"by being moved I exert my empire,
making the dreams of night real:
into my body at the bottom of the water
I attract the beyonds of mirrors…”

excerpt from Water Lily by Rainer Maria Rilke

Laura Dore Bio:

As she got older, she started to break out of her shell by taking part in the school orchestra with the violin being her instrument of choice, and also by becoming a member of the swim team. Always a skinny girl, Laura grew more into her body by the time she was eighteen years old, and figured that working out would be a great way to keep her body in perfect shape.

By the time she was twenty-one, working out was a way of life. At first she contemplated on entering fitness competitions, but her curvaceous figure didn’t fit the criteria. During NBA All-Star Weekend back in 2006, Laura decided to enter a model competition in order to gain access to all major events taking place. The show never materialized, but needless to say she ended up getting discovered in spite of it. Laura’s parents are off African-American, Brazilian, Italian and Polish descent.
