“I went from not knowing anything to becoming really curious and wanting to know and respecting people in the industry, realizing how hard they work. I will always be thankful for ‘Top Model’ for that.”
“The Broken Bow group is such a great family and seem like a group of tight-knit people. When I looked for a new label, I wanted to feel I could trust everybody. I wanted motivation to be at an all-time high.”
“Basically, I didn’t know anything about fashion. I was very nerdy; I went to Bryn Mawr and never even noticed models when I was 21.”
“I hear a lot of ‘Top Model’ girls say they are dismissed by clients because they recognize them, but it never happened to me.”
“I want people to recognize me for the work I do now as a model, and not something I did three years ago.”
“I want to make a name for myself.”
“Now that I work as a professional model, I advise people to stay away from any television shows. It’s a waste of your time; it’s just entertainment. It’s not the fashion that we now know.”
