Answering a Reader Question #187

Blackberry Confessions Wrote:

I know this is an old post however, I stumbled upon your page and thought maybe you have answered a question I’ve asked everyone I’ve come across.

Last year May 17th I got into a car accident and now I have a noticeable scar on my upper left forehead. It’s been a year and I’ve done quite a few shows, some with my scar covered and a few with it out.. I’m 5'8-5'9 (I get told different all the time) 120 lbs love Runway. I returned to nyc in hopes of trying to eliminate free shows from my roster and start only taking on paid assignments. Now I consistently question if I even have a fighting chance? what do you think ? 

Hi, Blackberry Confessions (great name, btw)! I think you're psyching yourself out and analyzing your situation too much, which can throw you off your game. From what you've written, it sounds like you have more than a fighting chance and have already established yourself as a working runway model. Even though you have the scar from your accident, you've stated that you've done quite a few shows. Plus, you have the height and weight so I think you're good to go.

While it's great to get feedback from others, the most important factor is what you think about yourself. If YOU think you have a fighting chance, if YOU know you've got what it takes, if YOU can get the results clients want, then you have no place else to go but up and being that you're in the NYC market, there are plenty of opportunities to jump into. So go for it and don't look back! :-)

hi I was wondering if it's tough to be a model if you have hyperpigmentation. I used to have acne so i have some marks left over, they aren't scars. I'm almost 16 and they are fading slowly but surely.
