Angelica Bryant wants to become a fashion model. But if things don’t work out, she’ll be happy being a role model instead.
I had heard it all: “You are so pretty. Have you ever thought about modeling?” Or, “You have the height, shape, and everything.” Finally, a woman I met in middle school actually offered me some advice - so I took the chance. She got me started on what I hope will be my modeling career.
The glamour of wearing fashionable clothes is amazing. On the runway, I can become a whole new person and feel like a star. Everyone looks at me because I’m introducing the newest trend of clothing that they’re just dying to have.
One time I modeled for a clothing company. They put me in all sorts of extravagant dresses. One in particular made me feel like I was on a stage in an old country/ western movie. That was cool.
There are a lot of attractive girls who also want to become models, but don’t plan on getting a college degree. Though, after I had done only a few modeling gigs, I think I became wiser: I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket. I know that I should have a back-up plan. If modeling doesn’t work out, I’ll get a degree in education. Instead of being a fashion model, I could be a role model.
