True crazy story of my life:
When I was little and lived in Dominican Republic, every night I used to sit on the balcony next to my grandma, stare at the night sky and literally cry to God and asked Him desperately to make my dreams come true of losing weight and becoming a model... I mean, seriously I cried every night, I'd be mad and desperate. Then I became a teenager and continued crying out to God, but these times now from my mom's balcony.
I can't put it in words, but I had an amazing burning desire inside of me of becoming a working, paid model and actress.
I wanted to inspire women around the world and thought it would never be possible because I was overweight and didn't know how to even get started and coming to America and make that a reality was something impossible to reach in my mind.
Now, sometimes I cry, but now is out of crazy GRATITUDE TO GOD! Today as I look at this picture, it's so surreal to see that I am living my dreams and they're better than I wished for!
Not only did I lose the weight and got signed by the top commercial print agencies in NYC, the capital of the world, but made a living landing many jobs as a commercial print Model and Actress, got featured in top magazines, such as Oprah magazine, magazine covers, commercials, television and films working with some of the top of the entertainment industry. With my God given gifts and talents became a successful entrepreneur with my clothing line and weight loss products with my corporation Jainmy Martinez, Inc. and my website www.MySexyStyles.com
Against every odd in the US anyone can think of, things that if you knew about me would blow your mind,
Against every person that laughed at me and said I was never going to do it mostly in my homeland DR,
Against every person that shot the door on me in my country.
I DID IT AND WILL CONTINUE DOING IT! EVEN BETTER EVERY DAY, NOT BECAUSE I'M ANYTHING SPECIAL, BUT BECAUSE OF GOD'S GRACE AND FAVOR IN MY LIFE, BECAUSE OF THE DIVINE PURPOSE HE HAS FOR IT AND DO THROUGH ME!
All of this wouldn't have been possible without 2 angels God put in my life, that I will forever be thankful to:
My beautiful mother Maria Toribio who never, even for a second doubted my talent and passion and supported me with EVERYTHING, no matter how silly or stupid my dreams sounded, she always pushed me to do it. A human being could not ask for a better mother.
My unconditional best friend forever, sister in Christ and more than my family Karina Merejo, who has always seen in me more than I do, who has always supported me even before I ask her to, always has the right words to help me snap out of any sad moment, trusts me with her eyes closed and would put her hands on fire for me.
Moral of the story:
They say, be careful what you wish for because you just might get it and that is true. You are who your mind and your tongue says who you are. Ask your daddy GOD and do it with FAITH. No matter how silly and stupid you think your dreams are, don't EVER let anyone's words of discouragement affect you in any negative way because that IS in fact satan trying to discourage you from the dreams that God put in your heart, instead use them to give your daddy God the glory because with Him you defeated the devil's purpose and to prove to yourself that you can do it. Don't ever doubt you can do anything. If your children, family or close friends have dreams, support them without conditions because you never know how it can turn around and affect you in a positive way, but first and foremost teach them how the devil operates to defeat them and discourage them from their dreams because the devil and hell are REAL. When life knocks you down, use it as fuel to push you to get to the next level. No matter how broke you are, always be grateful and give back to the needy, TRUST ME, it'll come back multiplied. When your dreams come true and when they still haven't, thank GOD for them every day, because what parent doesn't give their children more than they asked when they see their kids are genuinely thankful? Never stop showing gratitude and appreciation to those who helped you in the most minimal things in the beginning. And to close, NEVER forget where you came from because that is the main tool to keep you grounded and to keep pushing yourself... but above all:
NEVER STOP DREAMING!💪🏼
You might think I'm crazy after reading this long very personal confession of mine to the world, but just TRY IT and see what happens😉
I don't care what anyone wants to judge me for, no one has any authority to do so because I know whose I am and Who I belong to.
THANK YOU AMAZING JESUS FOR YOUR LOVE, GRACE AND FAVOR IN MY LIFE!❤️
