St. Petersburg’s Ingrid Magnani is one of the finalists for Macy’s “Million Dollar Makeover with Clinton Kelly.” She is one of eight women vying for the chance to win $1 million worth of products, services, cash and experiences that will transform her life. And she will receive the makeover from America’s favorite style guru, Clinton Kelly, Macy’s style expert and co-host of TLC’s “What Not to Wear.”
Magnani, 35, was selected among the thousands of applicants for her inspirational story. Magnani suffered from an abusive childhood, a bout with thyroid cancer and an ongoing battle with Crohn’s disease, but she refuses to give up. She put herself through an Ivy League engineering school and has opened her own construction business.
Magnani says she hopes this makeover will help her reach a sense of self-worth and free her from debt so that she can give back more to those in need.
In order for Ingrid to win, she needs the communities support. You can vote for Magnani through March 13 by going to Macy’s Facebook page. So vote, vote, vote for Magnani.
