Quotes:

If you are persistent and work hard you will succeed.

This business is very hard even though people often think that it is easy and that the only thing a model needs to do is look beautiful. However, in reality it is much different than that.

One of the most important things in life is to know what you want and what you don’t want.

Interesting Facts:
