I didn’t know what modeling was.
But listen, I actually recycle, and I actually drive a hybrid!
I was really curious about what the industry was about, so I started flipping through fashion magazines to find out.
With modeling, you are judged on your looks. It’s easy to take that personally, but you have to realize that it’s only your appearance that’s being judged, not you as a whole. If you didn’t, you’d be destroyed.
Boys ignored me. I never thought I was gorgeous.
