    I do agree that you have to be persistent and not take no for an answer. I had been a model for about 2-3 years. I'm 5'6 and it was hard for me. I did suffer from EDs and such, but as I was beginning to be at a healthy weight...it was a lot harder. I had clients say I was "too fat" and my hips were "too wide" and chest "too large". I knew that those clients weren't for me because they weren't considering the idea about body diversity. However, within a few months, I was able to make it to NYFW. It was the greatest thing in my life and I did cry because wow...I did it. It is possible. The industry is a mess and its dirty. There are standards, and it takes someone sharp and hard to pierce through it. I promise it is possible. Impossible is just I'm possible.

    This video is extremely important to me, because my entire life I've dreamed of modeling, but I'm only 5ft tall. To see someone in my "height bracket" take on something so amazing with confidence gives me hope that one day modeling will be more accessible for girls like me. Too late for me though, I got tattoos 🀣

    The thing for me is I always stress and feel super self conscious about my height. I avoid high heels at all costs because being already over 6 ft, I just would feel more like a monster than I already think I am haha!

    This might be an unpopular comment but the runways choose models that are about the same height so they can make the clothes fit any of the models (like they say in the beginning). It’s not because of discrimination. Also having models be the same height looks better when they walk in a single file line at the end of the show.

    Your videos are so inspiring! I seriously never realized how under represented that People of Color or Women of Color feel, and even how under represented that I felt until you rocked that runway. I admire your confidence and your failures, and oddly, seeing you get frustrated over your failures and even choking through tears just proves how human everyone who's ever lived your challenges are, and how necessary it is to fail and with those failures, to succeed. Thank you so much for what you do, showing the beauty and the hardships of these challenges and highlighting the obstacles of minorities in the runway, beauty competitions and in society. Keep doing your best and know that we're with you!

    Meanwhile I’m 5’10-11 as a woman I am one of the most insecure person about my height because women are seen to be shorter. I wish I weren’t because the offers I’ve had for being tall get to me because I wish I wouldn’t be as insecure.
