Note on behalf of Mimmi Boa
" After more then 6 years of dedication I chose to reduce my time in Second Life.
This reduction is actually very drastic and at the moment i don't know when i'll return.
I guess I have nothing more to prove: I spent these years working on trying to fulfill the "little virtual wishes " of many aspiring models but first of all i've tried to help them to find their (real) self confidence.
I decided to close my Academy because i don't have time anymore to follow my models;
My real life is more busy than usual and i couldn't spend hours and hours in front of my pc.I don't have time and energy enough and to follow this job means to be close to the people and follow them with 100% dedication. for this reason and because i want to keep the good name of the Academy in your memories i prefer to close for now.
Despite some "rumours" i am good, i have tons of things to do, i have fun, i am loved and i feel good!
In these years I did my best to be available for all my "pets" and i've never hidden who I am in real life because i am proud of myself and i don't need to hide the real Isabella back the avatar of Mimmi.
In return I received an immeasurable love and i will be grateful to all of you forever.
I would like to say something to you my lil pets one by one, finding the right words for each one of you but is almost impossible because the list of my models, friends, followers is gonna be really long.
Let me say that i love you all and i thank you all from the deeper of my heart for the incredible love and affection i received in these years.
Thank you to trust in me, thank you to put your ( virtual) hopes in my hands, thank you for this incredible experience of life.
Second Life should be the place to spend time with fun, knowing people from all over the world and also the place where you can show out your creativity.
Second Life is a great way to relief and help many people with disabilities and i can tell you that over the years I have met many, many people with really huge problems being able to have fun and being able to smile again because this virtual community!
I learned my models to get rid of gossipps, envy people and divas......
I am conscious some have forgotten the reason why they still exist in SL.
To those who believe they are the "top models"i strongly recommend a bath of humility and especially to remember who helped them to be where they are!
Second Life was a great journey and i thank you my virtual sis, friends, designers, agencies, media ecc..ecc.. for the incredible love and support.
I'm gonna miss you all but now i have other priorities.
This is not goodbye, it's just a "see you soon"......( sooner......or later.......)
