To be honest, I never thought I was model material. Growing up, I never thought of myself as conventionally beautiful, and my perception of modeling from the media made me think that super-human looks were a requirement. I also thought models had to be a level of thin that my body could not healthily sustain. I had never known anyone who modeled so the industry was a total mystery to me. I had no idea how to begin and at 21, I was probably too old to even start, right?
All those inhibiting mindsets were wrong! I’ve been surprised and thrilled to find through my journey that there is a place in the industry for women like me.
So how did I get started?
