2021 Bold Beautiful Perfect: Cissy
“I hope women will understand that they can be strong, independent, powerful, and still be beautiful.”
Tell us about yourself, Cissy!
I’m a retired truck driver, a mother of 4, and a grandmother of 8. I love outdoor activities with my family and friends. I am a born again believer through Jesus Christ, and I try to live by faith in God everyday.
How did you come to understand your inner beauty?
Growing up, I was a tall lanky girl. It was my grandmother and her sisters (all 9 of them) that taught me to always look at the beauty inside of a person (including myself). They taught me that God created me to shine from the inside and that I was wonderfully and beautifully made by Him. They always told me to never lose myself in this world. The older I get, the more I understand it.
What parts of your story can you share to help women to understand their own beauty?
I hope women will understand that they can be strong, independent, powerful, and still be beautiful. We are created with beautiful qualities within. I pray others are inspired to let their beauty shine.
Tell us about your experience with the photo shoot.
It was a wonderful experience. Kasper helped me shine like I never have before. He treated me like royalty. Brandi made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She brought out my inner beauty on her camera that I never noticed before. They were both so encouraging and sincere. I can’t thank them enough for making me feel extra beautiful. I felt even more confident about myself after the photo shoot than when I first walked through the door.
I feel blessed that I was chosen to participate in this adventure. I’m honored that my story is worth sharing with other women who feel the same way I do. I pray that it encourages other women to recognize their own beauty!
To all the ladies who read this:
Remember, you are beautiful inside and out. Always let your beauty shine. Never lose yourself in this world. Be proud to be a woman.
You are more beautiful than you know!
