Compassionate, optimistic, friendly, artistic, a dreamer, and a hopeless romantic. I am Jorge Ramos; a 23-year-old Hispanic boy born and raised in the city of angels. I aspire to inspire, encourage others to love themselves, and express individuality through fashion and style. Having been born in such a fast paced environment, I learned it is very easy to lose yourself when there is unforeseen negativity and decadent temptation.
Over the years I have managed to overcome the countless obstacles and emotional roller coaster we know as life. Though it is a never ending ride, I have also learned that as long as you remain true to yourself and stand up for what you believe in, the highs and lows of life are simply part of being human. I am a writer, a dancer, a fitness addict & runner, and a great admirer of the beauty and fashion industry.
I am currently a student at the Toni & Guy Academy and am on route towards a fulfilling career and life as a licensed cosmetologist. Through the course of my career I truly hope I can be influential enough to help others find and love themselves for who they are. Like many of my fellow #LGBT community members, I was bullied both verbally and physically for quite some time. It left many emotional scars on me; kept me afraid of breaking free and being the person I know I truly am.
In such a cold world, it is so easy to spread hate and see the differences amongst the human race. However, if you truly take the time to step back and open yourself up to new opportunities and opinions, you will find that there are more similarities than differences between us. This is just the start of my journey, and I hope you can all join me in my efforts to spread love and end hate.
