hi diana! my names Kayla, and okay so, i have ALWAYS wanted to be a model ever since i was little..My dream job would be a VS model but i know i am too short for that. i am 16 years old, and im 5'0". how would i get to become a model at all? its not like you see alot of models that are 5 foot.. you know?

Hi, Kayla! At your age and height, you'll have little luck with modeling agencies, unfortunately...unless you happen to find one that has a teen modeling division with a flexible height requirement. So that could be your first option to look into. Other than that, freelance modeling is your next best bet because you act as your own agent and find your own work. It is much more challenging and harder to do, not to mention you'll need at least one parent/guardian present at all times and being the point of contact for anyone you plan on working with since you are underage. Right now those are your two alternatives.
