PETITE OF THE WEEK
Petite of the Week is Melissa. She shared about her pursuits as a shorter striving model, "we all come in different shapes and sizes, so I think it's only fair to give everyone a chance in pursuing something they may have a passion in doing. It's more common to see girls below 5'7 anyway. At least every girl I know isn't as tall as a runway, so why shouldn't there be an industry that strikes a wider audience? It also depends on how the photographer works the camera too. A lot of people have told me that they expected me to be a lot taller in person compared to my photos. I only stand to be about 5'2, but my spirits are tall and touching the sky! Honestly, I believe anyone can model, you just have to work with what you have! And clothes come in all different sizes for a reason. :)"
Thanks Melissa, no matter how tall you stand it is best to never be short-sighted, the more you bring forward what you DO have the better, in life and in modeling.
