Vancouver's modeling industry is not that small but very bland. Most people here are hobbyists and rarely pay models that are not the specific runway look. Being Maxim's cover girl will mean my talent shines more than "that white girl" everyone wants.
I've always wanted to do something similar to exchange programs/co-op. With this reward- if not for school or my business, I want travel to work with talents and have pieces in my portfolio from all over the world. Also with the economy now, I really hope to use this money to grow it into something profitable as fast as possible. Then I will be able to repay everyone that I owe my life to and pay it forward.
