Hi! First off, welcome to Model Positive! I created this website in hopes for more models and photographers in the area to connect and hopefully book gigs. I invite and welcome beginners as well as experienced talent to join the website, because I like to give advice to those looking to start out in the modeling industry. I started off modeling on my own for multiple years before signing with an agency. It's never easy starting out and booking your own gigs, but I'm hoping my advice to you and what I did starting out can help you lead toward your goals. I'm a commercial and swimsuit/fitness model at a height of 5'3. A lot of people think that models are suppose to be 5'8 plus (which is true for Fashion Runway), but that doesn't mean you still can't be a model in commercial! My favorite quote I like to share with everyone is, "If you believe you can, you're already half way there."- Theodore Roosevelt
