On Medium, she writes, “I never expected to “strut” down a runway in a fire engine red bikini with as much confidence and honesty as I did, nor did I expect to learn so much about myself in such a short time.”

While Lyrric did not make it to the next round, we’re happy she found herself and gained confidence along the way.
