is the winner of BOND Inc's
1st Annual Mother’s Day Makeover Contest
Carleen's Reaction to Winning...
The makeover was an exciting moment which consisted of a make-over by a makeup artist, wardrobe and glamour shots. I felt it was a very special day, which made me feel special and appreciated. The makeover has made me realize that I have neglected myself and showed me the importance of self-appreciation by routinely getting massages or manicures. I must admit that no one had ever done something this nice for me. Therefore, I feel blessed to be nominated.
I would like to extend my gratitude and appreciation to Ms. Nayvette, the founder of BOND, for bringing this event to fruition. She is a visionary who realized the need for an organization such as BOND. The organization recognizes hard working females by giving them an outlet to help relieve stress, and uplift their spirits.
I also want to thank my cousin, Rachel, for thinking highly of me and making this special day possible.
Nomination written by Carleen's cousin Rachel Joy:
Today she is raising two daughters as a single mother. Although a bit tarnished by the rough waters of life, she still stands resilient. I would like her to win this contest because she rarely does anything for herself. Since having her first child as a teenager, she has always worked solely to support her children. I think this Mother's Day Makeover will be a special treat for a truly special woman.
