As human beings we are all beautiful and amazing in our different ways. My advice will be to stay true to yourself and always be you. When you appreciate yourself as a human being, others will as well.”

Given this range of options, it is important you begin your modeling career by deciding the type of modeling that best suits you.,” he advised.
