Just Because You're Short, Doesn't Mean You Can't Model!

Probably one of the most annoying things I read and hear when it comes to who can be a model is how people automatically think that if you're not 5'7"+, you can't model and may as well give up. That's a stupid way to think and I hope that view changes.

There is more to modeling than fashion and runway. Sure, it looks glamorous but it really isn't. And for girls who aren't tall enough, that doesn't mean you need to throw in the towel. Commercial/print modeling, petite and plus-size models are all models within their own right and I hate how so many people dismiss these categories of modeling.

Commercial/print models are in more demand than fashion models and is a legit and great way of getting exposure. For the young girls out there who pray every night to get taller, don't stress yourself so much. Don't count commercial/print modeling out. Besides, why would you want to lead a life where you have to limit yourself and stay in constant fear of stepping on the scale?

If you want to model and be able to be yourself, please opt for one of the other modeling fields I mentioned above. These kind of models don't have to deal with strict weight and height requirements and stress maintaining a healthy weight. It's the best step you can take towards a modeling career and towards a healthy life.
