Here is Laura’s Story:

This is my friend, Laura. My best friend actually. We have known each other since we were 3 years old. I guess she’s really more of a sister, than a friend!

Laura has an amazing story to tell. Her journey started last year when she decided she wanted to “be healthy”. I had the blessing of being able to capture her amazing spirit, beautiful personality, and contagious smile!

For as long as I have known Laura, she has been challenged with weight fluctuation. Bouncing from size to size, not feeling good about herself, she decided one day to take her life into her own hands and make a difference. I commend Laura for her hard work, dedication, and continual growth towards a better version of herself.

Please help me in cheering on Laura while she continues her journey.

“I needed to change my life for physical and mental health. Through the journey, I have gained health, confidence, strength, and I am amazed at how I can run and play sports. Most of all, I have a lot of hope. Hope for what my future holds and knowing that I did it. I achieved what seemed to be an impossible task, and that I was strong enough to conquer” -Laura Beth
