Me? A model?


[[CLICK TO ENLARGE]]




I am very, very skinny. Almost freakishly skinny. I've been this way almost my entire life. It's in my genes; I have a very fast metabolism. I eat and eat and eat and hardly exercise, and I just stay skinny, underweight, and tall. You might be thinking 'Wow, she is so lucky!' This isn't really the case.

I am often mistaken for someone who is anorexic. People don't seem to understand that it is possible to be so tall and thin without doing anything, so they make things up. I am not anorexic, or bulimic or anything like that. It is actually quite the opposite. I eat sooo much, and hardly exercise.

For the past two years or so, I have also been mistaken for a model. Almost everywhere I go, people say, 'Wow, you should be a model!' or 'You look like a model!' Sometimes, I even get stopped on the streets and asked 'Are you a model??' Well, for the first time ever, there is a possibility that the answer will be yes.

On Sunday night I was at a Teen Club Night in New York City, where I was scouted by someone from Elite Model Management. I have an appointment this week!! They told me that I didn't need to bring anything, but I have a feeling that they are going to measure me, take polaroids, and ask me to walk, so I am practicing! I am really excited and nervous, but not very optimistic. I don't know if they will be able to work with my schedule. I am going to be away for almost the entire summer...and my parents are strong on my schoolwork, so I would have to be hired for times where I wouldn't have to miss a lot of school.

I don't really know what to think...good opportunities like this hardly ever happened to me, and I dont want to get my hopes up for something that potentially will disappoint me. I thought that in honor of this event, I will show you guys some photos in which I look 'model-esque'. Enjoy, and wish me luck! I will keep you all updated!

Yo man shut up, you have more opportunities I'd kill for then I can count on my fingers.... hello, TV? Cousin? Honestly woman you have the world handed to you on a platter xD I think it's awesome though and you know I'm hella proud of you for it!

You MUST call me the moment you're done and give me a play by play or ill kill you. I will track you down at field day...

By the way the new pictures, you look beautiful.

You could absolutely be a model! 2 things, though: if they ask you to pay for portfolio pictures, or want you to sit with their photographer, walk away!!! If they ask you to lose weight, walk away!!! And modeling is good if it's a means to an end, use it, don't let it use you. Also, if you get the job, make sure all your parents and friends are there to support you because it can be an industry where people get taken advantage of/chewed up/spit out in a big way!

Good luck at your interview! This could be the start of a very exciting new chapter!

Good luck with the modeling opportunity. I think it sounds amazing. I know what you mean about the skinny gene. I'm not nearly as tall as you but I've been super skinny my whole life and hate exercise. I even had a doctor accuse me of being anorexic one time. Um, no! Consider yourself blessed!

i used to get the same thing as a teenager. was so skinny and ate so much junk, though was forced to do sport a bit at school so that probably helped. i put on some weight when i got older, though i still get the odd annoying comment.

that's amazing about your modelling opportunity. you totally look like you could model and i hope it comes to something for you.
