"I wanna be a model", that is almost each and every teenagers line. Being a successful high fashion runway model requires much more than just drop-dead gorgeous looks. You need to have all that and more : Passion. Some people are able to overcome half of the things they go through to be exactly that "a human mannequin".

8. Any words of advice for young ones who want to pursue modeling...
My word of advice would be - in everything you do aim to be the best. It may feel like a competitive world but that shouldn't be the reason why you should ever stop chasing your dreams. It's the fight that makes it worthwhile. I also encourage you to surround yourself with people who are only going to lift you higher. Negative surrounding will always keep you from achieving and becoming what you where meant to be. Last but not least, trust in God, he's your strength and the only person that will always have your back.
