Pretty self-explanatory, these photos are headshots, selfies, and video stills from my YouTube videos.
From the ages of 9 to 12, the kids at my school told every day that I should kill myself because I was ugly — weird hair color, pale skin, freckles, weird eye color, a gap in my upper front teeth color, along with a muscular Irish build the kids interpreted as “fat”. I always hated having my picture taken except for theatre where I was playing someone (anyone!) other than myself. I never smiled in photos because of my teeth. Getting the gap fixed helped considerably, but weight gain after I had my daughter made me very self-conscious of my body.
Now, I really don’t care. I take selfies all the time to make up for the years I hid from a camera because I still believed those asshole — kids that my being dead was better than taking up space in their universe.
