Why I Wrote a Book to Help Models with Their Journeys
As a model, I understand the excitement and passion of pursuing a career in this industry. However, I also appreciate the struggles and hardships that come along with it. I started from nothing, being homeless and facing many obstacles as a person of color. I fell into scams and dangerous situations, like photographers asking me to take off my clothes or scam artists trying to make me pay for an agency's contract and be on their fake magazine's cover.
Through my own experiences, I realized the need for a guide to help young models navigate this complex and often overwhelming industry. I wanted to create awareness for girls so they wouldn't fall into the same traps I did and not feel shame in their life. I also liked girls to know they are beautiful the way they are and that they need to know that.
In my book, I share my personal story and the lessons I learned. I also provide tips on identifying and avoiding scams, building a solid portfolio, marketing oneself effectively, and handling the modeling world's ups and downs. My goal is to empower young models and help them confidently navigate the industry, so they can focus on their passion for modeling and achieve their dreams.
Anyone can succeed in the modeling industry with the right tools and support. My book is a testament to that belief, and I hope it will inspire and encourage others to pursue their passions and follow their dreams, no matter their obstacles.
In conclusion, I wrote this book to help young models with their journeys. I hope it will serve as a source of inspiration and guidance and help them avoid the traps and dangers I faced in my journey. Remember, you are beautiful the way you are, and it's essential to believe in yourself and never give up on your dreams.
