Courtney strives to bring awareness to the effects of bullying. How you can live and do something positive despite growing up being bullied is a cause she holds near. Courtney supports positivity and nurturing from a young age- proving that with the right message, you can do anything. She is looking forward to visiting high schools in New York City as well as Orange County, NY where she was raised to spread this message.
We believe that confidence and courage are trends that never go out of style. We work with the NSCC and their BullyBust programming to fight bullying nationwide. So when we found out Courtney was taking time to spread this message we all agreed she had to be our next muse of the week! Thank you Courtney for being our Muse of the Week.

4. Favorite quote?

5. Tell us about your last moment you shared with someone?
The last moment I shared with someone was at a Teen Exposure event. A young girl mentioned to me that she wanted to be a model but her parents would never approve of it and her friends would probably make fun of her. And I told her: "Yes we all want to please our parents but we have to please ourselves as well." So try out modeling on the side so you never live with the "what if?" feeling. And as far as your friends go, if they are your real friends they will support you. I keep in contact with her and she is going to model as well as focus on school.
