Woman Drops Staggering $50k To Look Like FLOTUS

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but some folks take that to the extreme. We could include this woman in that category, but there’s a lot more than meets the eye. As the Daily Mail shares, 42-year-old Claudia Sierra from Houston, Texas has spent a whopping $50,000 to transform her appearance to resemble that of First Lady Melania Trump.

So why the fascination with FLOTUS? To understand that, you need to take a look at the complete picture here. Sierra is a cancer survivor, and she’s suffered from low self-esteem that has been exacerbated by the bullying she went through as a child.

“Since I was a young girl, I was made fun of for the colour of my skin, nose, hair and everything, I was different from everybody else. I remember as a child I would scotch tape the tip of my nose to my forehead because I wanted a nose like all of the other girls,” she recalled. “Despite my parents telling me I looked beautiful, I would get into the bathtub and try to lighten my skin by scrubbing it with a loofah, because all the girls I knew had lighter complexions.”

For her, the final straw came this year. She had an extremely uncomfortable situation that inspired her to dramatically alter her appearance.

“This year when I was dating a man, he asked me for my driver's license, when I gave it to him he told me I looked a lot older than 41-years-old and that was the last straw. That was the first date I had since cancer, it broke me apart, I knew I wanted to change everything about myself and have had around $50,000 worth of surgery now,” she adds. “I had a broken nose from domestic violence fixed, my cheeks pulled back, breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, ab sculpt, Brazilian butt lift liposuction and more. Then hair extensions, blue eye contacts, my teeth fixed, a personal trainer, spray tan, my nails done, facials to tighten my pores and laser surgery to remove scarring it's a full transformation.”

She has long admired the appearance of the First Lady from afar, and that led her to use her for inspiration. The results are nothing short of amazing. As for those that may feel it’s overkill, the way Sierra feels about things now should help them place things in perspective.

“I have so much more confidence and self-esteem now, I feel like I could approach anyone to talk to them, especially those who used to insult me.I definitely turn heads, I get looked at and look like a different person, I feel so good about myself now,” Sierra said. “Now I'm going to show the world who I am and I'm starting an anti-bullying movement to speak to children, parents and people to help them overcome it. Whether it's bullying face to face or cyberbullying there are a lot of people hurt by this, with some taking their lives, it has to stop.”
