Hi Sandra,

My name is America, yes thats my real name. I am the youngest of 6 and the only one born in America. I am 24 years old and a single mother of a beautiful son. I have worked in the financial Industry for over 5 yrs and just because you are a business woman doesnt mean you still cant be sexy. I love your blog and it's the first site i visit every morning. I think it is amazing that you give exposure to everyday people. Your morning glory/wood section shows women/men that you dont have to look a certain way to be beautiful/handsome. After thinking about it for a while i decided to just submit my pics to see if i would make the cut. The pictures that i am sending some are professional and some are candid shots that has not been touched up in any type of way. I just want people to see that photoshop doesnt make you look better it only removes your flaws to make you seem perfect. Here i am flaws and all. No one is perfect. Thanks for doing this.
