ups and downs, even if we never met in real life. Words can never be enough for me to express how much you mean to me.

I have massive gratitude to everyone who supports me, especially Tyler! If it wasn’t for all of you, I wouldn’t have continued this journey of mine. To every single one of you have booked me to model, purchased photosets, sent PayPal gifts, thank you very much! I also would like to thank those who always motivate me by sending sweet and encouraging messages. To those who always engage with my online activities by liking, commenting on, and sharing my posts, a huge thank you, as well! The engagements you do with me online increase my reach and they help me get more people to support what I do.

With all the love,
