Its been done, but is it realistic? I am guessing you would have to be tiny (like 30-23-33)and have a killer face, no? Any input?
Love this. It's a really excellent point. As is this:She has always had a natural gift in science. When she was a girl, she was passionate about it. She never developed that natural inclination and will never know what she could have brought to the world. She just wants to be famous….and so does her family.
if you have resources and support to go to school or move to a city you love, do it; how much nicer is it to be the hottest lawyer rather than a stumpy model?
Not to be mean but I think it is hardly the "dream" is to be modeling cable-knit sweaters in sea green, apple, asparagus, and china blue. Isn't it Dior or editorials? You make a couple hundred an hour commercial modelling but why it would be anyone's "dream" is ludicrous.I absolutely agree that it's not very realistic to be a model at 5'7.
But I still disagree with most of you girls on this one.
Is being a model your biggest dream? Would you do everything to become a model? Would you rather be a commercial catalog model than no model?
If your answer to all of these questions is yes, go ahead and try it. Be prepared to get rejected, but try it nevertheless.
There's nothing worse than a dream you haven't even tried to make reality.
(That being said, don't let this get in the way of another more promising career. When in doubt, choose excellence over mediocrity.)
Definitely agree with this. It's a nice sentiment, but in my opinion, you're not doing anyone any favours telling them to chase unrealistic dreams.Not to be mean but I think it is hardly the "dream" is to be modeling cable-knit sweaters in sea green, apple, asparagus, and china blue.

Amanda Norgaard is 5'6 (despite what her agencies say) and is still modelling full time. 7 years and counting.Say you, by some crazy, incredible stroke of luck, do manage to become a HF model at 5'7. Okay, what now? No one wants to book the stumpy 5'7 model if there's a taller girl with similar measurements. You would have to bust your ass to get any work, and you can't even enjoy the job because you're so busy trying to overcompensate for the fact that you're shorter than 99% of the other girls. So you've just wasted the best years of your life on some unfulfillling pipe dream, when you could've found a way into the industry that didn't involve meeting a very strict criteria.
Oh they love that I am a model (or telling people I am) but help me in no way--I am not a minority here, though, most other girls parents **can't** help them and are trying to bring in money for the family.I'm really sorry about this.
I do hope your parents in some way come around to your work. Or, at least, that it is important to YOU, even if it is not to them.
