It is really weird to try to break into an industry where you literally fit into nothing.
Too short for runway. Too thin for plus size. Too fat for fashion. Too feisty for egotistical photographers. Too ugly for certain publications.
At this point I have heard all of that and then some. At 27 it is no easy task to break into a world of 19 year old glamazons who naw on In and Out then storm the runways in a bikini that is a size 0.
Some people ask me what keeps me going and honestly at this point it is all for the creativity of it. I enjoy envisioning a set with a photographer and putting together looks that make it come to life. Making my body into the art that I draw.
While I certainly am not living my life off of the modeling money- I will damn sure keep trying to create a mold for the girls who are like me- average and ambitious, who take a mean picture!! And all the haters can suck it!
