CarolynnQ: Story & Interview

I am 19 years old who was born an raised in Downtown Los Angeles that wanted to get into Film and Photography or just major in Interior Design; I like expressing myself and letting people see my point of view. My life slightly turned when my boyfriend’s cousin needed a canvas for her cosmetology class; in the beginning I went just because she needed last-minute people to practice on but the more I went, the more I enjoyed dressing up.  Her class ended 2 years ago and I only started modeling for about 4 weeks now. Even though I am still considered a “new model”, I have learned so much that will help me follow my dream jobs because they all include working with angles, lighting, etc. My goal is to continue with education and then decide what I want to major in but for now during my early years of going to a community college, modeling is my passion.

What made you want to pursue a modeling career instead of any other career?
