Answering a Reader Question #171

Hi Dania!
When you attend a model search or open call where they simply say, "tell me about your self", what should you say? Thanks!

Hi, Anonymous! It is best to keep your answer simple. You can talk about topics, such as:
  • Where you're from (hometown)
  • The name of your school and what grade you're in
  • Your favorite hobbies or any special skills you have
  • What your plans are for the future (college, dream job/career)
If you want to talk about why you want to be a model, keep this info brief and not the whole topic of discussion. Agencies hear a lot of the same types of stories so you want to be different. It's okay to talk about who your modeling inspirations are or what got you interested in modeling but move on and talk more about who "you" are as a person. That is what agencies are interested in.

As long as you answer with a genuine smile, great eye contract and enthusiasm, you'll do just fine!
