"Today, as a part of the #beautifulwarriors movement, I share with you a truth about me that is very personal but it goes to show that we all have flaws, insecurities, challenges and internal issues.
Behind the makeup, nice clothes and smiles, for the past two years I have dealt with a lot of emotional pain. I was dealing with so much that I decided I need to seek the help if a therapist. Many people hear the word "therapist" and equate it to a person being depressed or crazy. I was neither of those but I knew I needed professional guidance and coaching through some of the things I was dealing with. My attitude, my words and my broken spirit were causing me so much turmoil. With much prayer and the help of my therapist, I have been able to overcome those obstacles that held me down for so long! While I am still a work in progress, with God and time, all wounds do heal. So for those of you dealing with internal battles, I have been there and you are not alone!"

Six months ago we came up with a concept of "warriors" as a theme for a photoshoot for Sunbella because, let's be honest; you need to have courage to carry a parasol (regardless of how stylish it is) and it is essentially a shield that can prevent some skin cancer battles.
