there are so easy ways to smuggle yourself through life somehow. A little lie can make things all easier. In some cases honesty is a problem. My honesty means, that my modelling can be negatively effected. Let me explain:
-due to my height cause I can´t do any catwalk stuff (but than I can´t imagine myself on a catwalk anyway. I have this image stuck in my head of depressed looking models marching over the catwalk & between them me wiggling along smiling and twinkling towards photographers - which is so absurd it would almost be fun actually). I could easily pretend to be 1,73 m instead of my real deal 1,70 m but I do not see why I should. The higher the heels the closer to heaven :-)
-cause I´m technically neither what they call a regular model nor a plus-size. I´m a size M-L, so stuck between those cathegories in "nowhere land". I guess I need my own cathegory. After all I´d rather be called a Pin up Model or Retro Model cause this is what I identify with.
-I´m a grown up woman of 29 years of age. (but than I have 6 years modelling experience). People often remark that I do look younger than that, but I will never deny my age to get a job cause someone just wants to shoot girls under 25. Age i just a number.
This is why so many girls and ladies lie about their age, their measurements, their height etc. etc. My point is that mother nature, destiny and excessive hula hooping had a reason to shape me the way Iam. I rather go the hard and honest way than the one with the bad conscience, frightened that they possibly find out I´m a fake. The cool people, the fun people will like to work with me cause of the qualities I have and not because of those Iam lacking.
My word for the day: Believe in your qualities even if you are a "old, fat dwarf" like me and everything will be alright in the end ;-)
