PETITE OF THE WEEK
Meet Ivy, she is Petite Model of the Week, here is what Ivy's says about being petite and makin strides in modeling.
“I feel as a petite model, you have to be persistent to the point where you become borderline crazy. You’re going to see 5’9” plus on every other casting, which sucks but that’s life. I just apply to almost every casting in the Florida and Georgia area that doesn’t have nudity or a height requirement. But when I get a job or gig, it means that much more because I had to try harder to get it than the average model . I have been featured in Jet Magazine, The Source, and Maxim.com. I also recently shot a billboard for Aspire Online Magazine. But there are so many times I almost quit modeling, but my friends and family are so supportive of me. They encouraged me to keep going. I have been the underdog my whole life, not just in modeling but in every aspect of life so I’m used to it."

(Often I feature aspiring shorter models who are making strides despite their height. If you'd like to be Petite of the Week emails me at: email@example.com, and submit a headshot, a few sentences on how you are making strides in modeling.)
