    I honestly do like Michelle Kare's body, but it's not for the runway. Not because she's short, but primarily because she's a tad too muscular. Runway models are supposed to be long and lean, kind of like hangers for clothes. She couldn't do the "arms swaying and grazing the butt" move as gracefully because her back muscles were in the way. Still, good luck to her and all aspiring "short", runway models.

    I started tearing up a bit when you walked out on the runway. You did it and were amazing! I'm 5'6" and can't walk in heels, so I gave up the idea years ago that I could walk ever walk a fashion runway. Watching this video and seeing you completing this challenge just reminds me to not limit myself.

    The way this video and your body type played out os something that I have been needing to hear. You keep saying that models are usually around the 5'10" height and are super lean. I love that with your height, and the struggles you faced you still went after it - because here's the thing I am a 5'11" girl, but I have been struggling with the way my body looks. I am not fat by any means but I don't watch what I eat, I don't work out and when I gain weight I tend to gain it in my butt and thighs. You empowered me to know that my body is perfect, and I should love myself for how I am. Thank you for doing videos like this!!!!!

      @Coade Yeah, only because it limits the heels you can wear. 6'2 with heels is ok but 6'2 plus additional inches makes it difficult to runway. Nothing against you or your height though, I'd love to be 4 inches taller.

    Here’s my video ideas... I’m an artist so here’s mine
    Studying Art - there are different types and ways and mediums and sectors to art, I’d like you to try all of them, Poster, Acrylic, Oil, Pencil(colored), and my fave Watercolors, and try to develop a character that represents you, I want artists to have a word cause a lot of people tell artists that they don’t have a real job, and also people ask for a cheaper price cause it’s “just art” and I’m like bruh do you know how much my materials are? How much time I spent? How many years artists spend to study and master art? Only for you to degrade them that bad??? I’ve read so many artist stories, like this one where a “friend” was buying one of their art pieces, the artist was pretty known, and her painting costs £250 and the “friend” said that “I went to school for Medical” and the artist replied with “I went to school for art too” and then the doctor replied with “Yeah but it’s just drawing anyone can draw and anyone can start to draw at a very young age”
    And which the artist replied “I know but it takes time to make art that is good enough for the algorithm” doctor “and that’s why art shouldn’t be that expensive! Sigh* whatever... in it for the money not the Art” artist “you’re a b*tch” and she unfriended that useless doctor who doesn’t understand other people... artist needs so much justice...
    that’s why I want to challenge Michelle to try art :)
    Or try animating :)
    With youtube animators who also need justice cause they get degraded as well... you can do it with James or Jaiden or Domics or Adam or Alex but preferably Jaiden or James or Adam, since they will be able to contact each other and you can be able to do the video with all three of them :)

    Michelle's videos follow the same outline "tries new thing in title, talks about what that thing is, talks about her experiences so far, gets into it, is very excited about it, cries a lot about a week in, pulls it together and gives motivational speech afterwards about how she didn't think she could do it but did anyway". Is that how this vid will be going? Haven't watched it yet. Lol

    I've been a child model for 12 years now, I was with my mom in the mall when I was 2 and asked to be one. I was asked because I'm multiracial and I'm short as well lol. I'm 14 and 5'0 hahaha. That's why I'm usually asked to just for commercials and solo photoshoots. But as I grew my body type changed and I feel like that pushed me back a little bit. Because I have a triangle shaped body I'm now not sure if I will be able to make that my adult career or not...
