The Randomness

A long time coming….Honda Tuning Magazine April 2010

I can remember the days as a teenager reading all the automotive magazines. I knew back then one day I would be taken seriously, and perhaps see one of my own in one of these publications . It was never a goal to build a “show car” or a “cover car”… It was my goal to do what I do best, do what I enjoy, what makes me happy, and what keeps me motivated and do it better than the rest. I was always the “girl trying to play with the boys”.. I was doubted, I was clowned, and I was made fun of growing up at times. Why? It started back in elementary school,  I played kickball with the boys and hung out and had a good time with them. I was “accepted”. What was weird about me, was I wasn’t at all your typical “tomboy” as people may call it. I had long blonde hair, manicured nails, and always dressed nicely. I was a spoiled girl, still am to this day. I like my luxury shit. I didn’t care if I broke a nail or tore my designer jeans. It was all for fun, and to be happy! The girls hated me growing up, many still do. I had the best of both worlds. I never once let that get to my head, or used it to my advantage. I have always been into all this for myself. Over the years the kickball court turned into full-blown street racing, and eventually to the track. Life has had its ups and downs, but im still here doing what I do! I am so greatful for what life has given me, and for the great friends and family I have around me. I thank everyone here today thats been here from the very beginning. Thank you!

This is by far a great article by Joey Lee (stickydiljoe.com) and a great set of photos by Stunna Ben Howard! Be sure to support the magazine, and grab the newest issue on stands next week!

    I think I will, for all those days when I wonder if I’ll ever get anywhere with this. 🙂 Really, thanks for writing this and all that jazz. For a girl like me, it’s comforting to hear someone else went through the same thing. (I was totally the same way in elementary school, minus the spoiled bit lol.) Gives me hope, and I do need to remember I haven’t been doing this for too long either, ha.
