My passion for fashion

I'm 16 and I have been interested in fashion, modeling, and performing for several years. My fascination with fashion began after I took part in a beauty pageant when I was about eleven. I loved being in front of crowds and performing for them. So I decided this was the right path for me.

A few weeks after I participated in the pageant, a modeling and acting school in Chicago called me for an audition. I was accepted as a student at the school, and I soon began learning how to walk on the runway, perform, apply makeup, and do my hair. My passion became more and more intense, as I learned about the business.

When I was thirteen, a group of us from the school went to New York to compete at IMTA (International Modeling and Talent Association). It was amazing. It gave me confidence, experience, and excitement.
