It was around this time a year ago that I had almost given up on the idea of modeling. After being turned down by a few agencies, I figured I gave it a shot and decided to move on. It wasn't until I woke up one day to an out-of-the-blue email with the subject line "REPRESENTATION" that I reconsidered. A week later, I flew down to Chicago to meet with the agent who had reached out. I left our meeting grinning ear to ear, contract in hand, and an offer on the table. It's been a wild ride since then--I've made incredible friends, worked with talented artists, and and started living a lifestyle I never expected after graduating from @michiganross. If there's a life you want, go create it for yourself. As a Chicago stranger told me once, the universe will conspire to meet you, but you have to meet the universe half way.
