    I've modelled since I was 2

    and a half. However, I feel pressured into it....I want to do something more courages and ambitious, something, more, well, ME...different. My mother especially doesn't want me to give up...it's like she didn't make it big enough in her day! My agent says I shouldn't give up...

    Been There And Done That...not As Much Fun As It Looks.

    I like the attention my body gets me, but a model! There would be no way...just think its kind of stupid! I was a model for a bit when I was 14, I only did one shoot and hated it. I had to model some beach wear. They did it early in the morning (something about the lighting...

    I've Actually Given This Some Thought

    And I don't think its a path that I'd ever want to go down. Not because I'm condemning the fashion industry or modeling in general, but because I can't see myself ever being ok with acting as someone's blank canvas. Too much of my personality and life have centered on...

    I modeled. And let me tell you, it sucks. I worried about my weight, of course, but that wasn't what got me down. It was that I had to become paranoid and protect myself at every turn. There was an atmosphere of scam and hustle in everything. Free headshots! (if you work for free...

    Not Meant For It.

    I modeled at this show once for a local designer in DC a few years ago.  It was at a club.  I was nervous as hell...even after the vodka I had before going on stage, I was still nervous.  I can't stand being in the spotlight and I only agreed to do it because I...

    No Model

    As a teen, people have told me to go into modeling and I had thought about it and wanted to go for it but I haven't ended up in that direction.  I chose not to.  Don't get me wrong, I like models.  What I don't like is our society gives out the wrong image to us all especially...
