I tried everything im not getting in, im 23 and its time to let it go. I spens 3 years, I wasted it. It seems impossible for a black woman to get in, they have to be special, im 5'8 which is not enough, their clearly looking for girls who are taller... it hurts so bad to quit,
How about a career in fashion always have a plan B somethings never go the way we planned. Just have a backup
Modeling is definitely not something you can just jump right into and make a lucrative career out of. There's a looooooooooooot of competition out there, meaning you need to either stand out appearance-wise and dedicate yourself to getting gigs, or have connections. If you're looking to be a runway model you definitely need to be at least 5'10, a size 0/2, with sharp, unique features that stand out.
You could pursue commercial modeling, which has more lenient standards (many commercial models are around 5'8 and don't have to look AS unique as runway models do). But you have to be honest with yourself and question how long you're willing to hustle for this vs. finding a more practical job.
