Rajee Narinesingh is on a journey with lots of ups and downs. People all over the world know her face and the story behind it thanks to the reality TV show Botched.
“People all over the world contacted me,” she said. “Not only LGBT people, all walks of life, different races, classes and ages.”
Narinesingh was injected with cement in her cheeks, chin and lips more than a decade ago. Since then, she’s been on a mission to prove that beauty is more than skin deep.
“I know that beauty is within,” Narinesingh told SFGN. “People connect with my essence. What is really important is my spirit and the way I touch people.”
Narinesingh uses the platform given to her from reality TV to help those who feel helpless and hopeless. She turned the lemons given to her in life into lemonade by public speaking and advocating for the LGBT community, especially young people.
“My activism has gone full force in the last 18 years,” she said.
Looking ahead, Narinesingh has many new projects on the horizon, including a new film role and a new relationship working with a treatment center to help spread her message of empowerment.
