The Latest with Dania Denise

Hello, readers! This is a quick post to let you know that I've been super busy with projects these past few weeks. It's been one of those times where stuff just keeps coming up and I've been living out of my car and couch surfing at friends' houses in order to be everywhere all at once...shoots, fashion shows, castings, auditions and acting gigs--you name it, I'm doing it! LOL.

Rest assured, I've received the latest reader questions via blog post comments and I haven't forgotten about any of you...bear with me while I get around to answering emails and sorting through which reader questions I need to answer/update my other modeling blog with. And of course I have many more modeling related posts to add to this blog as well!

I literally just got a "day off" starting tomorrow and the first thing I plan on doing is sleeping in, haha. Then I'll get online and start knocking out the things on my "to do list." So don't worry, I'm still here!

Stumbled upon your blog- love it! Many people think that the life of a model is a breeze- you show that it is much more than that, and seem intelligent and classy to boot- keep up the great work! Hope you had a great day off :).

Hi Dania, Im a 5'8 guy, and Id love to do modeling. I know I deff cant do runway but im fine with that. Im very photogenic, brazilian, have a great face structure, with a wonderful jaw line, squared face shape. im tanned, got a straight hair, athletic body, great teeth and skin, i have a face very symmetric and i love my eyebrows and nose. (kinda narcissistic here lol, but im being honest.) i have a strong personality, and i dont give up on things easily. if im cute, why not working with beauty, right? and just one more thing, i have a birth mark (beauty mark) next to my superior lips, just like "marylin monroe". sometimes because of my beauty, some people judge me, and they say (some) that i have a very female beauty. i dont know if its good or bad, but i feel comfy with what i see in the mirror. oh and btw, i came from the same city of the brazilian male model "Francisco Lachowski". and now im living in Boston where Gisele Bundchen also Brazilian, is living actually. lol

well.. my question now is, do you think i could try to send comp card to those huge agencies that most of their work is just for runway/fashion modeling?

Elite/Ford they also have printing/commercial division, right?

if not, would you suggest me some agencies around here in the new england. (Boston, NYC,) I know Click Models work with some devisions not just fashion. Model Inc Club too. There are a bunch of them around the US, but i just dont know how to find them.

I know I can do works like, headshot, wearing glasses/sung. lifestyle, editorials, catalogs, commercials and printing in general, i could probably work as a fit model too. i guess id do kids/teen editorials as well, since im 19 yrs old, but people think im 15. "baby face"

im 58' 172cm , skinny waist 25, weight 120 55kg

(sorry for being too narcissistic, but im just being honest, cuz i really need to know...) im giving the first step now to start my careeer.

Thanks and Ill be anxiously waiting for your responde. God bless you. XXX

Dear Dania Denise,

This is Airica from twitter! I just wanted to say, thank you SOOO much for every advice you have given to your readers. I wanted to thank you because ever since I have discovered your site to learn more about the modeling industry, I actually got a callback from FORD Models! This is because i took every advice you had to offer on your blogspot. So once again, I want to thank you! I am so happy I found your site. I am going to tell every aspiring model I meet to use your site as an advantage! I couldn't thank you enough :')

Hi, Airica!!! Omg, you can't believe how excited I was to read your comment! I am THRILLED to hear about the callback with Ford and I wish you all the best and hope that everything works out!

Your kind words have made my day and I am so happy that my advice worked in your favor...sometimes I think new/aspiring models doubt me when I tell them some of the info I know by heart about the industry but you prove that I would never steer anyone wrong. Thank you for sharing the wonderful news and please keep me updated!!!
