I have no control over my life.
I’ve been modeling for over 10 years now. When I started I was head strong and have always played the game very safe.
I am professional on set, I stay in shape, I am not wreckless with my money, this is my career and I am aware of it. I have to work a lot harder as I get older, but I also have the experience behind me which puts me ahead.
However two years into my work I realize that no matter how sensible I was with my career, I actually had no control of it in the end.
As a model It’s the only industry where you can have everything it takes, but in order to get there you have to submit yourself to someone else in order to make your dreams happen. Your agent.
I’ve heard some horror stories about greedy agents, some who are bitter and vindictive, others who take advantage of girls finances and some who offer heavily unhealthy advice. That’s an issue, yes, but it’s not entirely what I mean by submitting your control.
They have the ability to make or break your dreams – and there really isn’t much you are able to do about it.
