    "If you want to make it as a model in New York, DNA Models is arguably the best NYC modeling agency. I've always wanted to model since I was a kid and it would be a dream to be represented by DNA. They have Alessandra Ambrosio, Natalia Vodianova, and Imaan Hammam! What privilege to be photographed with or walk alongside these fierce angels on the runway! "

    "I think Ford Models is the most inclusive amongst all the modeling agencies in the US. They have Ashley Graham, who's plus-size, and Alek Wek, who's beautifully exotic. It would be unbelievable to be represented by them. I'd probably send an online application or audition at a go-see near me, I don't know. I still need to pluck up the courage! "

    "I've read somewhere that getting noticed as a model is relatively easier at IMG. You need to fill-out an online application form on their website and include your portfolio pictures (close-up, full-length, headshot, you know the drill). I will do so next month. I hope they see something in me! "
