What agencies have you been in contact through MODELS.com?
After about a week (maybe two) I was contacted by SVM NY.

What was your experience with them?
Not sure yet, but we are setting up a meeting in the next month (fingers crossed)

How did you become interested in modeling?
I have always been interested in the fashion industry in general. In all honesty though, I think I decided I had to do something in the industry was when I saw George Micheal's "Freedom" video, it defines Fabulous-ness!

I was later approached by a scout, and since then have booked as many shoots as I can.

What advice would you have for other aspiring models trying to get noticed by these agents?
Get rid of the diva attitude. This industry is about constant learning, do so through your shoots! Be persistent, when you're starting out, you'll face more rejection than acceptance, but if you really want to model, patience is the key.
