I’m Looking To Start Modeling, Point Me In The Right Direction.

I’m Looking To Start Modeling, Point Me In The Right Direction.

So For Years I’ve Procrastinated With Modeling, Because Of The Lack Of Support Growing Up Aside From Proper Resources. I’ve Been Told On Plenty Occasions That I Have A Unique Look, And How I Should Pursue A Career In Modeling But For Me It’s Just Been Easier Said Than Done! The Few Times I Actually Mustered Up The Energy To Go For It, I’ve Been Bamboozled Which Causes A lot Of Discouragement For Me. Lately I’ve Been Responding To Ads Looking For Models On Instagram And Feel It Was No Leads At All Just Scams Or Waste Of My Time. One Agency Did However Call Me In For A Face To Face And Asked Me To Come Into To Their Office And I Did With No Procrastination Nor Hesitation. I Was Really Excited Prior To My Interview Because I Took The Time To Look Them Up, And Read Some Really Great Reviews On Third Party Sites. They Asked Me To Come To My Meeting With Them Dressed Casual, Casual To Me Is My Everyday Look Dressed As A Tom Boy Lmfaooo. So I Decided To Google Casual Looks, And Ran To The GAP The Day Of The Meeting To Purchase A Similar Look I Seen On Google. I Picked Out A Plain White Shirt, Blue Jeans Without Rips And A Blue Sweater With No Buttons. I Ran Home To Shower And Threw On A Black Lace Frontal That Goes Past My Chin And Put A Few Pins On Both Sides Of The Front Almost Like I Was Doing A Doobie Wrap, And Put Only My Old Platform Checkered Vans And Sealed My Looked With My Red Leather Jacket w/ Safety Pins That My Boyfriend Designed For Me And My Shades That Everyone Stops Me For lol. I Got Down To The Location Of The Meeting On Time, Plus The Location Was Super Easy To Locate Since I’m Really Familiar With Manhattan Because Not Only Were The Schools I Went To Was In Manhattan, But Most Of The Jobs I’ve Held Were In Manhattan. The Door Man Of The Building Wasn’t Very Greeting, He Was A Chubby Black Man With Glasses Who Seemed To Not Want To Be At Work At The Time! I Entered The Building With A “Hello, What Floor Is The Modeling Agency On?”, And Before He Would Answer My Question He Wanted To Take My Temperature First For COVID-19 Building Entry Protocol. I Was Fine With That Because Safety First, But After All That He Was Like I Think It’s On 12 I’m Not Sure. Like What? Aren’t You Security, Aren’t You Suppose To Direct Any Guests Who Has Questions Regarding What Business Is On What Floor? Bottom Line, That Creep Sent Me To The Wrong Floor So I Had To Wait On That Floor With No One In Sight To Check My Email From This Agency I Came To Meet With To Check If They Put The Floor And Room Number. After Scouring My Latest Emails, Boom I Found It And Pressed The Elevator To Get To My Destination. When I Got There, I Met With Scouting Agent Who Sat With Me Less Than 10 mins And Told Me How Unique My Look Was And Mistaken My Vitiligo For Makeup. Once I Explained How It Wasn’t Make Up, And That It Was My Skin Condition He Complimented Me Again And Said How It Looked Really Nice On Me And How It Fits Me. He Then Went On To Say How His Agency Is Meeting With People They’ve Emailed Briefly To Have A Face To Face And They Will Be Reaching Out To Whoever They Select In Two Weeks If They Feel They Can Get Work For Them And Work With Them. I Left That Meeting Smiling, Because Of His Energy And How He Told Me Twice How Unique My Look Was. This Week Coming Will Make Two Weeks, And I am Remaining Optimistic About A Call Back From That Agency. However, I Want To Get The Ball Rolling So My Goal For The Next Few Months Is To Do More Research In This Career Field And To Continue To Apply And Reach Out To More Agencies To Get Closer To Accomplishing That Goal, I Will Be On The Next Cover Of A Major Magazine Period!
