So first question, a silly and boring one i admit, but tell us how you started modelling ?
S.N : The older sister of my friend from highschool scouted me.
By the way why have you accepted ? Was it for the money mainly when you started ?
S.N : I didn’t really know what it was i accepting when i signed on with my mother agency. for me it was more a case of why not than why. Of course flashing some big dollar signs at a seventeen year old from a small town, will never take away from his interest.
Do you think or would you say it has changed ?
S.N : my motives? I’ve really grown to appreciate the industry for what it is, and what it has to offer. The experience has been an all around positive one, and i have come a long way personally because of it. would i do it for free? No
