I failed to make the BodySpace Spokesmodel semifinals again this year. Nor was I selected for the Muscle and Fitness Cover Model contest. Totaling up 2012, I finished 5th twice, 2nd twice, 4th once, 6th once, and just last month with a 16th place tie for dead last at the Nationals. To be sure in this game of youth and performance enhancing drugs, I am not and don't use them, therefore I must represent the million to one long shot. Life has prepared me well for this though. I was born an underdog. I may be covered with scars, my face may be etched with character lines, yet I remain undaunted. "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:14) Over and over, time and time again, I've learned that the world cannot deny the one who will not quit forever. The harder I squeeze, the sweeter the sweat.
