Answering a Reader Question #129
hi ive always wanted to be a model it was the first thing thaypoped up in my head for a job. ive been asked by alot of eople if i was a model and if not i should start, even by my teachers... im 5"7 and 15 this year. i really want yo start modelling now so i can get higher into elite or ford or VS ahhh my dream since maths or english is deffinatly not my thing and i know for sure moddeling is! what should i do?
Hi, Mdeanne, thanks for the question! At your current height you are ideal for commercial/print. Fashion agencies have a minimum height requirement of 5'8" but since you are younger, some of them lower that requirement to 5'6" or 5'7" but it depends on your location and what market you're in.
I would suggest reading the following blog post about how to get started in modeling, which will give you some pointers on what you need to do:
