I'm so thankful my friend, Turner, shared this video on my Facebook wall. Model, Cameron Russell, only speaks in this video for a little under 10 minutes but everything she says was so profound and moving that I couldn't help but share it here with my readers.
Young ladies (and gentlemen), really listen to her perspective and the experiences she's had and why they play a part in how she perceives the modeling industry. It's 100% truth and isn't meant to downplay or discourage anyone from pursuing modeling but it does shed a lot of reality on an industry that is all-too-often glamorized for the wrong reasons. Just something to keep in mind if you really want to become a professional, working model:
Note: Cameron is a fashion/runway model so her experiences and career stem from those areas of the industry. Because so many aspiring models dream of runways and magazine
covers, this video will definitely apply to individuals with these goals.
The topics she touches on don't necessarily reflect the working experiences of print models, however.
