A girl who is interested in becoming a model must first accept the fact that she is the product. She must be ready to deal with a lot of rejection.
It's a very hard and competitive business in which you have to fight every day in order to impose yourself.
The beauty comes with the balance. Everyone should find his own balance in his personal as well as his professional life. Once you do so, you will feel and look beautiful.
What I love the most about modeling is that it opens you a lot of different doors of opportunities and takes you to many different places, which then put you in touch with various people and cultures.
