I think every female goes through a ” Model-Wanna-Be-Phase ” at some point in her life.
I went through it when I was 14. I thought if the modeling scouts thought I was pretty , then I really must be ! I think its wise to say that when you’re an adolescent your more prone to self-esteem issues.
I can understand a teenager or even a young woman in her 20’s going through this phase .
I’m not an expert on WHO can model or whose beautiful or whose not. However the word : MODEL seems to be on everyone’s twitter,facebook etc. I just laugh because 90% of these woman are in no way model material ! I think its important for women to know that you don’t need that title to feel like you are attractive or special. You don’t need that title to be HOT . You can be an average jane doe & STILL be considered HOT.You should not feel like you need to get BUTTER BALL NAKED to attract attention.Being half naked on the net does not make you a model .
When I was 15 I was employed by a small modeling agency in charlotte. I also went to the John Casablanca modeling school in Raleigh,NC . I was only 5,5 at the time 135lbs.I knew that I would never be a Tyra Banks because of my height & “look”. The agency was not trying to sell me a dream . Most of these “modeling searches” do just that & take people’s money ! Most shorter,average looking models do print modeling . Parts modeling & hair modeling are also an option. I out grew this phase by age 18 . Being a “Model” is no longer a big deal to me because EVERYBODY says that they are! I don’t wanna be in that lame bunch lol smh . REAL models don’t do most of the attention seeking stuff wanna-bes do . Real models don’t wear make up & have their hair done unless they are doing a job. They have nice fresh skin & healthy hair. Real models don’t shove their occupation down everybody’s throats . They are confident & cool enough to know that’s not necessary . Real models don’t pay for their photo shoots . Real models don’t get butt naked for the world for FREE . Real models don’t complain about how their hair & make up is done when they do a job . Probably because IT’S JUST A JOB. They know they are selling an image or product & getting paid to do this. Real models DO GET AIR BRUSHED & PHOTO SHOPPED . That has been going on since before the rest of the world learned how to do it! You still need the raw material to begin with though .
