Advice to models of the future?
Never compromise your health for the sake of a job. Exude confidence, not arrogance; Be proud of your identity, not boastful; Your attitude books you gigs, not necessarily your aptitude alone; never stop learning, never stop giving; value and prioritize your health, education and family; respect your body; learn to speak eloquently and respectfully (especially to your agent and clients), not boastfully and demeaning – there is no notion of entitlement as a “model” - it is your job; smile.
