What advice would you have for other aspiring models trying to get noticed by these agents?
To all other aspiring models I would say to be true to your self because people respect genuineness. Also don't wait for agents to contact you. Email your portfolio out and also if agencies do not except email then go to an open call or mail them your photos.

How did you become interested in modeling?
Ever since my freshman year in high school my friends, and people I have come into contact with have always urged me to give it a try. So once I looked into what modeling was all about I decided that it was something I wanted to dedicate myself to.

What agencies have you been in contact through MODELS.com?
I just became a member of models.com and so far Request models and Directions USA have not only contacted me, but I have had a meeting with both.

What was your experience with them?
I flew to NY by the request of Gaspard from Request and we met. It went fantastic. He left for Paris and said that he would be in contact with me when he returns. I also met with Directions and they offered me a contract for North and South Carolina. I signed and have just recently rapped up a commercial. I can still sign with Request for representation and I am looking forward to that opportunity.
