Being a model for many years has inevitably gone hand in hand with battling and overcoming continuous hurdles that are related within the fashion industry. Personally I have struggled an eating disorder and spent the last 25 years in a world full of rejection and criticism.  Sounds awesome doesn’t it? Ha! Truth is, once you get to know what your modelling niche is and have regular clients, it’s a great job to have – but it takes time to get there. One hurdle that particularly perplexes me on a daily
