And now my mom wants me to try with the agency that scouted him because it seems really good. obviously they didn't scout me for runway before because I'm only 5"4. But doing things like editorials would be super fun and creative (despite the long hours I'd be so into it!) plus I'd like to save up lots of money for university and I want to move out with my boyfriend! Should I try it out?
my friend's a model and i'd say you have the chops, but keep a few things in mind. most agency's are out to screw you over and will make you sign away most rights to yr shoots etc. so get good counsel or a company with someone you REALLY trust. the other thing is that the industry is brutal; you'll be seen mainly as a money making meatbag, and as a result, lots of harsh things will come yr way: rejection, demand to lose weight (even if you look healthy!), demanding travel. finally, it's very hard to get to a point where you make decent money, but if you get there it's a pretty stable career. it's not sunshine and rainbows though.
If its a viable option and you're willing to take on the stress, invested time, and being the face of something, do it. You seem like you adore the appreciation and recognition.
Do what's good for you and your future. And don't lose yourself. So many people lose who they are just because their job almost requires it. Can't articulate the meaning I'm trying to put out, so I'll stop here lol.
Yes, you should definitely go for it! You are absolutely gorgeous and I'm so jealous haha. Seriously though, I think if you are really willing to put in the time and dedication to do something like this, you should do it! There's nothing holding you back and it seems your mom supports it already! Good luck with everything you do, girl :)
I think you should absolutely go for it. What's to be lost?
Editorial/fashion will be good for you as you are 5'4" Glamour, commericial is also up your alley. Try it out. You might have to pay a certain amount of money to get you started up, and you might not get as much work either. But give it ago.
