Petite of the Week is Melissa


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.


P.s: If you would like to be Petite of the Week, send your headshot or commercial print styled shot to me at and share some insight on how despite height you are making strides! Petite Pride!
