Desperate to change posture

My mother, who was getting nowhere with constantly reminding me to stand up straight because of my poor posture, enrolled me in private Grace, Poise and Modeling lessons at age 14.  Once a week I traded my basketball shoes for high heeled pumps and had a lady mentor me on how to sit, stand and walk with grace and perfect posture.  After 8-9 months of lessons and practice, I entered and won a contest.  Never again would mama have to nag me!
