Why should people vote for you?

To be honest, winning this would mean quite a lot to me. I will spare you a very long sob story filled with self pity and doubt but let's just say, nothing has ever come easily for me. I have had to work hard for just about everything I ever received and I definitely intend to make 2014 a year of action. I want to really push to put my webcomic Mockery and Vodka on the map as well as accomplish several other artistic goals I have planned. This vote of confidence would make my heart soar and instill in me that I am deserving of something and that what I am doing really matters to others.
