While battling a diagnosis of Cancer, I was in a very dark place as far as my confidence, self love and was so depressed over my health. I didn't feel sexy, I didn't feel beautiful, heck, I didn't even feel really human. What I did know was I needed to live a little, and do some things on my bucket list. I had seen a burlesque show a few months before and met the fabulous Viva Valezz. She was offering burlesque classes by the equally wonderful Clams Casino so I decided to step out and take the class. I even dressed up for the part because I really needed the boost. Viva, Clams, Bella and many more there were so supportive, and encouraging that I went home with a passion and a renewed sense of confidence. I might be a big girl, I might be an old girl, but I had my sexy back. I practiced, and put together a routine, not thinking I was ever going to do it on stage, but it was mine. I could pretend. Then when Viva asked me if I wanted to perform I soared with anticipation and excitement...and FRIGHT. Fright was not needed, It was love at first step on the stage. For a woman that was making a plan to leave this world, I had a sense of ownership over my sexiness again.
How long have you been performing?
I have been performing with Viva Valezz and the Velvet hearts in Columbus Ohio for almost two years.
What does burlesque mean to you ?
Burlesque, saved my life! It is my creative outlet, a place for me to release all my energy and to encourage girls of size, age, and all the other things we hold ourselve back with, to fly. I love when I see the spark in someone else. I am able to incorporate all of the things I love, from leather and D/s to laughter and comedy.
I live in Ohio, Its my home, and I am excited to represent it!
Describe your self in one word?
Well, of Course....Colorful!
