The Shadow of Me
This is a descriptive narrative of a child with learning disabilities who overcame the odds of dyslexia with determination and the grace of one teacher. Her adopted mother did not believe she was a “slow child” and got the proper teachers, doctors, and schooling she needed. Having gone through the cruelty of bullying as a child and growing into a young woman with dreams, she entered beauty contests and pageants. After a short acting career, she became a teacher for models and actors and has since then had a well-established business as a sought-after makeup and beauty consultant for Elizabeth Arden.
