TGS Talent

To favor a strong community over ridiculous industry requirements has been the change I have wanted to see. TGS is about empowering not only women but men to create art by creating and becoming, a community, a voice and a inspiration.

TGS Talent

I moved out to California to ultimately pursue my modeling career. The way I view modeling is not the way most stereotypical people view it. I think of modeling as a way to create a community with like minded individuals. Once I moved out here and became more involved in the industry, modeling became less and less about the community and more and more about the your volume of your name, basically the people you knew. I feel the industry has attempted to change there objective to be more open minded. Being more open minded, in the sense that, they are allowing plus models into the industry along with colored models and short models etc. But that mindset is not open enough for me. The industry says it's changing but I don't see the changes I want to see. It has changed just on the outside but once you are in it, you are aware of what the industry surrounds themselves with. I want to see the standards and requirements to dissipate. This industry tells young girls that they are "too" much of something, "too thin" ,"too fat", "too tall". No one can perform to their highest potential if they are being sent on castings through their agency in which they are told "you are too much of you". My physical appearance is temporary and I know that all of our physical appearances are temporary. What's important to me, is the beauty that we carry onto when we grow old and that does not require physical beauty.

So I've decided I never wanted to be signed with a model agency because my values and the industry's values simply do not add up. I only want to create a strong community and through that strong community, to influence young women to be strong through the daily struggles of being a girl in this society.

I am so excited to announce, as of today, I am officially signed with TGS Talent. This agency is my community that I have been searching for. I knew I wanted to be apart of a agency that sits in between the modeling world and the community world and this agency is in the middle. To favor a strong community over ridiculous industry requirements has been the change I have wanted to see. TGS is about empowering not only women but men to create art by creating and becoming, a community, a voice and a inspiration.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
