I don't know what you looked like growing up, so can't compare. However, YOU have gorgeous eyes - This is a beautiful headshot, lovely you are as a model. This one, the two "cello" photos and "I'll Wait" are all stunningly beautiful and creative. Don't let other people bring you down, whether they don't see your beauty, creativity, or JUST DON"T GET IT.
I think your work speaks eloquently about you and your inner beauty. This and "I'll Wait" show you are gorgeous inside & out. Bravo
