Vee, Naturally!

Hello everyone and Happy Winter Solstice!

My name is Vee and I am so honored to have been chosen to compete in the Miss Nappturality Contest. Who would have ever thought that the thing that use to cause me so much discomfort and embarrassment would also one day be the very thing to bring me full circle with discovering who I am, and learning to love myself just as I am?     I'm truly thankful.

The experience of both the results and the process was exhilarating.
