My little sister is one of those people who has talent in spades, but doesn't recognize it and is rarely acknowledged for it. She doesn't have a lot of confidence in herself, but she should! Recently I pushed her into entering a contest for Phantom Las Vegas where they asked people to submit their best masquerade costumes. She has this AMAZING hand-carved dragon mask that she made herself, and I knew she had to enter it.
Here's the thing...the contest isn't being determined by judges--it's all by voting. My sister is quiet and shy, so she doesn't have many friends. Not a lot of friends means not a lot of votes. But I would love to see her win this thing! Not just for the prize, but because I think this would be a great boost to her confidence and might help her recognize how incredibly talented she is. And trust me, if you knew her and knew what an innately good person she is, you'd want her to win, too. If you can spare a few moments of your time to vote for her, I would so appreciate it! And if you wouldn't mind sharing so others can vote as well, that would be awesome.
The vote is daily, through a Facebook app:
Thank you all sooo much!
